It may seem like an unattainable ideal, but you can start right now as a bodhisattva-in-training. All you need is the aspiration to put others first.

Emptiness and interdependence—they’re more than concepts; they’re key to realizing real-world benefits in our lives. His Holiness The Karmapa helps us put our wisdom into practice.
The bodhisattva’s commitment to the benefit of others manifests in the practice of the six perfections, the 17th Karmapa explains.
