Description
 
This new translation of one of the most important texts of Mahayana Buddhism makes a clear case for why we should strive energetically to achieve the unsurpassable state of enlightenment for the sake of all sentient beings, and having formed that intention, how we should practice the bodhisattva path.

A comprehensive description of the bodhisattva's view, meditation, and enlightened activities. Bodhisattvas are beings who, out of vast love for all sentient beings, have dedicated themselves to the task of becoming fully awakened buddhas, capable of helping all beings in innumerable and vast ways to become enlightened themselves. To fully awaken requires great generosity, patience, energy, discipline, concentration, and wisdom, but we all have the potential to develop these qualities since we have the seed of buddhahood. The classic verses of the Ornament of the Great Vehicle Sutras are accompanied by two renowned Tibetan commentaries, each translated for the first time in a modern language. The commentaries draw on the tremendous richness of the Indo-Tibetan tradition, discussing the message of the verses with lucid engagement.

Ornament of the Great Vehicle Sutras: Maitreya's Mahayanasutralamkara with Commentaries by Khenpo Shenga and Ju Mipham , Snow Lion, Hardcover, 1021 pages, $69.95
