Word of the Day
Friday, April 27, 2007
Bodhisattva (noun) – This is a Buddhist concept, actually; One who gives up the chance to achieve nirvana to save others – the person does this out of compassion (from Sanskrit)

Word in a Sentence: In Sandy Lender’s novel Choices Meant for Gods, the god Hrothmund gives up his life, and thus his chance at his seat in Paradise, mimicking the concept of Bodhisattva, to end the Second War and save the people of the continent of Onweald.

Your turn! Zen, anyone?

Will I achieve Bodhisattva by nominating Sandy for an award? I hope so cause this word really has my mind very boggled today!

Only if it keeps you from achieving nirvana. Good Heavens, Child, what have you done? Now I'm doubly intrigued!
