Are You A Bodhisattva? Let

A 30-question quiz to determine the dominant virtue you may possess as a Bodhisattva, a practitioner of Buddhism based on the Nichiren/Soka Gakkai tradition of faith, practice, and study. IF you disagree with the results, just remember that the author is working out the bugs, ok practically has no clue yet about logic statements, what-if-then, techno-geek stuff. Consider this a work-in-progress. Really, we're all works-in-progress when it comes to life. . . Please excuse my silly if sometimes caustic humor.
