The practice of all the bodhisattvas is to strive with enthusiastic diligence —
The source of all good qualities — when working for the sake of all who live;
Seeing that even śrāvakas and pratyekabuddhas, who labour for themselves alone,
Exert themselves as if urgently trying to extinguish fires upon their heads.
