The Bodhicharyavatara is an indispensable Buddhist treatise for practitioners who want to train themselves in the teachings of the Great Vehicle. It is a universally adopted view that should any one aspire to become a genuine Dharma practitioner, one must fully master The Bodhicharyavatara. The reason that this text is so highly regarded is that it provides an incisive and comprehensive training system on how practitioners can generate bodhichitta, awaken the mind, and how to engage themselves in the actions of a Bodhisattva. Moreover, the verses of this treatise are simple and elegant, while at the same time, abundantly filled with profound meaning. It offers practical advice that will help practitioners relieve and overcome the mental barriers that they will encounter while evolving from ordinary beings into great Bodhisattvas.
