What does “Bodhisattva “mean? What does Arhat mean?

Bodhisattva is a Sanskrit word with two parts.  Bodhi means enlightenment, wisdom and the way.  Sattva means sentient being.  Bodhisattvas are motivated by great compassion towards all sentient beings and are committed to liberating all beings from suffering. Concurrently, Bodhisattvas develop themselves spiritually to reach enlightenment through practices such as giving, following precepts, endurance, diligence, meditation, and wisdom.  They may be regarded as Buddhas in training.
 
Arhats represent beings who are followers of Buddhism who have eradicated all defilement and have reached the level of enlightenment to be beyond the samsara process of rebirth.  They are considered worthy of receiving offerings from people and celestial beings.  However, they have not yet reached the full enlightenment worthy of to become a Buddha.
