The Dalai Lama discussed the 'Boddhisatvas Way of Life' at Hamburg, Germany after discussing secular ethics yesterday during his six day visit on August 24, 2014.

The Dalai Lama, in his opening teaching, explained the history behind Shantideva, an 8th century Indian Buddhist monk, who was a scholar at Nalanda, and composed the two texts, "Compendium of Training' and 'Guide to the Bodhisattva's Way of Life.'

He further talked about the difficulty in explaining everything in four sessions, and urged the audience to take the book home to analyze, research, and study themselves.
