[ZR] Endlessly reborn in cyclic existence,
[AP] Again and yet again, they are reborn in limitless samsara,
And constantly tormented by the three forms of suffering.

Contemplate their plight and generate supreme bodhichitta.
[GW] Born and reborn in boundless samsara,
All beings, your mothers, are in this condition.

Three miseries torment them without cease:
In circumstances like this are – our mothers!
Think of their state and then generate the excellent Bodhi-mind.
[RT] Born and born again in endless life-cycles,
Uninterruptedly tormented by the three miseries -
Such is the state of all beings, all just your mothers -
From your natural feelings, conceive the highest spirit!
