This book is the real deal. A serious full-on study text, I think more for a training monk, but contains much that the ordinary person like myself can benefit from.
A commentary to Shantideva's Guide to the Bodhisattva's Way of Life. The Introduction explains the layout of the book and a brief summary of each of the ten chapters. 1. The Benefits of Bodhichitta 2. Disclosure of Evil 3. Full Acceptance of Bodhichitta 4. Conscientiousness 5. Guarding Alertness 6. Patience 7. Effort 8. Concentration

This is my absolute favorite book of all time along with Guide to the Bodhisattva's Way of Life, which Meaningful to Behold is a commentary of. I've read this book many times over the years and each time I get something new and helpful to me at that time in my life. If you want to be more compassionate and learn to free yourself and others from suffering, read this book!
