Bodhisattva vow

A Bodhisattva vows is found at the end of the Avatamsaka Sutra by Samantabhadra. In Guide to the Bodhisattva’s Way of Life, Shantideva explains that the Bodhisattva vow is taken with the following famous two verses from Sutra:

Just as all the previous Sugatas, the Buddhas
Generated the mind of enlightenment
And accomplished all the stages
Of the Bodhisattva training,
So will I too, for the sake of all beings,
Generate the mind of enlightenment
And accomplish all the stages
Of the Bodhisattva training.
