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.

What a wonderful initiative. Thank you for creating this app. But I wish there was an option to receive the verses in the correct order because many of them only make sense in context with their place within the text. Also I think the translation is not the best and much of the poetry of Shantideva is lost. These two points mean that unless you have studied this text fairly extensively already some of the meaning will be lost on you. Thank you. May this app be of benefit to all beings 🙏🙏🙏
