རྙེད་བཀུརདབང་གིསཕན་ཚུནརྩོདའགྱུར་ཞིང༌། །ཐོས་བསམ་སྒོམ་པའི་ྱ་བཉམས་འགྱུརབས། །མཛའ་བཤེས་ཁྱིམདངསྦྱིན་བདག་ཁྱིམརྣམས། །ཆགས་པསྤོང་བརྒྱལ་སྲསལག་ལེནཡིན

[AP] The practice of all the bodhisattvas is to let go of attachment

To the households of benefactors and of family and friends,

Since one’s study, reflection and meditation will all diminish

When one quarrels and competes for honours and rewards.

[KM] When you squabble with others about status and rewards,

You undermine learning, reflection, and meditation.

Let go of any investment in your family circle

Or the circle of those who support you — this is the practice of a bodhisattva.

[RS] Reward and respect cause us to quarrel

And make hearing, thinking, and meditation decline.

For this reason give up attachment to

The households of friends, relations and benefactors—

This is the practice of Bodhisattvas.

[AB] A bodhisattva’s practice is to rid ourselves of attachment to homes of relatives and friends and homes of patrons, because, 

under the power of (wanting) gain and respect, we will quarrel with each other and our activities of listening, thinking, and meditating will decline.
