“In the Buddhist tradition, the Bodhisattva is a person with an awakened Buddha nature.
A Bodhisattva vows to help to waken every being in the Universe, realizing that
there is only one consciousness. To awaken ones true self, one must awaken all beings.
There are enumerable sentient beings in the Universe, I vow to help them all to awaken.
My imperfections are inexhaustible, I vow to overcome them all.
The Dharma is unknowable, I vow to know it.
The way of awakening is unattainable, I vow to obtain it.”
