1 Sara Di Diego = ""In Mahayana Buddhism, bodhisattva is the Sanskrit term for a being with bodhi (enlightenment). A bodhisattva is anyone who, motivated by great compassion, has generated bodhicitta, which is a spontaneous wish to attain buddhahood for the benefit of all sentient beings."Work Cited:https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bodhisattva"
2 Enakshi Ganguly = "“Buddhas and bodhisattvas suffer, too. The difference between them and us is that they know how to transform their suffering into joy and compassion. Like good organic gardeners, they do not discriminate in favor of the flowers or against the garbage. They know how to transform garbage into flowers. Don’t throw away your suffering. Touch your suffering, face it directly, and your joy will become deeper. You know that suffering and joy are both impermanent. Learn the art of cultivating joy.”— Thich Nhat Hanh"
