Because of being occupied with the view of cause, ignorance, existence, thirst, and unreal mental constructions, it is called ‘living being’. However, the Bodhisattva still teaches the dharma to living beings in order to get rid of vices which originate from misunderstanding (viparyāsa-samutthita-kleśaprahāṇa), and he does not forget substances. Since he is devoid of a living being, and detached from a living being, he brings living beings to maturity. Thus the Bodhisattva brings living beings to maturity by the original purity”.
