Abstract: We give a characterization for totally geodesic embeddings between higher-rank irreducible bounded symmetric domains in terms of certain totally geodesic rank-1 symmetric subspaces. More explicitly, we prove that for two irreducible bounded symmetric domains $ \Omega _1,\Omega _2$ of rank at least 2, a holomorphic map $ F:\Omega _1\rightarrow \Omega _2$ is a totally geodesic embedding with respect to the Bergman metrics if $ F$ maps the minimal disks of $ \Omega _1$ into rank-1 characteristic symmetric subspaces of $ \Omega _2$. As a simple corollary, we obtain a much simpler proof for a theorem of Tsai which says that $ F$ is totally geodesic if $ F$ is proper and rank $ (\Omega _1)=\ $rank $ (\Omega _2)$.
