|A detail of the "Beautiful Bodhicitta"|
A person who has Bodhicitta (awakened mind) aspires to become enlightened for the benefit all beings, for their ultimate happiness and liberation. When a person reaches that level of unconditional love, compassion and understanding, he or she can then be called a Bodhisattva.

The Tibetan Drutsa script translates.....
“As a river to the sea,
as the sea to the clouds,
as clouds to the land,
So does Bodhicitta beautify this world.”
