Many people have the compassionate wish to benefit others, but few understand
how to effectively accomplish this in daily life. Bodhisattvas are friends of
the world, who have such strong compassion they are able to transform all their
daily activities into a means to benefit others.
The path of the Bodhisattva was exquisitely explained in the universally
loved poem Guide to the Bodhisattva's Way of Life by the 8th century master
Shantideva. With this commentary by Geshe Kelsang, the full effectiveness and
profundity of this wonderful poem are revealed in full and made applicable to
How to practice to Bodhisattva's way of life and how to engage in the actual
methods that lead to full enlightenment.
