This is to be done by one skilled in aims
who wants to break through to the state of peace:
Be capable, upright, & straightforward,
easy to instruct, gentle, & not conceited,
content & easy to support,
with few duties, living lightly,
with peaceful faculties, masterful,
modest, & no greed for supporters.
 

爲了解脫、獲得甯靜,
善達目標者當如此行:
能幹、端正、直接、
易教、溫和、不自滿、
知足、易養、
少管事、生活簡樸、
諸根寂靜、技能完善、
謙虛、對供養者不貪。

Do not do the slightest thing
that the wise would later censure.
 

不做任何
事後受智者指責之事。

Think: Happy, at rest,
may all beings be happy at heart.
Whatever beings there may be,
        weak or strong, without exception,
        long, large,
        middling, short,
        subtle, blatant,
        seen & unseen,
        near & far,
        born & seeking birth:
May all beings be happy at heart.
 

這樣想: 喜樂、平安,
願一切衆生心有喜樂。
一切衆生,
        無論軟弱、強壯、
        長、大、
        中等、短小、
        精細、粗顯、
        可見、不可見、
        遠、近、
        已出生的、将投生的:
願一切衆生心有喜樂。

Let no one deceive another
or despise anyone anywhere,
or through anger or irritation
wish for another to suffer.
 

願人們不相互欺騙、
不鄙視任何地方的任何人,
不以怒意、敵意,
願他人受苦。

As a mother would risk her life
to protect her child, her only child,
even so should one cultivate a limitless heart
with regard to all beings.
With good will for the entire cosmos,
cultivate a limitless heart:
Above, below, & all around,
unobstructed, without enmity or hate.
Whether standing, walking,
sitting, or lying down,
        as long as one is alert,
one should be resolved on this mindfulness.
This is called a sublime abiding
here & now.
 

如一位母親
舍命保護親子、獨子,
他更應對一切衆生
長養無量之心。
以對全宇宙的善意,
長養無量之心:
        自上、自下、周遭,
        無障礙、無敵意、無恨意。
        無論站、行、
        坐、臥,
        凡清醒時,
他應當确立此念。
這稱爲即時即地的
梵住之心。

Not taken with views,
but virtuous & consummate in vision,
having subdued desire for sensual pleasures,
        one never again
        will lie in the womb.

不受觀念左右,
有戒德與具足見,
滅除了感官貪欲,
他不再投胎。
