> « Dans ce poème d’une rare beauté, Shântideva retrace la voie de la compassion et de la vacuité que suivent les Héros de l’Éveil pour délivrer les êtres de la souffrance et de l’ignorance. Depuis le VIIIe siècle, son message n’a cessé d’inspirer des milliers de pratiquants dans le monde entier. »

I read through this more quickly than I should have. I think it's a book that I'll have to read through a few times and after studying other material to really understand it well. ( )
  SGTCat | Feb 25, 2021 |
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 questions 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... right?

Well, what follows the above quote (5.10) 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 questions, 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 more about the levels. ( )

Librarything Website:

One of the great classics of Mahayana Buddhism, The Way of the Bodhisattva ( Bodhicharyavatara) is a guide to cultivating the mind of enlightenment, and to generating the qualities of love, compassion, generosity, and patience. Presented in the form of a personal meditation in verse, it outlines the path of the bodhisattvas--those beings who renounce the peace of an individual salvation and vow to work for the deliverance of all beings, and to attain enlightenment for their sake. The text is beloved by Buddhists of all traditions.

Originally written in India in Sanskrit, the text first appeared in Tibetan translation in the eighth century. The fact that it has been expounded, studied, and practiced in Tibet in an unbroken tradition lends the Tibetan version of the Bodhicharyavatara a particular authority. The present version has therefore been translated from the Tibetan, following a commentary by the Nyingma master Kunzang Pelden, renowned for its thoroughness, clarity, and accessibility.

> Le livre lui-même est magnifiquement édité, des peintures originales et des dessins à l'encre introduisent chaque section et même la couverture est d'une texture attrayante. La poésie est lucide et raffinée, même quand Shantidéva nous entraîne dans de complexes explications de la philosophie Madhyamika. Un glossaire est inclus pour aider le lecteur à s'y retrouver dans les termes techniques. Ce texte peut être une excellente introduction à la tradition mahayana, ou bien être étudié en profondeur avec un commentaire tel que Trésor de contemplation --Danieljean (Babelio)
