Treasured by Buddhists of all traditions, Shantideva's Way of the Bodhisattva (Bodhicharyā vatā ra) is a guide to cultivating the mind of enlightenment, and to generating the qualities of love, compassion, generosity, and patience. 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 book and audio-CD edition offers a new way to encounter the beauty and profundity of Shantideva's verses. Included is a complete reading of The Way of the Bodhisattva by Wulstan Fletcher, one of the members of the Padmakra Translation Group. A sixty-four-page booklet is also included, with a helpful introduction to The Way of the Bodhisattva and a short biography of Shantideva.

3 CDs and a 64-page booklet
