The Bodhicharyávatara has been widely acclaimed and respected for more than one thousand years. It is studied and praised by all four schools of Tibetan Buddhism. – Tenzin Gyatso, HH the 14th Dalai Lama
Description of the root text:
“The thematic structure of this work is based on the six perfections of generosity, ethical discipline, patience, zeal, meditation, and wisdom, which provide the framework for the Bodhisattva’s path to enlightenment. The first three chapters discuss the benefits of bodhicitta, the Spirit of Awakening that motivates the Bodhisattva way of life, and explain the means of cultivating and sustaining this altruistic aspiration. Those topics lay the foundation of the perfection of generosity.” – from the introduction in A Guide to the Bodhisattva Way of Life, trans. Vesna A. Wallace.
