To not become happy because of praise

To not become happy because of praise

བསྟོད་པས་དགའ་བར་མི་འགྱུར་ལ།
སྨད་པས་་མི་དགར་མི་འགྱུར་ཞིང།
རང་གི་ཡོན་ཏན་ལེགས་གནས་པ།
སྐྱེ་བོ་དམ་པའི་མཚན་ཉིད་ཡིན།

To not become happy because of praise,
To not become unhappy because of blame,
To support one’s own good virtues,
This is the character of the supreme being.

Compassion

The sacred mind that is compassion,

may it grow in those hearts that have never seen it,

and where it has, do not diminish,

may compassion grow forever and ever and ever.
