bhikkhuni
bodhisattva precepts

A Buddhist practitioner who vows to attain enlightenment, but also to be reborn in the world to rescue other beings instead of entering nirvana (complete release with no rebirth); aside from the traditional definition involving rebirth, it means a practitioner who vows to benefit others beings and not just achieve liberation for themselves. [Alt: bodhisatta, Pali]
