Shantideva’s Guide to the Bodhisattva’s Way of Life
Third section starts 6 February 2017
Many people have the compassionate wish to benefit others, but few understand how to accomplish this successfully in daily life. Bodhisattvas are friends of the world, who have such strong compassion that they are able to transform all their daily activities into ways of benefiting others.
The path of the Bodhisattva was exquisitely set out in the universally loved poem Guide to the Bodhisattva’s Way of Life by the 8th century master Shantideva. With his commentary to the poem, Meaningful to Behold, Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche reveals in full the effectiveness and profundity of this extraordinary text and shows how it can be used as a practical handbook in the modern world by those wishing to follow a way of life characterised by greater empathy and compassion for others.
Kadam Neil will teach Shantideva’s poem and Venerable Geshe Kelsang’s commentary as part of the STTP.
