[AP]The perfect buddhas, who are the source of all benefit and joy,
Come into being through accomplishing the sacred Dharma.
And since this in turn depends on knowing how to practice,
I shall now describe the practices of all the buddhas’ heirs.
[KM]The fully awake, the buddhas, source of joy and well-being,
All come from integrating the noble Way.
Because integration depends on your knowing how to practice,
I will explain the practice of all bodhisattvas.
[AB] Fully enlightened Buddhas, the sources of benefit and happiness,
have come about from (their) having actualized the hallowed Dharma.
Moreover, since that depended on (their) having known what its practices are,
I shall explain a bodhisattva’s practice.
