You might be aware that I have an ongoing project involving the Bodhisattvacaryāvatāra by Śāntideva.   I am studying the text through and through, like combing tangled hair.   I am collecting together translations of the root text and am at the point where they are tidy-enough to present in this blog.   I have created the pages already (see menu at the top of this page), but they are mostly blank.   I have, today, filled in the Introduction, which comprises the sources for the whole work, a prayer for blessings for study of the text and four accounts of the life of Śāntideva.   If you are interested you can jump straight to it here:
