Verse On Full Filiality

孝事父母,
当愿众生,
善事于佛,
护养一切。

– 文殊菩萨
    (华严经: 净行品11: 第2偈)

[With] filiality serving [one’s] father [and] mother,
[reflect that] ‘May sentient beings
[with goodness skilfully] attend upon [all] Buddhas,
[by] protecting [and] nurturing all [sentient beings].’ *

– Manjusri Bodhisattva
(Avatamsaka Sutra: Chapter 11 On Pure Practices: Verse 2)

* As all other beings are our parents
in past and future lives too.
As all Buddhas care for all beings,
they wish us to care for them too.
