Buddha Quote

Monday July 13, 2020

Vow
Bodhisattvas were once ordinary human beings like us but they
have hearts of gold. They vowed with all their hearts to help all
sentient beings be released from their sufferings. In that sense,
they were great human beings. Most of us aren't yet great human
beings. We might become so in this life-or we might take many
more lifetimes. And most of us haven't got the commitment to vow
great vows like the Bodhisattvas because much as we would like to
vow great vows, we know we might have great difficulties in
living up to them. Even simple promises we make to friends we
sometimes fail to keep, much less be keeping vows to all beings.
Do we stop here? No. Be realistic. First promise yourself what
you ought to, in other words, vow to be your personal
Bodhisattva. Convinced that you can take good care of your
spirituality, vow simple vows that encompass some other living
beings into your Compassion. You might not meet up to your vows
at first. It is fine. Renew your vows from time to time. As your
Compassion and Wisdom grows, your Vows will grow to be greater
and greater and one day, they will encompass all. This might very
well be how ordinary beings eventually become great
Bodhisattvas. Why not start becoming a Bodhisattva today?
Afterall, it's going to be a long journey, might as well start
now!
