My understanding of Bodhisattvas

Recommended Posts

I have read in some Buddhist texts that Bodhisattvas postpone their realization inorder to help others.  This was a bit problematic for me to understand at that time.  Right now I feel that Bodhisattvas are those that have reached such levels of refinement that if they choose to, they could just revel in a blissful state and not have to come down and undertake actions at worldly levels.  But they seem to choose to come down from such high levels of refinement inorder just to help others.  Indeed they are noble, and their path is noble because they guide others to the light they discovered.
