Seido calls attention to various great and small examples of bodhisattva energy at work in the world, including Samantabadra as virtuous practitioner and how this is represented in recognizing those taking formal vows. The second half of the talk is dedicated to recently deceased great Zen master Thich Naht Hanh and the inspiring way he exemplified Jizo bodhisattva who brings the light of the dharma to the hell realms and protects women and children.
