*From the Padma Translation Group's Edition: "There are two Sanskrit titles of Shantideva’s work. The longer one, Bodhisattvacharyavatara, was rendered literally as the title of the Tibetan version (byang chub sems dpa’i spyod pa la ’jug pa), the literal meaning of which is The Entrance to the Way of the Bodhisattva. There exists a shorter and much-used title, Bodhicharyavatara, which means Entrance to the Path of Awakening.
