Home » Quotes » Verses On Pleasure

见乐著人,当愿众生,
以法自娱,欢爱不舍。

见无乐著,当愿众生,
有为事中,心无所乐。

– 文殊菩萨
(华严经: 净行品: 第80-81偈)

Seeing those attached to [sense] pleasures,
[reflect that] ‘May sentient beings,
with the Dharma personally [find spiritual] pleasure,
[with] joyful delight, never renouncing it.’

Seeing those unattached to [sense] pleasures,
[reflect that] ‘May sentient beings,
[when] within conditioned matters,
[have] minds without joy [in them].’

– Manjusri Bodhisattva
(Avatamsaka Sutra: Chapter 11 On Pure Practices: Verse 80-81)
