As a mother would her ailing child ~ Gyelse Tokme Zangpo

Even if others whom I have cared for like children of my own,
Should turn upon me and treat me as an enemy,
To regard them only with special fondness and affection,
As a mother would her ailing child — this is the practice of all the bodhisattvas.
