That is why you have bodhisattvas, who reach the brink of nirvana, and stop and come back and save the rest of us. Bill Murray is the bodhisattva. He is not going to abandon the world. On the contrary, he is released back into the world to save it." Wow. So can anyone (a newspaper reporter?) be a bodhisattva?
"I would call that a Napoleon complex," Dr. Zito said with a sniff. "There is only one bodhisattva, and that is the Dalai Lama."

I guess my question is why is the Dalai Lama thought of as the ONLY bodhisattva?
What's the Napoleon complex?
I thought the world was filled with bodhisattvas at this time.
very curious.....curiouser & curiouser....
