[AP] The practice of all the bodhisattvas is to let go of grasping
When encountering things one finds pleasant or attractive,
Considering them to be like rainbows in the summer skies—
Beautiful in appearance, yet in truth devoid of any substance.
[KM] When you come across something you enjoy,
Though beautiful to experience, like a summer rainbow,
Don’t take it as real.
Let go of attachment — this is the practice of a bodhisattva.
[RS] When you encounter attractive objects,
Though they seem beautiful
Like a rainbow in summer, don’t regard them as real
And give up attachment—This is the practice of Bodhisattvas.
[AB] A bodhisattva’s practice is, when meeting with pleasing objects, not to regard them as truly existent,
even though they appear beautifully, like a summer’s rainbow, and (thus) to rid ourselves of clinging and attachment.
