For well over a millennium, Shantideva’s guide to the bodhisattva’s path has been revered and studied as a manual for becoming a bodhisattva, someone who is dedicated to achieving enlightenment in order to benefit all beings. In this fresh and poetic translation, Khenpo David Karma Choephel communicates the power of Shantideva’s insights through careful attention to both the meaning and the rhythmic pulse of each stanza. The translation is followed by a chapter-by-chapter guide, which provides necessary context and practical advice.

"Shantideva’s Way of the Bodhisattva gives clear and inspiring teachings on developing loving-kindness, compassion, and bodhichitta. Not only is studying it important for students of the Mahayana, it can also help anyone develop a good heart and become a better person. I am sure that this new translation and short guide by Khenpo David Karma Choephel will bring great benefit to many people." —Khenchen Thrangu Rinpoche

"Shantideva’s Entering the Way of the Bodhisattva is one of the most celebrated treatises from the golden age of Indian Buddhism. It sets forth all of the key trainings of the Mahayana path, and its beautiful verses have inspired great masters and dharma practitioners throughout centuries. I am delighted that, under the guidance of the Venerable Khenchen Thrangu Rinpoche, Khenpo David Karma Choephel has offered a fresh translation of this transformative set of instructions. The wisdom and compassion of Shantideva’s work is as timely as ever for our world, and I am certain that many will find pure fuel for their journey in these pages." —Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche, author of Mind Beyond Death and Emotional Rescue
