Guide to the Bodhisattva's Way of Life
Stephen Batchelor


The structure of Shantideva's Guide to the Bodhisattva's Way of Life is broadly based on the Mahayana teaching of the six perfections. In this weekend teaching, rather than follow this sequence, Stephen Batchelor examines four major themes that run through the text: afflictive emotions, the aspiration to attain enlightenment for the sake of all sentient beings, the Bodhisattva as a model of human life that we can aspire to and emptiness, the insight which grants liberation from cyclic existence.
