4.0 out of 5 stars A Treasurehouse of Profound Wisdom, 12 Feb 2004
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Guide to the Bodhisattva's Way of Life: A Buddhist Poem for Today (Paperback)
This beautifully presented ancient text contains nuggets of wisdom which deserve profound meditation - probably far more profound than I can manage as yet! I am pretty new to things Buddhist and would certainly not claim to be anywhere near enlightment, but I have found this book useful as a source to dip into and savour. The presentation itself has been skillfully designed to draw the reader in to an attitude of serenity. Each section is prefaced by a beautiful line drawing which illustrates a key verse. The illustrations themselves are inspiring. The content, being ancient, is highly poetical and hence highly wordy. It is probably not the best introductory text for those unfamiliar with Buddhist thought. For those with some familiarity however it provides a clear and logical progression towards enlightenment. I am glad that I bought it and would recommend it to anyone with an interest in Buddhism seeking inspiration.
