The Bodhicharyavatara (The way of a Bodhisattva) is one of the most treasured text within the Tibetan tradition. The text was written by the eighth-century sage Shantideva. It is remarkably relevant for our times, describing the steps to cultivate courage, caring and joy – the keys to healing ourselves and our troubled world.
The path of the Bodhisattva is open to every one of us and during the course, we learn the tools and meditations to transform our lives.
