The Way of the Bodhisattva
(Bodhicaryavatara), Revised Edition (Shambhala Classics)
A treasured guide for Buddhists, The Way of the Bodhisattva teaches how to cultivate the mind of enlightenment and embody compassion, love, generosity, and patience. Written as a personal meditation in verse, this text has been studied, practiced, and expounded upon for centuries, outlining the path of Bodhisattvas who vow to attain buddhahood and work for the liberation of all beings. This version is a revised translation with a foreword by the Dalai Lama, a new preface, introduction, and commentary by Nyingma master Kunzang Pelden.
