见惭耻人,当愿众生,
具惭耻行,藏护诸根。

见无惭耻,当愿众生,
舍离无惭,住大慈道。

[reflect that] ‘May sentient beings,
[be] complete with [moral] shame [in their] practice,
[to] carefully protect all [sense] roots.’*

Seeing those without [moral] shame,
[reflect that] ‘May sentient beings,
renounce and depart [from] shamelessness,
[to] abide [on the] path [to] great loving-kindness.’

– Manjusri Bodhisattva
