Bodhisattva-caryāvatāra

Entering the Conduct of the Bodhisattvas

Text Section 253

Indian scholars such as Abhaya [’jigs med], Jñanakīrti [ye shes grags pa] and others taught that the development of bodhicitta by those who have reached the path of accumulation [tshogs lam] is bodhicitta of aspiration and that bodhicitta of application applies to those who have reached the path of application [sbyor lam] and more. These teachings derive from the practical experience of these masters and are not mere philosophical hairsplitting.
