The best book I have read on the Bodhisattva Vow and path. Some of Trungpa's best.
Very clear introduction to the act, practice and meaning of taking the bodhisattva vow. Introduces all relevant concepts e.g. relative and absolute bodhichitta, aspiring and entering etc; includes a chapter on arousing bodhichitta. Chapters by Trungpa, Sakyong Mipham, Gampopo, Patrul Rinpoche and Shantidevi. Short yet full, digestible read.
