Description
 
Written in India in the early 8th century AD, Santideva's "Bodhicaryavatara" is one of the most popular accounts of the Buddhist spiritual path. It is an expression of Asian spiritual and philosophical thought and has shaped the development of Indian and Tibetan Buddhism. In the "Bodhicaryavatara", the reader will find the basis for Buddhist teachings of non-violence, tolerance and compassion and, through uplifting and challenging verses, an original depiction of the training needed to live a compassionate life for the well-being of the world. This is a hardback edition of the popular translation of this classic by Kate Crosby and Andrew Skilton. It contains detailed annotations explaining allusions and technical references. The introductions set Santideva's work in context and clearly explain its structure.
