Guide to the Bodhisattva's way of Life is a famous and universally loved poem for daily living that has inspired many generations of Buddhists and non-Buddhists. It reveals with poetic beauty and deep spiritual insight how to enter, make progress on, and complete the Buddhist path to enlightenment.

Composed in the 8th century by the famous Indian Buddhist master Shantideva, this new translation, made under the guidance of Geshe Kelsang, conveys the great lucidity and poetic beauty of the original, while preserving its full impact and spiritual insight. Reading these verses slowly, while contemplating their meaning, has a profoundly liberating effect on the mind. The poem invokes special positive states of mind, moves us from suffering and conflict to happiness and peace, and gradually introduces us to the entire Mahayana Buddhist path to enlightenment.

To explore the full effectiveness and profundity of this wonderful poem be sure to read Geshe Kelsang Gyatso's detailed commentary, Meaningful to Behold.

Through sincerely practising these instructions we can transform our ordinary, self-centred intentions into the supreme good heart, our ordinary, confused view into profound wisdom, and our ordinary way of life into a Bodhisattva’s way of life. In this way, we shall attain the supreme inner peace of enlightenment, which is the real meaning of our human life.
