Reintegration of the One and the Many.

Simon again:
>
>Malkioni saints remind me vaguely of the bodhisatva of Mahayana
>Buddhism, who chose not to enter nirvana in order to save others.

and Jose:
>
>This has the added advantage that in the RW some bodhisattvas have been
>worshipped as gods, something that happens in henotheist lands too.
>
>I take Saint to mean a human (or other mortal race) that has attained grace
>and still hangs on to help others reach Solace. That means that for some
>henotheists Orlanth, Ehilm and company were people in the far past who did

>great things and now are helping others.
