Bodhichitta in action (Tib. འཇུག་པ་སེམས་བསྐྱེད་, Wyl. ‘jug pa sems bskyed) - one of the two subdivisions of relative bodhichitta, it is the enactment of the wish to benefit of others. It is explained as pledging oneself to the cause of enlightenment by engaging in the six paramitas. Shantideva compares it to embarking upon a journey having developed a wish to do so.
