The Bodhisattvacaryavatara, composed by the great 8th century Indian master and poet Shantideva, is one of the most celebrated expositions in classical Indian literature of the bodhisattva path of Mahayana Buddhism. The text is written in verse and has ten chapters. It deals extensively with the stages of training one’s mind in the generation of bodhicitta, the altruistic aspiration to attain enlightenment for the benefit of all beings, and with the essential practices of a bodhisattva’s conduct and way of life, pervaded by the qualities of love, compassion, generosity and patience.
The Venerable Khenpo Dr Ngawang Jorden has received numerous teachings from H.H. the 14th Dalai Lama, H.H. the Sakya Trizin, the late Chogay Rinpoche, Khenchen Appey Rinpoche and many other great masters.
