Shantideva was a Buddhist scholar and a member of the monastic university of Nalanda, which was one of the most celebrated centers of learning in ancient India. He is said to have been a highly unusual and independent person, impervious to social and ecclesiastical pressures, and able to pursue his insights irrespective of public opinion.

Its work has been published in several languages and is renowned for its clear and accurate literary style.
