Bodhisattvas’ (Compassion) Practices -24

24

Diverse sufferings are like the death of a child in a dream. By apprehending illusory appearances as real, one becomes weary. Therefore, when encountering disagreeable cicumstances, viewing them as illusory is the Bodhisattvas’ practice.

Modern Translation

(24)

A bodhisattva’s practice is,
At the time when meeting with adverse conditions,
    to see them as deceptive,
For various sufferings are like the death of our child in a dream
And to take (such) deceptive appearances to be true is a tiresome waste.

– The Berzin Archives Thirty-seven Bodhisattva Practices 
(Bodhisattva  — In Tibetan Buddhism, a Bodhisattva is anyone who is motivated by compassion and seeks enlightenment not only for him/herself but also for everyone…)
