द्वितीयां संक्रमन्तानां प्रथमतो ऽनुजायते ।
अरती बोधिसत्वानां भवेष्व् इति न संशयं ॥ ५ ॥

dvitīyāṃ saṃkramantānāṃ prathamato 'nujāyate |
aratī bodhisatvānāṃ bhaveṣv iti na saṃśayaṃ || 5 ||

“Now, in Bodhisattvas as they pass on into the second bhumi there is born first of all an aversion to all forms of existence. Of this there is no doubt. (5)
