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. It’s a great, practical offering of consolation for someone you know who’s going through a tough time, and for yourself when you’re looking for the light at the end of the tunnel in your own situation.
“The good news about heartbreak is that it, like any painful emotional state, will eventually change–guaranteed. But until that guarantee kicks in, Lodro Rinzler’s book serves as one of the best first-aid kits I’ve seen. He offers the heartbroken much realistic comfort, but also insight that will be useful not only for navigating their own way in the sea of painful emotions, but for being a source of consolation to others. ” David Richo, author of How to Be an Adult in Relationships
