In the whole 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's presentation of the methods to harmonize one's own way of life with the Bodhisattva's ideal begins with a praise of the spirit of awakening, the Bodhisattva's altruistic aspiration to achieve enlightenment for the sake of all beings. In the chapters that follow, Santideva inspires the reader to cultivate each og he six perfections that provide the basis for the Boddhisattva way of life- generosity, ethics, patience , zeal , meditative concentration and wisdom.
