Engaged bodhichitta

A mind of bodhichitta which, when focused on one's own individual not-yet-happening enlightenment – an imputation on the basis of the Buddha-nature factors of one's mental continuum – is committed to attaining that enlightenment by having taken bodhisattva vows and which then enters into the type of behavior that will bring one to enlightenment.
