Who is the highest ruler/king on this earth? Politician? /King?


“Bodhicitta may be viewed as having different levels: one useful classification is that given by Patrul Rinpoche in his Words of My Perfect Teacher. He states that the lowest level is the way of the King, who primarily seeks his own benefit but who recognizes that his benefit depends crucially on that of his kingdom and his subjects. The middle level is the path of the boatman, who ferries his passengers across the river and simultaneously, of course, ferries himself as well. The highest level is that of the shepherd, who makes sure that all his sheep arrive safely ahead of him and places their welfare above his own.”

For anyone who claim they are Buddhist or practitioner of Buddha dharma teachings or claim to be Buddhist country:
they shall reflect that this teachings deeply. Especially those rulers who are misused of Buddha dharma teaching to silence their people minds or to make them scare of voicing disagreement in the midst of injustice.

These rulers shall realized that the teaching mentioned above.
The lowest Boddicita is usually referred to those rulers who are only interested to hold on to the power and show their kindness in order to control their people.


Even the shepherd, who makes sure that all his sheep arrive safely ahead of him and places their welfare above his own.

A King, president is nothing than a shepherd whose heart is selfless.
