Bodhisattvas’ (Compassion) Practices -32


If influenced by disturbing emotions, one points out another’s Bodhisattva’s faults, oneself  is diminished. Therefore, not speaking about the faults of those who have entered the Great Vehicle is the Bodhisattvas’ practice.

Modern Translation 

A Bodhisattva’s Daily Practice


A bodhisattva’s practice is not to speak about
    the faults of a person who has entered Mahayana,
Because, if under the power of disturbing emotions and attitudes,
We talk about the faults of others who are bodhisattvas,
We ourselves will degenerate.

 – 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…)
