ཡུལ་ངནསྤངས་པསཉོན་མོངསརིམ་གྱིསའགྲིབ། །རྣམ་གཡེངམེད་པདགེ་སྦྱོརངང་གིའཕེལ། །རིག་པ་དྭངསཔསཆོསངེས་ཤེས་སྐྱེ། །དབེན་པ་བསྟེན་པ་རྒྱལ་སྲསལག་ལེནཡིན

[AP] The practice of all the bodhisattvas is to take to solitary places,

Avoiding the unwholesome, so that destructive emotions gradually fade away,

And, in the absence of distraction, virtuous practice naturally gains strength;

Whilst, with awareness clearly focused, we gain conviction in the teachings.

[KM] Don’t engage disturbances and reactive emotions gradually fade away;

Don’t engage distractions and spiritual practice naturally grows;

Keep awareness clear and vivid and confidence in the way arises.

Rely on silence — this is the practice of a bodhisattva.

[RS] By avoiding bad objects, disturbing emotions gradually decrease.

Without distraction, virtuous activities naturally increase.

With clarity of mind, conviction in the teaching arises.

Cultivate seclusion — This is the practice of Bodhisattvas.

[AB] A bodhisattva’s practice is to rely on seclusion where, by having rid ourselves of detrimental objects, 

our disturbing emotions and attitudes gradually become stymied; by lacking distractions, our constructive practices naturally increase; 

and by clearing our awareness, our certainty grows in the Dharma.
