“People who realize Samantabhadra do not think, “Now that I’m enlightened, my work is done.” On the contrary, such people have tremendous concern and work ceaselessly for the benefit of all living beings. They radiate emanations in order to inspire and guide others to realize their innate nature. The source of these emanations is loving-kindness, compassion, and wisdom. This means that the Samantabhadra state is synonymous with bodhichitta.”
