The Bodhisattva

is like the mightiest of warriors; but his enemies are not common foes of flesh and bone.
His fight is with the inner delusions, the afflictions of self-cherishing and ego grasping. Those most terrible of demons that catch living beings in the snare of confusion and cause them forever to wander in pain, frustration and sorrow.
His mission is to harm ignorance and delusion, never living beings. These he looks upon with kindness, patience and empathy.
Cherishing them like a mother cherishes her only child, he is the real hero, calmly facing any hardship in order to bring peace, happiness and liberation to the world.
The Thirteenth Dalai Lama
