[AP] Even though I may be famous and revered by all,
And as rich as Vaishravana, the god of wealth himself,
To see the futility of all the glory and riches of this world,
And to remain without conceit—this is the practice of all the bodhisattvas.
[KM] Even when you are famous, honored by all,
And as rich as the god of wealth himself,
Don’t be pompous. Know that the magnificence of existence
Has no substance — this is the practice of a bodhisattva.
[RS] Though you become famous and many bow to you,
And you gain riches to equal Vaishravana’s,
See that worldly fortune is without essence,
And be unconceited—This is the practice of Bodhisattvas.
[AB] A bodhisattva’s practice is, even if we are sweetly praised, bowed to with their heads by many wandering beings,
or have obtained (riches) comparable to the fortune of Vaishravana (the Guardian of Wealth),
never to be conceited, by seeing that worldly prosperity has no essence.
