Shantideva’s Śikṣā Samuccaya
Śikṣā Samucchaya, also known as The Compendium of Buddhist Doctrines, was written by Shantideva and presents in detail the conduct that bodhisattvas should embrace at all times. It is organized as a commentary on twenty-seven short verses and consists primarily of quotations (of varying length) from sutras.
The Compendium provides a comprehensive overview of the Mahayana path to Awakening. It is the shortest of the three texts written by Shantideva, the Sutrasamucchaya being the longest one and the Bodhicharyavatara the middle length text.
We are grateful that Drubgyud Tenzin Rinpoche will teach on this important text of Shantideva as it is often overlooked by scholars and practitioners. It is a valuable teaching for all levels of Mahayana practitioners in modern times.
