见无病人,当愿众生,
入真实慧,永无病恼。

见疾病人,当愿众生,
知身空寂,离乖诤法。

Seeing persons without sickness,
[reflect that] ‘May sentient beings,
enter true wisdom,
[to] forever [be] without sickness and afflictions.’

Seeing persons with sickness,
[reflect that] ‘May sentient beings,
know [their] bodies [to be] empty [and] still,*
[to] depart [from] disharmonious and contentious dharmas.’**
