Dhyāni-Bodhisattva

A class of DHYANI-CHOHANS or celestial beings who emanate from DHYANI-BUDDHAS, also called the Bodhisattvas of the Celestial Realms. There are seven Dhyani-Bodhisattvas, each one governing a globe of a planetary CHAIN. One of their functions is to continue the work of a human Buddha (or Manushya Buddha) after the latter’s death, until the next Buddha appears. They are the prototypes of the Super-Terrestrial-Bodhisattvas, who watch over the root races. (See HIERARCHY; CHAIN, PLANETARY.)
