Reputation, profit, wealth, beauty, fame, food, and sleep are things that worldly people like. When one is defiled by worldly dharmas, one cannot achieve transcendental dharma. When worldly dharmas prevail, transcendental dharma seems insignificant.

A few verses from the 84000 project's new Gandavyuha Sutra on the nature of a bodhisattva. They title this free to all sutra, the Stem Array:

“Whatever worldly good fortune there is
That occurs within the realms of beings,
The resolute ones renounce it all,
And they remain in the Buddha’s good fortune.

“The world remains fruitless,
Continuously in bondage.
Those whose conduct is free from attachment
Are continuously fixed on benefiting beings.

“Their unequaled conduct
Is inconceivable for all beings.
They who think of the world’s happiness
Bring an end to suffering.

“They have compassion for the whole world
And have the pure wisdom of enlightenment.
They are a light for the world
And bring liberation to the entire world.”

Forgot to add the link to the new translation, which is only in e-book formats so far.
