Free translation of the Bodhicaryāvatāra?

Post by Tiago Simões » Sat Dec 02, 2017 7:47 pm

Is there a free complete downloadable translation of the Bodhicaryāvatāra available? A commentary will also work.
Then, the Licchavi Vimalakīrti spoke to the elder Śāriputra and the great disciples: “Reverends, eat of the food of the Tathāgata! It is ambrosia perfumed by the great compassion. But do not fix your minds in narrow-minded attitudes, lest you be unable to receive its gift.”

"All the suffering of the lower realms, whatever difficulty and unhappiness we may experience as human beings, as well as every other possible suffering of the three realms of existence, have their origin in cherishing ourselves more than others."
