[AP] Even if others, equal or inferior to me in status,
Should, out of arrogance, disparage me,
To honor them, as I would my teacher,
By bowing down my head before them—this is the practice of all the bodhisattvas.
[KM] Even if your peers or subordinates,
Put you down to make themselves look better,
Treat them respectfully as you would your teacher:
Put them above you — this is the practice of a bodhisattva.
[RS] If an equal or inferior person
Disparages you out of pride,
Place her, as you would your spiritual teacher,
With respect on the crown of your head—This is the practice of Bodhisattvas.
[AB] A bodhisattva’s practice is, even if an individual, our equal or inferior,
were to treat (us) insultingly out of the power of his arrogance,
to receive him on the crown of our heads respectfully, like a guru.
