A few days ago there was an inquiry about "Bodhisattva."
HPB in THEOSOPHICAL GLOSSARY, p 59 says
"...he whose essence (sattva) has become intelligence (Bodhi);
those who need but one more incarnation to become perfect
i.e. entitled to Nirvana.
This, as applied to "Manushi" (terrestrial) Buddhas.
In a metaphysical sense "Bodhisattva" is a title given to the
Of the celestial Dhyani Buddhas." Glos p. 59
