The 4 Noble Truths of a Bodhisattva




New Buddhism





1.     Bodhisattvas emerge.

2.     He, She or It is caused by distress.

3.     A bodhisattva ceases

4.    By ending distress.




1.     A particular bodhisattva emerges.

2.     If and when personal distress signals failure to perform a particular operation @best.

3.     A particular bodhisattva ends/demerges.

4.     If and when the cause of distress has been eliminated.



1.     The bodhisattva function activates

2.     If and when distress is signalled.

3.     The bodhisattva function deactivates

4.    If and when the distress signal ends.



  The metaphor Bodhisattva describes a life system’s innate or inherent, because essential, capacity to solve (particular) problems.

The (particular) problem, namely failure to perform a particular operation @ best, is signalled to consciousness (i.e. to a system’s states monitoring function) as the various intensities of discomfort, i.e. distress, suffering, anguish and so on.

Since the bodhisattva function applies itself to resolving particular problems of @-less-than-best operation, the bodhisattva function was previously iconised as a series of particular bodhisattvas.

The bodhisattva function terminates when a particular problem has been solved. Problem resolution is (self-) ‘rewarded’ either with the ending of distress or with the samma-sambuddho (i.e. the Eureka) experience.
