Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In the whole of the Tibetan Buddhist tradition there is no single treatise more deeply revered or widely practiced than A Guide to the Bodhisattva Way of Life. Composed in the eighth century by the Indian Bodhisattva Santideva, it became an instant classic in the curricula of the Buddhist monastic universities of India, and its renown has grown ever since. Santideva presents methods to harmonize one's life with the Bodhisattva ideal and inspires the reader to cultivate the perfections of the Bodhisattva--generosity, ethics, patience, zeal, meditative concentration and wisdom.

Synopsis:

Composed in India in the eighth century, this work is an outstanding presentation of the Six Perfections, by which one may harmonize one's own life with the Bodhisattva ideal. It became an instant classic in the curricula of the Buddhist monastic universities of India, and its renown has grown ever since. This new translation marks the first time the Sanskrit original and the canonical Tibetan can be compared in a single work.

Synopsis:

Offers insight upon insight as to the way a life should be led.'--Library Journal

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. [145]-151).
