得柔软食,当愿众生,
大悲所熏,心意柔软。

得粗涩食,当愿众生,
心无染著,绝世贪爱。

– 文殊菩萨
(华严经: 净行品: 第118-119偈)

Attaining tender and soft food,
[reflect that] ‘May sentient beings,
[by] great compassion as permeated,
[have] minds that are gentle and supple.’

Attaining coarse and rough food,
[reflect that] ‘May sentient beings,
[have] minds without defiled attachments,
[having] severed worldly greedy attachments.’

– Manjusri Bodhisattva
(Avatamsaka Sutra: Chapter 11 On Pure Practices: Verse 118-119)
