སྡུག་བསྔལ་སྣ་ཚོགསརྨི་ལམབུཤིལྟར། །འཁྲུལ་སྣངབདེན་པརབཟུང་བསཐང་ཆད། །དེའི་ཕྱིརམི་མཐུནརྐྱེནདང་འཕྲད་པི་ཚེ། །འཁྲུལ་པལྟ་བརྒྱལ་སྲསལག་ལེནཡིན

[AP] The practice of all the bodhisattvas is to recognize delusion

Whenever one is confronted by adversity or misfortune.

For these sufferings are just like the death of a child in a dream,

And it’s so exhausting to cling to delusory perceptions as real.

[KM] All forms of suffering are like dreaming that your child has died.

Taking confusion as real wears you out.

When you run into misfortune,

Look at it as confusion — this is the practice of a bodhisattva.

[RS] All forms of suffering are like a child’s death in a dream.

Holding illusory appearances to be true makes you weary.

Therefore when you meet with disagreeable circumstances,

See them as illusory—This is the practice of Bodhisattvas.

[AB] A bodhisattva’s practice is, at the time when meeting with adverse conditions, to see them as deceptive, 

for various sufferings are like the death of our child in a dream and to take (such) deceptive appearances to be true is a tiresome waste.
