[Speaking] of Guāndì [i.e. Guānyǔ or Guāngōng]… [when with] wealth [and] honour, [he did] not lust, [when with] poverty [and] lowliness, [he remained] unchanged [i.e. steadfast, a] great man [of character, when facing] mighty forces, never submitted… [Having] taken refuge [through Great Master] Zhìzhě, [he] aspired [to] be Samghārama [Bodhisattva, to] protect [and] uphold [the] Buddha’s teachings.
