|+||'''Bodhichitta in action''' (Tib. འཇུག་པ་སེམས་བསྐྱེད་, [[Wyl.]] ''‘jug pa sems bskyed'') - one of the two subdivisions of [[relative bodhichitta]], it is the enactment of the [[wish to benefit of others]] more than your[[self]]. It is explained as pledging oneself (see [[vows]], [[Pranidhana]] and [[Aspirational prayer]]) to the [[cause]] of [[enlightenment]] (see [[Anuttarasamyaksambodhi]]) by engaging in the [[six paramitas]] (see [[Ten Paramitas]]). [[Shantideva]] compares it to embarking upon a journey having developed a wish to do so.|
