Seeing the futility of all the glory of this world ~ Gyelse Tokme Zangpo

Even though I may be famous and revered by all,
And as rich as Vaiśravaṇa, the god of wealth himself,
To see the futility of all the glory and riches of this world,
And to remain without conceit — this is the practice of all the bodhisattvas.
