Bodhichitta
The whole idea of living in a balanced way to achieve enlightenment for all living beings is called Bodhichitta. Bodhi means awakened, chitta means heart, Bodhichitta is generally translated the awakened heart, meaning conscious compassion. Cultivating Bodhichitta means to develop a deep wish that all beings be free from suffering and attain enlightenment.
