Shantideva's Entering the Conduct of a Bodhisatva with Commentary by Drukchen Padma Karpo Shantideva's Entering the Conduct of a Bodhisatva with Commentary by Drukchen Padma Karpo

Features Shantideva's famous text Bodhisatvacaryavatara or "Entering the Bodhisatva Conduct", one of the favorite texts amongst followers of Buddhism. It is very popular because it presents a completely selfless view of how to live one’s life, which many have found very inspiring. Therefore, several translations of it have been made into English and other languages.  The text is in very beautiful but terse verse, making it hard at times for the reader to understand. Therefore, Indian and Tibetan masters wrote commentaries to clarify its meaning.  Many of them are long and hard to read, so have not been translated for Westerners.  However, there is a very nice commentary by the great Tibetan author Padma Karpo, which takes the approach of inserting sufficient words into the text that its meaning is clarified while not adding so many words that they detract from the original.  The book features the complete text of Shantideva set up for recitation and the text with commentary set up for study.  Introduction, translation, ample footnotes, glossary, and book design by Tony Duff.
