TBY to support 'Shanti Deva'
"Born in the late seventh century monk Shantideva was an Indian Buddhist philosopher of the famous University of Nalanda.
Praised throughout the Buddhist world for his writings on the Bodhisattva path and philosophy of the Madhyamika, Shantideva remains one of the authors most read and discussed today.
Beyond the qualities of scholarship and poetic power of his work, Shantideva urges all people to pursue the path of wisdom and compassion."
