A Commentary on Shantideva's Bodhicharyavatara

“The present work contains a thorough practical guide to the Bodhicharyavatara by Geshe Yeshe Tobden. He has that rare distinction of being not only qualified as a scholar, but also of having gained long acquaintance through many years of meditation in the mountains. As a result, his explanation has the special flavor of heartfelt personal experience.”—from the foreword by the Dalai Lama

“Geshe Yeshe Tobden studied at one of the world's greatest Buddhist monateries, Sera. Not only did he master the subjects of philosophy, logic, wisdom, metaphysics, and morality, his presentation shows that he also has experiential understanding. His combination of knowledge and experience is greatly needed today.”—Gehlek Rimpoche, author of Good Life, Good Death
