脱去俗服,
当愿众生,
勤修善根,
舍诸罪轭。

When taking off worldly clothes,*
[reflect that] ‘May sentient beings,
diligently cultivate good roots,**
renounce all obstructive transgressions.’***

– Manjusri Bodhisattva

* to bathe, change or renounce lay life
** spiritual foundations free from attachment, aversion and delusion
*** from negative karma created, which is like a burdensome yoke
