Verse IV.57 Variations

च्युतिं गर्भाक्रान्तिं जननपितृवेश्मप्रविशनं रतिक्रीडारण्यप्रविचरणमारप्रमथनम्
महाबोधिप्राप्तिं प्रशमपुरमार्गप्रणयनं निदर्श्याधन्यानां नयनपथम् अभ्येति न मुनिः
E. H. Johnston as input by the University of the West.[1]
cyutiṃ garbhākrāntiṃ jananapitṛveśmapraviśanaṃ ratikrīḍāraṇyapravicaraṇamārapramathanam
mahābodhiprāptiṃ praśamapuramārgapraṇayanaṃ nidarśyādhanyānāṃ nayanapatham abhyeti na muniḥ
E. H. Johnston as input by the University of the West.[2]
འཕོ་དང་ལྷུམས་འཇུག་བལྟམས་དང་ཡབ་ཀྱི་ཁབ་གཤེགས་དང་། །
དགེས་རོལ་པ་དང་དབན་པར་སྤྱོད་དང་བདུད་བཅོམ་དང་། །
བྱང་ཆུབ་ཆེ་བརྙེས་ཞི་བའི་གྲོང་དུ་ལམ་སྟོན་དག །
བསྟན་ནས་ཐུབ་པ་སྐལ་མེད་མིག་གི་ལམ་མི་འགྱུར། །
Descending [from Tuṣita], entering into a womb, being born, arriving at his father’s palace,
Engaging in amorous sports, living in the forest, vanquishing Māra,
Attaining great awakening, and teaching the path to the city of peace—
Displaying [such feats], the sage does not reach the sight of those who do not thrive [through virtue].
Le départ [de Tuṣita], l’entrée dans la matrice, la naissance,
l’arrivée au palais de son père,
Les jeux de l’amour, la quête solitaire, le triomphe sur Māra,
L’obtention de l’Éveil le plus grand
et l’art de guider sur la voie de la paix
Quand il eut tout montré, le Sage disparut
de la vue des êtres infortunés.

།མི་སྣང་བ་ལས་ནི། འཕོ་དང་ལྷུམས་འཇུག་བལྟམས་དང་ཡབ་ཀྱི་ཁབ་གཤེགས་དང་། །{br}དགྱེས་རོལ་པ་དང་དབེན་པར་སྤྱོད་དང་བདུད་བཅོམ་དང་། །བྱང་ཆུབ་ཆེ་བརྙེས་ཞི་བའི་གྲོང་ཁྱེར་ལམ་སྟོན་དག །བསྟན་ནས་ཐུབ་པ་སྐལ་མེད་མིག་གི་ལམ་མི་འགྱུར།

Other English translations[edit]

Obermiller (1931) [5]
Manifesting the descent from Tuṣita, the entrance into the womb,
Birth, and the arrival at bis father’s palace,
His merry life (amongst noble women),
His existence in solitude, the victory over the Evil One,
The attainment of Supreme Enlightenment,
And the teaching of the Path that leads to the city of Peace,
The Lord is inaccessible to the eyes of the unworthy.
Takasaki (1966) [6]
Descent from [the Tuṣita], entrance in the womb,
Birth, and the arrival at his father's palace,
Merry life [in the harem], wandering in solitude,
The victory over the Evil One,
The attainment of the Supreme Enlightenment,
And the teaching of the Path leading to the city of Peace,
The Buddha, though demonstrating such events,
Does not come to the eye-sight of those who are unhappy.
Fuchs (2000) [7]
He moves from [Tushita] and enters the womb, gets born, and goes
to his father's palace.
He enjoys amusement and then seeks solitude, undergoes austerity,
and defeats all evils.
[In Bodhgaya] he finds great enlightenment and shows the path to
the citadel of peace.
The Muni, having shown [these deeds}, becomes invisible to those
of no karmic fortune.
