Sale edition (previously titled Flash of Lightning in the Darkness of Night). His Holiness presents here a detailed manual of practical philosophy based on the Bodhicharyavatara by Shantideva. He explains and amplifies the text verse by verse, alluding throughout to the experience of daily life and showing how anyone can develop bodhichitta, the altruistic wish for happiness for the sake of others.

Compassion is the guiding principle of the bodhisattvas and to this end, they must renounce all self-centred goals and consider only the well-being of others. The bodhisattvas enemies are the ego, passion, and hatred; their weapons are generosity, patience, perseverence and wisdom. Taken from a commentary given by the Dalai Lama in the Dordogne, France in 1991 this book will surely become a standard work for all those who wish to make the bodhisattva ideal a living experience.

"Just like the great Indian master Shantideva, the Dalai Lama talks about human nature in simple and moving terms. He urges us to develop the potential we all have for love and kindness. Appealing to our everyday experience, he shows us how to become good hearted people and give our lives direction and meaning." Tulku Pema Wangyal.
