The brave bodhisattva’s messianic resolve
For beings consists both of the desire for
Pleasant results for them in future lives and
Of the desire to get them engaged in virtue just in this life,
As well as of the desire for perfect enlightenment;
On all stages, the resolve is progressively pure.
These geniuses, on all stages,
Adopt all beings with their vow,
With their great equanimity,
With their unexcelled mastery,
And with their incomparable spiritual leadership.
In the end the spiritual genius achieves perfect equanimity,
Purification of consciousness, and awareness,
Impeccable skill in developing beings (spiritually),
Great power, physical perfection (e.g. speech),
Skill in manifestation, and true consecration.
