Engaged Bodhichitta Verse - Translation

Here's the translation of this famous 55:th verse from the tenth chapter of Shantideva's Bodhisattva way of life. I'm using the translation by Alex Berzin:

(55) For as long as space remains,
And for as long as wandering beings remain,
May I too remain for that long,
Dispelling the sufferings of wandering beings.

You could actually take this translation -- or any of the other ones -- and compare it with the actual Tibetan text, for example the version available from ACIP.

We will actually look through this text next, so you will learn how to navigate around it.

I really love this - do you have this available in Tibetan at all? I'd love to see what it looks like.
