Overview

Counsels from My Heart is one of the few volumes of Dudjom Rinpoche's teachings ever translated and published. The book features timeless teachings presented in a style that is direct and sharp, bringing this great teacher, who was known for not mincing his words, vividly to life. Topics include: A brief history of Buddhism. A succinct description of the Three Jewels, the three central principles of Buddhism. A description of the notion of the self and how that notion leads to the cyclic state of suffering of all beings. A section introducing the concept of the bardo, or states of mind in between life and death. Many practitioners of Tibetan Buddhism have been waiting for this book—and they will not be disappointed.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Beyond the Christian tradition, Praying Dangerously: Radical Reliance on God stands out as an almost mystical approach to prayer as communion with the divine. Drawing on Sufism, Buddhism, Hinduism and Christianity, Regina Sara Ryan, a former Roman Catholic nun, writes with passion and energy about what she calls "transformational" prayer, which seeks to annihilate the individual soul in favor of union with the Divine. (Oct.) Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
