If of sentient beings respectfully aided in matters,
thus is as respectful aiding in matters of the Thus Come Ones.
If enabling sentient beings to give rise to joy,
this thus enables all Thus Come Ones to have joy.

Because by sentient beings then giving rise to great compassion,
because by great compassion giving rise to the Bodhi Mind [i.e. Bodhicitta],
because by the Bodhi Mind accomplishing Equal Right Awakening.
