'Bodhipathapradipa' is unanimously construed as the magnum opus among the compositions of Dipankara Srijnana (Atisa). As a religious text composed by a Buddhist mendicant of India as well as Tibet, it reconciles the doctrines of the different schools of Buddhism (Madhya-mika Sunyavada, Vijnanavada of Yoga-charins and the doctrines of Mahayanic Sutras) in its tenets towartds the realisation of Bodhi or Perfect Enlightenments. But as Rgveda being a book of hymns of Brahmanism, enterains universal appeal in its doctrines of philanthropical dynamism, as several Mahayanic text while professing Mahayanic doctrines profess comopolitan appeal in its dynamic principle of universal emancipation as 'Stuti Chintamani' of the triabl poet Bhima Bhoi of Orissa while advocating the theology of Mahimaism preaches for a better world-order even at the cost of the distress of Mahimaites, Bodhipathapradipa epitomises in the midst of Buddhist theology the basic principle of Humanism and the ideal of human civilization. The text embodies critical and intellectual discourses on Buddhism and Bodhipathapradipa, life of Dipankara Srijnana, Sanskrit text of Bodhipathaprdipa, its translation in English and the ideology of Bodhipathapradipa in critical and comparative studies. It also highlights the ideology of Indo-Tibetan Buddhism.
