Bodhicitta (Buddha Mind), is a state of awakened, enlightened, illuminated state of mind. In Mahayanna Buddism, bodhicitta, which starts with the love, compassion, and the powerful intention to end suffering and bring happiness to all beings, is the defining component of the Buddha Mind. [1]

The development of a Bodhisattva is a consequence of the Enhanced Empathic Response that arises as a consequence of repeated Connection Experience

Bodhisattva's often write Connection Manuals to facilitate connection.

Speaking of Connection Manuals, one may have a strong designer to heal and emancipate humanity, but one may not have the training, discipline, fortitude, persistence, attention to detail, and communication technology necessary for the task. The author of The Cloud of Unknowing obviously attained Bodhicitta, but their efforts to provide a sensible and lucid manual failed.
