[AP] The practice of all the bodhisattvas is to strive towards the goal,
Which is the supreme state of changeless, everlasting liberation,
Since all the happiness of the three realms lasts but a moment,
And then is quickly gone, just like dewdrops on blades of grass.
[KM] The happiness of the three worlds disappears in a moment,
Like a dewdrop on a blade of grass.

like dew on the tips of grass.
