Bodhisattva literally meaning 'heroes of enlightenment', are courageous individuals who dedicate their entire being towards a single goal, i.e., to bring about the welfare of all sentient beings. It is said in Northern Buddhist schools that there are both mortal and celestial Boddhisattva.

A mortal Boddhisattva is one who has manifested him on earth in human [manushi] form, in a series of incarnations, until such a time as he has acquired sufficient merit and enlightenment [bodhi-jnana] to receive Buddhahood.
