Publisher Description

Treasured by Buddhists of all traditions, Shantideva’s Way of the Bodhisattva

is a guide for anyone seeking to cultivate the mind of enlightenment and the qualities of love, compassion, patience, and generosity. Presented in the form of a personal meditation in verse, it outlines the path of the Bodhisattvas—those who renounce the peace of individual enlightenment, and vow to work for the liberation of all beings and to attain Buddhahood for their sake. This audio edition offers a new way to encounter the beauty and profundity of Shantideva’s verses, which are read by Wulstan Fletcher, a member of the Padmakara Translation Group.
