New publication for Easter time, soon available for order! New publication for Easter time, soon available for order! Bodhicaryāvatāra, written by Śāntideva, is one of the most important and inspiring Buddhist texts. It describes the complete path of a bodhisattva, linked with instructions for practice. The 9th chapter, "The Perfection of Prajñā" (transcendent wisdom), is about insight into the true nature of phenomena. This discourse is sophisticated and complex to the highest degree - the book is available in the Dharmashop. The II Pawo Rinpoche's commentary on this ninth chapter, now published in German for the first time, is a key work in understanding it. To support the key points of his commentary, he quotes from the sutras, cites Indian commentaries, and quotes from earliest Tibetan commentaries. After Pawo Rinpoche thoroughly explains the resolution of reference points according to the Madhyamaka system, his commentary also offers us some insights into the experience of a reference point-free mind, unlike most other texts of this kind. This work is a must for those seeking a deeper understanding of Prajñā, emptiness, the two realities, the nature and qualities of Buddhahood, and "entering the way of life of a bodhisattva." 413 pp.
