Definition

Bodhicitta is the intention to achieve omniscient Buddhahood so that one may benefit infinite sentient beings. One who has bodhicitta as the primary motivation for all of his or her activities is called a bodhisattva.

Bodhicitta is the union of compassion and wisdom.

Bodhicitta also means the aim to, on the one hand, bring happiness to all sentient beings, and on the other, to relieve them of suffering.

The term bodhicitta in its most complete sense would combine both:

  • the arising of spontaneous and limitless compassion for all sentient beings, and
  • the falling away of the attachment to the illusion of an inherently existent self.
  • May bodhicitta, precious and sublime.
    Arise where it has not yet come to be;
    And where it has arisen may it never fail
    But grow and flourish ever more and more.
