About this app

This App displays one verse a day from Shantideva's text "Engaging in Bodhisattva Behavior" (Bodhisattvacharyavatara) and allows to read through the entire text. "Engaging in Bodhisattva Behavior" is an outstandingly practical and inspiring Buddhist text that covers all the aspects of the Buddhist path. Shantideva was a great Indian Buddhist master who lived during the 8th century CE.

Two of his texts survive - the Bodhicharyavatara (the text that is displayed in this app) and the Shikshasamuccaya ("Compendium of Trainings"). Both texts are still used to the present day by and especially the Bodhicharyavatara is one of the most cherished and most frequently taught texts in the Tibetan tradition.

Entire text of the Way of the Boddhisatva. It is easy to adjust the settings to make it a comfortable read. In fact, there are many languages it can be translated into like Arabic and Tibetan. It sends a verse of the day to my notification page for convient viewing. It allows us to favorite verses. I give it 4 stars only because it has potential for more cool features and more visually-appealing features, which does not bother me but may bother other people.

Well done and enjoyable to use. Two requests: option to set verse a day to be chronological and to change font. Thanks for creating this. Looking forward to your future apps.

Excellent thank you so much but if you could just add the dark mode feature it would be awesome.

Dear Wang Dorjey. Thank you for your message. I am currently working on a new version of the app. The new version will also support a dark mode and the possibility to change the font size. Furthermore it will be possible to look at the text in sevaral languages, including Tibetan.

What's new

New: added support for Android 12 and 13.

Note: On Android 12 and higher the notification message with the verse of the day can appear some minutes later than the time that you have selected. This is the case because Android 12 and higher have very aggressive energy saving mechanisms and do not allow for normal applications to set an exact timer.
