[AP] Even if others should declare before the world
All manner of unpleasant things about me,
To speak only of their qualities in return,
With a mind that’s filled with love—this is the practice of all the bodhisattvas.
[KM] Even if someone broadcasts to the whole universe
Slanderous and ugly rumors about you,
In return, with an open and caring heart,
Praise his or her abilities — this is the practice of a bodhisattva.
[RS] Even if someone broadcasts all kinds of unpleasant remarks
About you throughout the three thousand worlds,
In return, with a loving mind,
Speak of his good qualities—This is the practice of Bodhisattvas.
[AB] A bodhisattva’s practice is, even if someone were to publicize throughout the thousand,
million, billion worlds all kinds of unpleasant things about us, to speak in return about his good qualities, with an attitude of love.
