佛子行三十七頌

The Thirty-Seven Practices of the Bodhisattva

By Ngulchu Gyalsas Thogmed Zangpo (1295 – 1369)

 

南無觀世音菩薩!

Homage to Avalokiteshvara

 

雖見諸法無來去,唯一勤行利眾生,上師觀自在尊前,恆以三業恭敬禮。

I always respectfully prostrate through my three doors

to the Supreme Guru and protector Lokeshvara,

who although seeing all phenomena as a devoid of coming and going,

Endeavours one-pointedly to benefit sentient beings.

 

正等覺佛利樂源,從修正法而出生,修法復依明行要,故當宣說佛子行。

The perfect Buddhas, source of benefit and happiness,

arise from accomplishing the sublime Dharma.

And as that accomplishment depends on knowing the Dharma practices,

I will explain the Bodhisattva’s practices.
