Counsels from My Heart by Dudjom Rinpoche
Counsels from My Heart -- by Dudjom Rinpoche

In these teachings, Dudjom Rinpoche calls upon us to follow the Buddha's instructions to "get a grip on our minds."  He points the way to giving up our habitual ways of behaving in order to liberate ourselves from suffering.  He also offers advice on how to view the Vajrayana teachings -- which are said to be so powerful that they can be dangerous if misunderstood or practiced incorrectly.  He says the most important point is to study the view of the Great Perfection, which is, essentially, that all phenomena are empty by nature.  But this must not cause us to fall into the trap of acting on our own meager understanding.  He says: "Like eagles soaring in space, we should be clearly convinced of the view, but at the same time we should heed the karmic principle of cause and effect."
