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.

为了解脱、获得宁静,
善达目标者当如此行:
能干、端正、直接、
易教、温和、不自满、
知足、易养、
少管事、生活简朴、
诸根寂静、技能完善、
谦虚、对供养者不贪。

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

不做任何
事后受智者指责之事。

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.
 

这样想: 喜乐、平安,
愿一切众生心有喜乐。
一切众生,
        无论软弱、强壮、
        长、大、
        中等、短小、
        精细、粗显、
        可见、不可见、
        远、近、
        已出生的、将投生的:
愿一切众生心有喜乐。

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

愿人们不相互欺骗、
不鄙视任何地方的任何人,
不以怒意、敌意,
愿他人受苦。

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.

如一位母亲
舍命保护亲子、独子,
他更应对一切众生
长养无量之心。
以对全宇宙的善意,
长养无量之心:
        自上、自下、周遭,
        无障碍、无敌意、无恨意。
        无论站、行、
        坐、卧,
        凡清醒时,
他应当确立此念。
这称为即时即地的
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.

不受观念左右,
有戒德与具足见,
灭除了感官贪欲,
他不再投胎。
