AbstractThe famous and universally loved poem for daily living has inspired many generations of Buddhists and non-Buddhists since it was first composed in the 8th century by Shantideva. The new translation,made under the guidance of Geshe Kelsang Gyatso,conveys the great lucidity and poetic beauty of the original,while preserving its full impact and spiritual insight.

Reading the 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.

An inspirational guide to a life of great meaning and altruism. A beautiful new translation of this universally loved poem. Conveys the poetic beauty of the original,while preserving its full impact and spiritual insight. The book will appeal strongly to those with an interest in religious and inspirational poetry and literature.
