Short Paragraph on Bodhisattva

Advertisements:

 


A Bodhisattva is one who having attained the state of purification and emancipation, refuses to enter Nirvana and gain salvation for himself, out of devoted love for those who still remain behind and a consuming zeal to help them.

He postpones his own entrance into perfect bliss because his sense of spiritual owners with others leads him to prefer to wait with them and lovingly serve them until all are ready to enter together.

He feels that his own salvation will be imperfect and even impossible so long as any living being remains unsaved.
