Description About the author Contents
Bodhisattvas, or "Enlightenment Beings," are dedicated to one thing: helping ordinary people on the path towards Enlightenment. The bodhisattvas know that they do not live alone; they are not apart from the rest of life. Seeking Enlightenment for themselves alone can never satisfy bodhisattvas as they witness the suffering that is all around. Their vision is to work endlessly in the service of living beings, helping them achieve Enlightenment.

This guide introduces a panoply of these figures, superheroes all, brilliant and beautiful, from the vast array that exists in the Buddhist tradition. Meet Tara, the rescuer; Manjusri, the Bodhisattva of Wisdom; Avalokiteshvara, the Bodhisattva of Compassion; and others.
