Quotes {292} ~ Nobility Is The Aspiration To Manifest Glory For The Benefit Of Others

“Nobility is the aspiration to manifest glory for the benefit of others. Nobility is using whatever abilities we have in service of others. Nobility is seeking to fulfill our in-born human potential, and to develop all our in-born human qualities. In Buddhism, nobility—or heroism—is a key aspect of enlightenment. Mahayana Buddhism often describes its ideal, the bodhisattva, in terms of ‘the noble virtues.’ The Tibetan translation of ‘bodhisattva’ is chang chub sem pa, which means ‘enlightened hero.” ~ David Chapman
