Publisher's Summary

Buddhism has a lot to say about suffering - and there are likely few times we suffer more intensely than when we break up with a romantic partner. It feels like you may never recover sometimes. But Lodro Rinzler has wonderfully good news for those suffering heartbreak: The 2,500-year-old teachings of the Buddha are the ultimate antidote for emotional pain. And you don't need to be a Buddhist for them to apply to you. In this short and compact first-aid kit for a broken heart, he walks you through the cause and cure of suffering, with much practical advice for self-care as you work to survive a breakup. The wisdom he presents applies to any kind of emotional suffering.

I agree...

... with what other reviewers wrote. This was such a helpful book, and I really felt the author cared. This was a balm to a soul in grief.

The book you weren’t ready to need

I didn’t know if I was ready to listen to this book. It’s been sitting in my “to read” shelf for about 6 weeks now. This book did the impossible for me. It took me on a journey from experiencing my own heart break, to better understanding the heart break of others, and finally to letting myself sit and feel all of these emotions without shame. Whether you think you are ready or not to read (or listen to) this book, trust me when I say that it WILL help you.

it helps!

nothing would reasonably take the pain away permanently at this moment, the week my ex moved out. (I'm writing this from an air mattress) found some peace in this book though

Good, thought-provoking book, but brief.

it was a very good book with lots of thought-provoking ideas and perspectives. But it felt quite brief with an abrupt end.

Lost Romance

Thank you Lodro!!! This was wonderful.
My heartbreak is that of a lost love. I know she is not mine and probably not even right for me but she was so much more to me in my life. I am moving on with my life but she remains in my head and heart... I still miss her so much. I downloaded the audible version and will be listening to it again. So much useful information. I have connected so much with my heartbreak and will continue to heal and be a better person. Howie

another great book by Mr. Rinzler

easy to read as Mr Rinzlers books always are. however it's not a normal book, more like a help guide. so like a first aid guide you flip to the type of heartbreak you are dealing with.

Short & Healthy

This has been super helpful. Lodro speaks/writes with... No préjudice (if that's the right way to say that).

Although it might be hard to swallow when your heartbreak is still very raw.

You will be...

This book introduced me to Buddhism. To forgive other to forgive our Self. Compassion towards others and find love everywhere, understanding that suffering is part of us all as is love. I thank me everyday to genuinely say Thank you now. Thank you.
