My Mom — The Bodhisattva
I woke up this morning and knew that I wanted to write about my mom since it is her birthday today. I get emailed daily quotes from Tricycle (Buddhist magazine) and this is the one that I received today:
It’s not enough just to know the definition of bodhisattva. What’s much more important is to study the actions of a bodhisattva and then to behave like one yourself.
— Kosho Uchiyama, “What Is a Bodhisattva?”
And I thought, “How appropriate that I would get this quote today, on my bodhisattva mom’s birthday!”
