About DDM

Bodhisattva's Actions

How does one attain the Buddhahood? The Bodhi-mind comes first.

What is Bodhi-mind? First is to benefit others.

For the sake of benefitting sentient beings, one should not be afraid of pains and difficulties.

If sentient beings can leave suffering behind, we can endure the suffering, and take it peacefully.

One who aspires to learn and practice the Dharma can be called a bodhisattva.

The superior action of a bodhisattva lies in delivering sentient beings with compassion and wisdom.
