The Way of the Bodhisattva : A Translation of the Bodhicharyavatara
The Bodhicharyavatara (literally, 'An Entry into the Activities of Enlightenment') is one of the masterworks of Buddhist thought. Written in eighth-century India, it outlines the path of the bodhisattvas, those spiritual aspirants who vow to cultivate wisdom and forgo complete enlightenment in order to help others. This work quickly became a major text of Tibetan Buddhism and is offered here in a highly accessible and poetic translation from the Tibetan.
