Counsels from My Heart is one of the few volumes of teachings by Dudjom Rinpoche, a legendary meditation master of the Nyingma lineage of Tibetan Buddhism, to become available in English. It features talks to students presented in Dudjom Rinpoche's characteristically incisive and direct style, bringing the timeless heart-counsels of this great teacher vividly to life.
Dudjom Rinpoche, Jigdrel Yeshe Dorje (1904-1987) was a highly revered Buddhist meditation 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 meditation center in Dordogne, France, in 1980, where he lived until his death in 1987.
"Renowned Tibetan Buddhist master H.H. Dudjom Rinpoche offers Dharma teachings 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
