\ As one dumb, blind, deaf, imbecilic, or jealous,
\ In the castes of heretics, or those with wrong view,
\ In the lower castes, or as a butcher.

\ Until enlightenment is reached,
\ May I always take birth as a practitioner of the holy Dharma.
.
L1 : [Taking full advantage of this precious human life]
.
\ Having been born as a Dharma practitioner,
\ May I not be under the power of non-virtue.
.
\ With a life unhindered by illness,
\ May I meet the Dharma soon after birth.
\ Having met the Dharma soon after birth,
\ May I train my mind in the wisdom of study, contemplation, and meditation.
.
\ May my mind be able to remain in single-pointed concentration,
\ Six consciousnesses undistracted by objects,
\ Developing physical power without defective limbs,
\ Sense organs perfect, as the object of veneration in a higher birth.
.
L1 : [A gradual path of virtuous methods and wisdom]
.
\ Able to accomplish all the Buddha’s Dharma,
\ May I renounce the world as a youth and maintain morality,
\ Always relying on holy spiritual masters ,
\ And gradually traverse the ten paths.
.
L1 : [Ultimate Goal: Enlightenment]
.
\ May I reach the unsurpassable essence of enlightenment .
\ Having attained the unsurpassable essence of enlightenment,
\ For all six realms beings in samsara,
\ Through various actions of skillful means,
\ May I perform the benefit of beings through the four social gatherings.
