For the past thirty years the Dalai Lama has consistently recommended Shantideva's A Guide to the Bodhisattva's Way of Life as essential reading for those interested in applying Buddhist philosophy to daily life. In Enlightenment to Go, David Michie provides a lively and accessible guide to "the best of" Shantideva. Sharing his enthusiasm for Shantideva's radical insights, life-changing psychological tools and transcendent wisdom, he draws on a wide variety of scientific sources--from mindfulness training to cognitive behaviour therapy, from neuropsychology to quantum physics--to show how Shantideva's Guide is as relevant as ever.
Whether you are a newcomer to Buddhism or a seasoned practitioner, Enlightenment to Go offers a glimpse of a radiantly different reality--and a beautiful illumination of why the Dalai Lama recommends Shantideva's Guide above all others.
"The compassionate wisdom of Shantideva is brought alive in this practical and helpful guide." --Jetsunma Tenzin Palmo, Tibetan Buddhist nun
