Previous ed. of this translation published as Flash of lightning in the dark of night. 1994.

Many people consider the Dalai Lama to be a living embodiment of the spiritual ideal of the bodhisattva - someone who dedicates their life to freeing all beings from suffering and confusion.

Here this beloved teacher presents a detailed manual of practical philosophy based on the best-known text of Mahayana Buddhism, "The Way of the Bodhisattva" (Bodhicharyavatara).

He explains and amplifies the text, illuminating its message of putting others before oneself and showing how anyone can develop a truly 'good heart'.

This book was previously published under the title "A Flash of Lightning in the Dark of Night".
