若有所施,
当愿众生,
一切能舍,
心无爱着。

– 文殊菩萨
    (华严经: 净行品11: 第9偈)

If there is that given,
[reflect that] ‘May sentient beings,
[of] everything* [be] able [to] renounce,
[with their] minds without attachment.’

– Manjusri Bodhisattva
   (Avatamsaka Sutra: Chapter 11 On Pure Practices: Verse 9)

* That is non-essential for Buddhahood,
   that might be useful to others
