Work of a Bodhisattva

In President Obama's Cairo speech he said:

"The Holy Quran teaches that whoever kills an innocent is as — it is as if he has killed all mankind. And the Holy Quran also says whoever saves a person, it is as if he has saved all mankind."

Which sounds like advice on the work of a Bodhisattva to me. And which person should the Bodhisattva save, to save all mankind? No need to look anywhere other than right where you are.

Video of Persident Obama's Cairo speech is also available on-line.

The Bodhisattva's thousand hands and eyes have plenty of work to do in scouring our own consciousness. No need to look anywhere else but right here!
