[ZR] Even if renunciation has been developed,
[AP] Yet if this renunciation is not embraced
By the pure motivation of bodhichitta,
It will not become a cause for the perfect bliss of unsurpassed awakening,
So the wise should generate supreme bodhichitta.
[GW] Renunciation without pure bodhi-mind
Does not bring forth the perfect bliss
Of unsurpassed enlightenment;
[US] But since that withdrawal, too, unless controlled
By a pure ‘mind-generation’ does not become the cause
Of unsurpassed Enlightenment’s consummate felicity,
Intelligent ones should generate the excellent Bodhi-mind.
[RT] Transcendence without the spirit of enlightenment (Bodhicitta)
Cannot generate the supreme bliss
Of unexcelled enlightenment - therefore,
The Bodhisattva conceives the supreme spirit of enlightenment.
