Bodhisattvas’ (Compassion) Practices -33


Because the influence of gain and respect causes quarreling and the decline of the activities of listening, pondering and meditation, to abandon attachment to the households of friends, relations and benefactors is the Bodhisattvas’ practice.

Modern Translation 

A Bodhisattva’s Daily Practice


A bodhisattva’s practice is to rid ourselves of attachment
To homes of relatives and friends and homes of patrons,
Because, under the power of (wanting) gain and respect,
We will quarrel with each other and our activities of listening,
    thinking, and meditating will decline.

 – 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…)
