Editorial Reviews

Feminist Review
Not the typical recitation of concepts one finds in most introductory writings on Buddhism. Instead, the concepts are explained via the personal experiences of Lama Dudjom Dorjee and have a more intimate tone ... The conversational feeling of the sections allows you to absorb the concept at hand without having to fight so hard to understand it ? The book’s format is also helpful, as it doesn?t require you to read the chapters in order: each section deals with a different topic, so flipping through the book is allowed, and may actually even be encouraged.
Buddhadharma: The Practitioners Quarterly
a terrific example of the traditional genre of shal-dam, or life advice, written for contemporary North Americans. This small book touches lightly on profound topics, gently suggesting ways of viewing the world and one’s existence in it in a radically new way. The ninety-five short sections ? many less than a single page ? address foundational ideas of the Buddhist path, such as renunciation, impermanence and cause and effect.
Sheela Bhojwani
It is an unfortunate fact that many have stayed away from Buddhism and its invaluable teachings because they have found it irksome to circumnavigate the new concepts and the new terminology. The author, through this book, performs the useful service of presenting the essentials of Buddhist wisdom in a manner which is practical, easy to grasp, clear and lucid . Along with intellectual enlightenment, this scholar has presented us with practical and possible means to ascertain that we put all this Buddhist wisdom to its maximum use and benefit, in our daily lives.

"Whoever reads this book will receive blessings and benefit. . . . [Lama Dudjom Dorjee] is both scholarly and a highly accomplished practitioner." —Ven. Khenpo Karthar Rinpoche

"Heartfelt Advice provides a brilliant picture of the depth and breadth of Buddhist meditation. This book is a masterful integration of Buddhist teachings and how they can be applied in difficult life situations. This book provides a unique view formed from his experiences as a Tibetan refuge, Lama scholar, father, and husband. After thirty years of teaching around the world, Heartfelt Advice is a gift to behold." —Dr. William Bradshaw, PhD, professor at University of Tennessee
