What is a bodhisattva? a study

An impromptu study of bodhisattva, due to ignorance of most Americans and Europeans of lack of understanding of monastics ordained in the Mahayana traditions receiving additional ordinations as Bodhisattvas and the fact that Theravada monks have been also recognized as compassionate bodhisattas (Pali), it’s not all based on history or ideals the aren’t unreachable in our modern times!
Even the quality is sketchy and a bit messy this little dharma lesson is well written and illustrates clearly that monastics alive today emulate the bodhisattva ideal in their daily life.



I am a Bhikshuni ordained in Mahayana Chinese Buddhist tradition. I'm currently translating Vinaya sutras from the Chinese Mahayana Tripitaka.
