"Renowned Tibetan Buddhist master H.H. Dudjom Rinpoche offers Dharma teaching drawn from an array of subjects. Sharp, forthright, direct- this work is a treasure of heart advice."- Tricycle
"This book embodies lineage. If one can see past the culture and environment, one is given the original map to liberation. As Dudjom Rinpoche himself says, 'this advice is the very blood of my heart. Hold it close and never let it go."- Ordinary Mind
DUDJOM RINPOCHE (1904-1987) was a highly revered Buddhist meditations master and the leader of the Nyingma lineage of Tibetan Buddhism. He also traveled and taught extensively, proving instrumental in bringing Buddhism to people in Europe, North America, and other parts of Asia. He founded a teaching and meditations center in Dordgne, France, in 1980, where he lived until his death in 1987. Counsels from My Heart is one of the few volumes of teachings by this legendary teacher to become available in English. It features talks to students presented in Dudjom Rinpoche's charateristically incisive and direct style, bringing the timesless heart-counsels of this great teacher vividly to life.
