about this book

The inspiring and eloquent verses found in The Thirty-seven Verses on the Practice of a Bodhisattva were composed by Gyalse Ngulchu Thogme (1295–1369), an ancient Tibetan master and legendary exemplar of generosity and kindness. This classical text—a concise and easy-to-memorize distillation of the teachings presented in Shantideva’s masterwork The Way of the Bodhisattva—has been studied and followed by Tibetan monks and scholars for centuries. In this new translation, featuring the commentary of the beloved twentieth-century master Dilgo Khyentse, this remarkable text is made accessible and relevant to contemporary Buddhists.
