For the Benefit of All Beings: A Commentary on the Way of the Bodhisattva

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Dalai Lama explains how to follow the spiritual path of the bodhisattva by commenting on a beloved Tibetan Buddhist text.

Many people consider the Dalai Lama to be a living embodiment of the spiritual ideal of the bodhisattva–someone who dedicates their life to freeing all beings from suffering and confusion. Here this beloved teacher presents a detailed manual of practical philosophy based on the best-known text of Mahayana Buddhism, The Way of the Bodhisattva (Bodhicharyavatara). He explains and amplifies the text, illuminating its message of putting others before oneself and showing how anyone can develop a truly “good heart.” This book was previously published under the title A Flash of Lightning in the Dark of Night.

About the Author

His Holiness the Dalai Lama, Tenzin Gyatso, was born in 1935 in the province of Amdo in eastern Tibet. When he was two years old he was recognized as the fourteenth in the line of Dalai Lamas, the spiritual masters who for three centuries had governed the country. After China invaded Tibet, the Dalai Lama took refuge in Northern India, where he has led and inspired the Tibetan community in exile.
