“Thus, through the merit I have collected
From all these virtuous actions,
May the suffering of every living being
Be brought completely to an end”
~Guide to the Bodhisattva’s Way of Life. 3:7

In this Series we will begin exploring the first two chapters of Guide to the Bodhisattva’s Way of Life, one of the most famous texts in all of Mahayana Buddhism.

The Guide’s author was Shantideva, an unconventional Buddhist master who lived in India during the 8th century. Though written long ago, this work is just as relevant today as it was back then. It presents profound and practical guidance about how to live a meaningful life and be a friend to the world.
