–noun (from Buddhism)
A person who has attained prajna (Enlightenment), but who postpones Nirvana in order to help others to attain Enlightenment.
Then again, sometimes, you just meet these people unexpectedly in your working day without realizing it. How we react tells us more about ourselves than the Bodhisattva.
That said, with all the waves of negativity in the world today, may you encounter your own Bodhisattva… and enjoy your day.
Oh, and don’t worry…The stress will wait for you until later. But if you should happen to attain your own prajna, be sure to share it with others, won’t you? And somehow, when the stress resumes, you’ll be far better prepared to control it rather than vice versa.
Enjoy the present (and presence) of Bodhisattva!
