Description
 
A Guide to the Buddhist Path to Awakening
Written in India in the early eighth century AD, Santideva's Bodhicaryavatara takes as its subject the profound desire to become a Buddha and save all beings from suffering. The person who enacts such a a desire is a Bodhisattva. Santideva not only sets out what the Bodhisattva must do and become, he also invokes the intense feelings of aspiration which underlie such a commitment, using language which has inspired Buddhists from his time to the present.
Important as a manual of training among Mahayana Buddhists, especially in the Tibetan Buddhist tradition, the Bodhicaryavatara is still used by modern Buddhist teachers.

Bodhicaryavatara, Santideva, translated by Kate Crosby and Andrew Skilton, 191 pages, $11.95
