Ken McLeod continues his commentary on the 37 Practices of the Bodhisattva with the 17th verse. Watch the other videos here.

 

17
Even if your peers or subordinates,
Put you down to make themselves look better,
Treat them respectfully as you would your teacher:
Put them above you — this is the practice of a bodhisattva.

 

“We judge ourselves by our motives, and others by their actions.”
