The Boddhisattva-sii are exemplary spiritual beings who perform their spiritual training not for their own good, but for the good of all beings in the Universe.
Thus they seek to transform themselves spiritually, first of all on them. If they don’t transform, they won’t be able to help anyone transform.
At the same time, they make spiritual efforts to help others and to train them in an ascending spiral of spiritual evolution more and more accelerated. They do this, however, in full respect and love of all beings in the Universe.
This doctrine is found especially in Tibet and is also related to the exceptional real legend (!) of the mythical realm of Shambala or Shangri-la.
