Take these vows and fulfill them.

P'ang

A bodhisattva is someone who has turned completely away from self-absorption and toward acting for the benefit of all beings.
So . . . to become a bodhisattva, simply let go of all self-concern and act with total concern for the well-being of others.
Here’s a great video that addresses this point: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FDSAAlrqAHM
May you be happy!

Herodotus

Buddha did it by sitting quietly, his mind freed from expectations, excepting what came to him. I can imagine no other path, nor any strictures or dogma that could be of help for you. When enlightenment becomes your goal it becomes unattainable.

Buddhaman

Study, contemplation, meditation, prayer of the mahayana path of Buddhism. Then one takes the vows from a qualified teacher and then one must attain the ten Bodhisattva Bhumis.

Prajna

There are three essential qualities:
1) Bodhi mind: the vow to attain Buddhahood.
2) Compassion: the compassion to liberate all sentient beings (which implies the delay of self-liberation).
3) Emptiness as skilful means: the wisdom of emptiness required for self and others-liberation and for long diligent practices.
