འདོད་པའི་ཡོན་ཏནལན་ཚྭི་ཆུདང་འདྲ། །ཇི་ཙམསྤྱད་ཅིངསྲེད་པ་འཕེལ་བའགྱུར། །གང་ལཞེན་ཆགསསྐྱེ་བི་དངོས་པོརྣམས། །འཕྲལ་ལསྤོང་བརྒྱལ་སྲསལག་ལེནཡིན

[AP] The practice of all the bodhisattvas is to turn away immediately

From those things which bring desire and attachment.

For the pleasures of the senses are just like salty water:

The more we taste of them, the more our thirst increases.

[KM] Sensual pleasures are like salty water:

The deeper you drink, the thirstier you become.

Any object that you attach to,

Right away, let it go — this is the practice of a bodhisattva.

[RS] Sensual pleasures are like saltwater:

The more you indulge, the more thirst increases.

Abandon at once those things which breed

Clinging attachment—This is the practice of Bodhisattvas.

[AB] A bodhisattva’s practice is immediately to abandon any objects that cause our clinging and attachment to increase, 

for objects of desire are like salt water: the more we have indulged (in them, our) thirst (for them) increases (in turn).
