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.
