I just finished Santiveda's Guide to the Bodhisattva way of Life (Wallace & Wallace translation, Snow Lion Press). Interesting and intense book, clearly a product of its ancient times, yet the message shines through if you can get past some of that. The Dalai Lama has a Guide to Santivedas Guide, and Batchelor has "Alone with Others" (which I posted on some time ago here -
I, for one, plan to go back and reread the Dalai Lama's Guide, and I might even go looking for some type of book club discussion forum on Santiveda's Guide, though I am not expecting or suggesting we do that here.
Anyway, I find it all quite consistent with our practice here, though I admit it's not Zen, and I was curious that none of these books are on our reading list. Would they be worthy additions on Buddhist ethics, for example? Or are they viewed as more different than I see them? I guess I'm asking Jundo and Taigu, though anyone familiar with these texts is certainly welcome to comment.
