Pratyeka is from Sanskrit, prati, meaning "towards, for"; eka, the numeral "one", thus meaning "for oneself," or "selfish." Buddha means "awakened." Thus, the term pratyeka buddha refers to someone who awakensby themselves, for themselves, as opposed to doing so out of compassion for others.
"We must make a complete differentiation between the Sravakas and Pratyeka Buddhas on one side, and Bodhisattvas on the other. The Sravakas and Pratyeka-Buddhas preoccupy themselves only with their particular perfection, without caring a bit for this poor suffering humanity. Obviously, the Pratyeka Buddhas and Sravakas can never incarnate The Gnostic Bible: The Sophia Unveiled. Only the Bodhisattvas who sacrifice themselves for humanity can incarnate . The sacred title of is legitimately attained only by those who have renounced all Nirvanic happiness for the love of this suffering humanity." — ,
