One of the instructors at my school has this posted on the wall of his office:

I've been curious to find out what it says, but unfortunately, after transcribing the first words of the first line (།འཇིག་རྟེན་བདེ་བ་ཇེ་) the string of letters seems to be ungoogleable. Can any of you guys translate it, or point out a website where I might get a translation for free?

I haven't 'done' Tibetan in nearly thirty years, but this still struck me as grammatically, orthographically? phonetically? and stylistically weird, not-normal. But I think the gist is pretty clear:

'Whatever amount of happiness in the world,
That all has arisen from desiring happiness for others;
Whatever amount of suffering in the world
That all has arisen from desiring happiness for oneself'.

I have to say Tibetan really does have a beautiful script/alphabet.
