(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.
