Shantideva's Bodhisattvacharyavatara ... thors/Shan\

"Engaging in the Conduct of the Bodhisattvas" by the Indian Buddhist saint
Shantideva is one of the most important classics of Mahayana Buddhism. When
asked to name a single book that encapsulates the Buddhist path, His Holiness
the Dalai Lama recommends this great work because it is intellectually profound,
poetically beautiful, and designed for study and practice. This text is part of
the core curriculum of Tibetan Buddhist monastic colleges.

The first volume of this beautifully produced set contains the core text by
Shantideva. Also known as the root verses, it is an inspiring and lyrical poem
of one thousand stanzas which is provided here in both the English and Tibetan
languages. The companion volume contains an English translation of a famous
commentary by the great Sakya scholar Sazang Mati Panchen, which provides both a
concise overview of Buddhist philosophy, and a clear verse-by-verse commentary.
A foreword by His Holiness Sakya Trizin guides the reader to the heart of the
work, which is the development of the resolve to cultivate wisdom and compassion
in order to attain enlightenment for the benefit of all beings. Both texts are
translated from the Tibetan by Venerable Lama Kalsang Gyaltsen and Ani Kunga

Text from the Front Cover:
However long space abides,
However long beings abide,
That long may I abide
To dispel the suffering of beings.

May the Doctrine,
The sole medicine for beings' suffering and
The source of every happiness,
Endure for long with honor and veneration.
