    Full Description: "Provides many new translations of original texts formative of Mahayana concepts of Enlightenment and resolves the year-old controversy between Indian and Tibetan views of the meaning of buddhahood. Buddhahood Embodied, good words and speeches are a great help in any profession, and knowing that you can talk to a higher group with confidence can be a great affirmation.

In the book Awakening Through Love: Unveiling Your Deepest Goodness, John Makransky pioneers new ways of making Tibetan Buddhist practices of compassion and wisdom accessible to people of all backgrounds and faiths. Makransky is a professor of Buddhism and Comparative Theology at Boston College and a guiding teacher with Lama Surya Das in the Dzogchen tradition of Tibetan Buddhism.

This movement added a further set of discourses to the original canon, and although it was initially small in India, it had long-term historical : Michael Kicey. Many people say that Mahayana is for the Bodhisattvahood which leads to Buddhahood while Theravada is for Arahantship. I must point out that the Buddha was also an Arahant. Pacceka Buddha is also an Arahant. A disciple can also be an Arahant.
