The Wonder of Wikipedia

Subhuti asked the Buddha: “What should one who wants to travel the Bodhisattva path keep in mind?”

The Buddha answered, “A Bodhisattva should keep this in mind: All creatures, whether they are born from the womb or hatched from the egg, whether they transform like butterflies or arise miraculously, whether they have a body or are purely spirits, whether they are capable of thought or not capable of thought: All of these I vow to help enter nirvana before I rest there myself!"
