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.
