Another translation with commentary:

May all seek, find and follow the Path of selflessness.

Not sure why this thread is in the Vajrayana area, this text is just plain Mahayana.

There is a Dzogchen text with the same title or called the Prayer of Samantabhadra.

Yes but it's practiced heavily in Vajrayana. I am unaware of non-Tibetan traditions that practice the prayer by itself, do they?

And yeah I'm familiar with the "other Samantabhadra".;)

Sure, in China, Japan, Korea the verse section is recited alone or as part of bodhisattva practices, like the link from BuddhaNet above.

I didn't realize it was recited commonly by itself elsewhere, thanks!
