Bodhisattva (Compassion) Practices – 14


Even if someone broadcasts throughout the billion worlds all sorts of offensive remarks about one, speaking in turn of that person’s qualities with a loving mind is the Bodhisattvas’ practice.

Modern Translation


A bodhisattva’s practice is,
Even if someone were to publicize throughout the thousand,
   million, billion worlds
All kinds of unpleasant things about us,
To speak in return about his good qualities, with an attitude of love.

– The Berzin Archives Thirty-seven Bodhisattva Practices
(Bodhisattva  — In Tibetan Buddhism, a Bodhisattva is anyone who is motivated by compassion and seeks enlightenment not only for him/herself but also for everyone…)
