In The Bodhicharyavatara the great Indian scholar Shantideva presents teachings on the Bodhisattva path in beautifully written verses. Ponlop Rinpoche provides profound and engaging commentary on this classic text. He explains the physical and mental support that is the basis for bodhicitta, the benefits and causes of bodhictta, and the characteristics of relative and ultimate bodhicitta. He intersperses these teachings with Kadampa methods for reducing negative actions, concluding with practical methods for maintaining bodhicitta through heedfulness, mindfulness and awareness. Throughout, Rinpoche teaches with humor and profound clarity. Six talks, including Q&A. Translation assistance by Tyler Dewar.
