[ZR] Without the complete intention definitely to be free from circling,
There is no way to pacify attachment seeking pleasurable effects in the ocean of circling.
Also, by craving for cyclic existence, embodied beings are continuously bound.
Therefore, at the very beginning seek renunciation. 

[AP] Whilst lacking pure renunciation there is no way to pacify

The continual thirst for pleasure in the ocean of samsara,

And since all living beings are bound by their craving for existence,

You must begin by finding the determination to be free.

[GW] Those with bodies are bound by the craving for existence.

Without pure renunciation, there is no way to still
Attraction to the pleasures of samsara.
Thus, from the outset seek renunciation. 

[US]  Without a pure withdrawal there is no means

To still the longing for a happy outcome of the sea of existence;

And by craving for existence, too, those who have bodies

Are fettered all about: therefore seek first withdrawal.

[RT] Lust for existence chains all corporeal beings -

Addiction to the pleasures of the life-cycle

Is only cured by transcendent renunciation (niryana).

So seek transcendence first of all!
