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.
