Note on the transliteration:
The transliteration system of the BP/TLB is based on the Unicode/UTF-8 system. However, there may be difficulties with some of the letters – particularly on PC/Windows-based systems, but not so much on the Mac. We have chosen the most accepted older and traditional systems of transliteration against, e.g, Wylie for Tibetan, since with Unicode it is possible, in Sanskrit and Tibetan, etc., to represent one sound with one letter in almost all the cases (excepting Sanskrit and Tibetan aspirated letters, and Tibetan tsa, tsha, dza). We thus do not use the Wylie system which widely employs two letters for one sound (ng, ny, sh, zh etc.).
We ask you in particular to note the use of the ’ apostrophe and not the ' representing the avagrāha in Sanskrit, and most important the ’a-chuṅ in Tibetan. On the Mac the ’ is Alt-M.
If you cannot find the letters on your key-board, you may click on the link "Diacritica" to access it for your search.

§13 aviditā ca sā vedanā veditavyā |  na cānena vedanānirodhaḥ sākṣātkartavyaḥ | aparipūrṇeṣu buddhadharmeṣūbhe vedane notsraṣṭavye |  na ca durgatyupapannānāṃ satvānām antike mahākaruṇā notpādayitavyā |  tathā kariṣyāmo yathaiṣāṃ satvānām evam ayoniśonidhyaptyā vyādhim apaneṣyāmaḥ | 
何謂所受亦空  謂已曉了不覺諸痛 不盡於痛以取證際  如是二者為諸痛 長一切惡道已竟 近一切人興大悲哀  吾為眾人作自省法 觀以除其病 
是有疾菩薩以無所受而受諸受  未具佛法亦不滅受而取證也  設身有苦念惡趣眾生起大悲心  我既調伏亦當調伏一切眾生 但除其病 
有疾菩薩應無所受而受諸受  若於佛法未得圓滿 不應滅受而有所證  應離能受所受諸法 若苦觸身應愍險趣一切有情 發趣大悲除彼眾苦  有疾菩薩應作是念 既除己疾亦當除去有情諸疾 如是除去自他疾時

"The sick bodhisattva should recognize that sensation is ultimately nonsensation,  but he should not realize the cessation of sensation. Although both pleasure and pain are abandoned when the buddha-qualities are fully accomplished,  there is then no sacrifice of the great compassion for all living beings living in the bad migrations.  Thus, recognizing in his own suffering the infinite sufferings of these living beings, the bodhisattva correctly contemplates these living beings and resolves to cure all sicknesses.
