Entering The Way of the Bodhisattva: A New Translation and Contemporary Guide of Shantideva by Khenpo David Karma Choephel
Entering The Way of the Bodhisattva: A New Translation of Shantideva by Khenpo David Karma Choephel


 
For well over a millennium, Shantideva’s guide to the bodhisattva’s path has been revered and studied as a manual for becoming a bodhisattva, someone who is dedicated to achieving enlightenment in order to benefit all beings. In this fresh and poetic translation, Khenpo David Karma Choephel communicates the power of Shantideva’s insights through careful attention to both the meaning and the rhythmic pulse of each stanza. The translation is followed by a chapter-by-chapter guide, which provides necessary context and practical advice.

Like the earth and the other elements,
Like space, may I always be
The ground, supporting in many ways
The lives of sentient beings.

Likewise in all ways for all beings
Out to the edges of space,
May I be, till all pass to nirvana,
What gives them sustenance.

--From Chapter III.
