Clairvoyant bodhisattvas

Some say that, as bodhisattvas have clairvoyant powers, there is no need for them to have patience, because they would already know what to do. Their developed clairvoyance would perfectly inform them what should be done, and what should be avoided. However, bodhisattvas are not yet perfect; they are not yet buddhas.
There would be no perfection of patience if bodhisattvas were already faultless but we already know that they are still practicing the six perfections. In addition to that, even buddhas require certain levels of patience to witness the fruition of their great deeds that they have set in motion. This is also dharma! ~ Domo Geshe Rinpoche ~~~


The precursors of inner senses are present in all beings, however, only in the higher functioning realms do they become the actual senses. A premature stimulation will create craving for power, another form of worldly religions goal.
