We have many wishes, but in the background always lurks a principal wish:
to achieve a high status, to achieve welfare, to get healthy, to get worldly knowledge, to entertain in some ways, to win a battle, to be saved by God and get immortality...our self is always the principal object of cherishing.

The principal wish of a Bodhisattva is to accomplish the happiness and welfare of all sentient beings, and in recognition of this supremely altruistic motivation a Bodhisattva is called a 'Great Being'.

The principal object of cherishing for Bodhisattvas is not their selves but always other beings.
