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.
