Shantideva’s classic text, the Bodhicaryavatara (meaning Bodhisattva’s Way of Life) is an essential guide for living.  Come and learn the ancient wisdom of the Bodhisattva path; a life dedicated to others.  Be guided through this profound text by practical commentary from H.E. Zimwock Rinpoche.

 From Shantideva’s Bodhicaryavatara:

  “poverty makes a good man as soft as cotton. Opulence makes an evil man coarser than wood”

“When the good want to practice virtue or while the good set to work, There the evil look on.”

“If there is no form there would be no shadow”

 ”wealth erodes a king’s law and fleas disturb hermit’s concentration”

 “Those who yearn for peaches need to plant peach trees”
