Shantideva’s beautiful and inspiring text may be deceptively simple but His Holiness Dalai Lama says it is so important that he reads chapters of it every morning and his favourite prayer comes from these wonderful words. Composed more than a thousand years ago, this text is still widely regarded as the most authentic and complete guide for the practitioner aspiring towards the attainment of enlightenment for the benefit of all beings. It teaches how to develop the precious mind of enlightenment (bodhicitta), and how to maintain it through the practice of the perfections. It is the basis of the Mayahana Path and a perfect motivation for all further study and practice.
The package includes teachings from Geshe Tashi Tsering as well as tutorials with his assistant teacher, Geshe Lobsang Jamyang. The subject was taught in two parts with the profound chapter on the perfection of wisdom taught in its own three-week module.
