Never abandon living beings by crossing over entirely into the expanse of the absolute, by rejecting or negating relativity. These Bodhisattvas do not become liberated from life, nor do they pursue any form of separate self-realization. They direct an ecstatic flood of love and friendliness toward all, connecting their mind streams as intimately with all beings as with their most cherished family members and beloved friends. This astonishing spiritual feat frees the Bodhisattvas from every impure intention of harming, denigrating, abandoning or even merely ignoring others.
From the Prajnaparamita Sutra in 8000 Lines translated by Lex Hixon
