E. H. Johnston as input by the University of the West.[2]
ཇི་ལྟར་ས་ལས་སྐྱེ་བ་ཀུན། །
རྟོག་མེད་ས་ལ་བརྟེན་ནས་ནི། །
འཕེལ་དང་བརྟེན་དང་ཡངས་འགྱུར་ལྟར། །
Just as all that grows on the earth
Comes to grow, thrive, and expand
Through relying on the ground
That is without thoughts,
De même que tout ce qui naît de la terre
Prend appui sur la terre, qui n’a pas de pensées,
Pour croître, se renforcer et s’épanouir,

As all that is produced by the earth,
Being, unconsciously, supported by it,
Can thrive, show (its growth), and expand,
Takasaki (1966) [6]
Just as all plants,
Taking resort to the earth
Which has no searching thought,
Come to grow, thrive and expand;

Everything that grows from the earth
will increase and become firm and vast
on the support of its thought-free soil.
