Praise For Counsels from My Heart

"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
