The first English translation of this traditional commentary on Shantideva's classic work. The celebrated master Patrul Rinpoche, author of the Words of My Perfect Teacher, devoted his whole life to the practice and teachings of the Bodhicharyavatara. It is said that while traveling all over the East of Tibet he expounded it more than one hundred times, sometimes in detailed courses lasting many months. Kunzang Pelden was one of his closest disciples and this commentary is a compilation of the extensive notes he took during a six-month teaching given by Patrul Rinpoche at Dzogchen Monastery.
"What a tremendous blessing and joy it is that Khenpo Kunpel's renowned commentary of the Bodhicharyavatara, based on the definitive oral instructions of the great saint and master of compassion Patrul Rinpoche, is now available in such a fluent and authoritative translation. This is a modern classic for our times - an exceptionally clear and comprehensive guide to Shantideva's timeless verses, an encylopedic treasury of Buddhist wisdom, and an inspiring companion for all who seek to follow the compassionate path of the bodhisattvas." Sogyal Rinpoche.
"This is a must-have, must-read, must-contemplate, and must-follow book for those who wish to exercise the privilege of being heir to Shakyamuni Buddha's unique heritage." Dzongsar Jamyang Khyentse Rinpoche.
