The Bodhisattva Vow and Korean Zen
During this talk, Robert Lockridge, a dharma teacher in the Kwan Um school of Korean Zen, describes the four vows for fulfilling the Bodhisattva ideal: “Sentient beings are numberless; we vow to save them all. Delusions are endless; we vow to cut through them all. The teachings are infinite; we vow to learn them all. The Buddha way is inconceivable; we vow to attain it.” A discussion of the application of the vows follows.
