Publisher Description

This extraordinarily clear exposition on the wisdom section of the Guide to the Bodhisattva's Way of Life is based on an oral teaching given in Switzerland by HH the Dalai Lama before an audience of thousands of Tibetans and Westerners in 1979. Shantideva's Guide to the Bodhisattva's Way of Life is one of the most important texts in the Mahayana tradition of Buddhist practice. Its ninth chapter ,the section on transcendent wisdom, is known among Buddhist scholars as a challenging exposition of Madhyamika philosophy and difficult to understand without a commentary. This invaluable volume with its precise elucidation of core issues of Tibetan Buddhism stands as a key work in Buddhist literature.

Review

The ninth chapter of The Way of the Bodhisattva requires a book in itself . . . . I refer you to the excellent explanation in the introduction to the Padmakara translation of The Way of the Bodhisattva and to His Holiness the Dalai Lama's book Transcendent Wisdom [from Snow Lion Publications]."--Pema Choedroen, author of How to Meditate "This incredible teaching on the Wisdom Section of Shantideva's A Guide to the Bodhisattva's Way of Life has been meticulously translated by B. Alan Wallace with the additional bonus of an oral commentary by His Holiness the Dalai Lama. It does assume some background in Buddhist philosophy on the part of the listeners and that particular section can be challenging but this is a very clear elucidation and this updated edition is a key work for Buddhist scholars."--Mandala

"In this book we have the Dalai Lama at full strength...a profound work."--Parabola
