见端正人,当愿众生,
于佛菩萨,常生净信。

见丑陋人,当愿众生,
于不善事,不生乐著。

– 文殊菩萨
(华严经: 净行品: 第86-87偈)

Seeing proper-looking persons,
[reflect that] ‘May sentient beings,
in [the] Buddhas [and] Bodhisattvas,
always give rise to pure faith.’

Seeing ugly-looking persons,
[reflect that] ‘May sentient beings,
in unwholesome matters,
not give rise to joy [and] attachment.’

– Manjusri Bodhisattva
(Avatamsaka Sutra: Chapter 11 On Pure Practices: Verse 86-87)
