[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.
