Though they are beyond all worldly matters, these Bodhisattvas do not leave the world. They act for the sake of all beings, unblemished by its defects. As a lotus will grow in the midst of muddy water, not being polluted by the water’s blemishes, these Noble Ones are born in the world unpolluted by any worldly phenomena.
