Free read ☆ बोधिसत्त्वचर्यावतार Bodhisattvacaryāvatāra Û PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook Ke the Book of Proverbs the Bodhicharyavatara is a timeless work of wisdom the longevity of which is due to the uality of its verse as much as to its wisdom For the first time an attempt has been made to recover that poetic immediacy by rendering the text in iambic lines Regard your body as a vessel A simple boat for going here and there Make of it a wish fulfilling gem To bring about the benefit of beings With this translation gleaming in its clarity a Buddhist classic becomes an English classic Worthy of recitation a. I just finished this and all I can say is Wow This work by Shantideva is a spiritual tour de forceThe introduction is indispensable by the way You really must read it if you want to understand the larger points of the textAside from a good deal of inspiration and warning of sufferings to come there are some brilliant arguments in this book In one passage for example Shantideva demonstrates why loving our enemies is the only logical thing to do If something does not come to be when something else is absentAnd does arise that factor being presentThat factor is indeed its causeHow can it then be said to hinder it stanza 104 So like a treasure found at homeThat I have gained without fatigueMy enemies are helpers in my Bodhisattva workAnd therefore they should be a joy to me stanza 107 Since I have grown in patienceThanks to themTo them its first fruits I should giveFor of my patience they have been the cause stanza 108But why should our enemies be loved and thanked when they intended only malice towards us and did not mean to stimulate our patience Shantideva answers this tooThe second to last chapter titled Wisdom is by far the most philosophically rich and will be very challenging for those not familiar with the concept of emptiness in Mahayana Buddhism I personally need to study this and then return to reread itThis book may seem to be simple poetry but it contains some profound and subtle arguments that reuire close attention to detail to follow I give it five stars because it is spectacular but I would not recommend it to someone seeking a general introduction to Buddhism This is deep water

Free read ☆ बोधिसत्त्वचर्यावतार Bodhisattvacaryāvatāra Û PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook Shantideva was an Indian Buddhist while Buddhism still flourished in India His great work the Bodhicharyavatara or Entrance to the Path of Awakening became a major text of Tibetan Buddhism long after it went out of circulation in its homeland It is a handbook on how to realize the nature of existence and of compassion that arises from such realization The Dalai Lama said of it If I have any understanding of compassion and the practice of the Bodhisattva path it is entirely on the basis of this text that I possess it Li. A great collection of aphorism but also a sophisticated philosophical consideration of two major problems for salvific religions if I m concerned with my own salvation should I care about other people and why The obvious answer of course is that your treatment of other people is intimately related to your own salvation but that s much harder to justify than you might think Santideva was a monk writing to other monks and prone to answering uestions like how will all this meditation really help other people though by saying things like The perfection is the mental attitude itself Because you kind of have to say that if you re going to defend withdrawal from the world and you kind of have to withdraw from the world if you re going to live a life of purity which is the only way to save yourself rightWell what follows the above uote 510 is a pretty good try to get out of that logic The other problem concerns the value we place of this world In Santideva s understanding of Buddhist cosmology nothing exists everything is illusion and this causes some pretty obvious problems why should I bother trying to avoid rebirth if it s all just illusion anyway Isn t the process of trying to avoid rebirth just as illusory as the pleasure we take from a nice meal Book 9 tries to answer such uestions not very well in my eyes but with a great deal of thought And this is again applicable to all salvific religions how do you balance the desire for a better state of existence with the needs of the present state This is connected to the first problem of course The Oxford World s Classics translation is a good one scholarly but not obtrusive The notes are helpful while of course avoiding much discussion of the tremendous cosmology needed to justify the idea of rebirth There s a lot of suffering and hell in this book and the editors take the easy oh it s just in your mind way out which means they don t have to tell us anything about the various levels of hell and so on That s okay you can t annotate everything I just want to know about the levels

Clear beautifully translated directions on self control uotes For those who have no introspection though they hear the teachings ponder them or meditate like water seeping from a leaking jar their learning will not settle in their memoriesIt is taught that rules of discipline may be relaxed in times of generosityWork calmly for the happiness of othersDo not inconsiderately move chairs and furniture so noisily around Likewise do not open doors with violence Take pleasure in the practice of humilityHerons cats and burglars achieve what they intend by going silently unobserved Such is the constant practice of a sageStrive always to learn from everyoneThe body used to practice sacred teachings should not be harmed in meaningless pursuitsDo not teach the dharma to the disrespectfulTo those who are on the lower paths do not explain the vast and deepBut all of this must be acted out in truth for what is to be gained by mouthing syllables What invalid was helped by merely reading the doctor s treatisesAll the good works gathered in a thousand ages such as the deeds of generosity and offerings to the blissful ones a single flash of anger shatters themNo evil is there similar to anger no austerity to be compared with patienceMy anger finds its fuel From this it grows and beats me down Therefore I will utterly destroy this my enemy my foe who has no other purpose but to hurt and injure meCome what may I will never upset my cheerful happiness of mind Dejection never brings me what I wantWhat is the use of being glumThere is nothing that does not grow light through habit and familiarityWhen sorrows fall upon the wise their minds should be serene and undisturbedThere is no reason for our rage It is like resenting fire for being hotThey their weapons I my body brandished Who then is worthy of my rageWe who are like children shrink from pain but love its causes So why should others be the object of our rageHow else can I expect to repay God s goodness except by working to make living beings happyI shall be master of myself and servant of the world
