Book Title: Becoming Bodhisattvas: A Guidebook for Compassionate Action
Author: Pema Chödrön
Buddhist nun Pema Chödrön presents a friendly and encouraging guide to spiritual practice for all those who want to take up the path of the bodhisattva, one who aspires to live life with courage, generosity, patience, fearlessness, and compassion. The Way of the Bodhisattva, composed by Buddhist scholar Shantideva in the eighth century, has long been treasured as an indispensable guide to enlightened living, offering a window into the greatest potential within us all. It presents a comprehensive view of the Mahayana Buddhist tradition’s highest ideal—to commit oneself to the life of a bodhisattva warrior, a person who is wholeheartedly dedicated to the freedom and common good of all beings. Pema Chödrön here invites you to journey more deeply into this liberating way of life, presenting Shantideva’s text verse-by-verse and offering both illuminating stories and practical exercises to enrich the text and bring its timeless teachings to life in our world today.
