There was time when my WeChat Moment was bombarded by "chicken soup" type advice.They always start with similar catchy titles, for example, "10 good pieces of advice fromXXX", or "What successful people will not tell you".

In most cases, this advice is empty and useless, for person'life will not change justbecause of some sugar-coated quotation.

If you really want good life advice, perhaps you should turn to time-honored spiritual guidebooks instead.

Here are five books from five respected Tibetan lamas, which will guide you on your way tofind fortune, face difficulties and even heal the wounds of the past.

The Tibetan Book of Living and Dyingby Sogyal Rinpoche

This book has been translated into 30 languages and printed in some 56 countries. It teachespeople how to live better and wisely through learning the meaning of death. And it encouragesreaders not to be afraid of death, but have peace and remain clear-minded when the daycomes.

Sogyal Rinpoche was born in 1947 and traveled to many countries to promote Buddhistteachings.

Chinese business magnate Pan Shiyi, film star Chen Kun and celebrated actress Zhao Weiare both faithful readers of the book.

"The book teaches people how to face death, the most terrifying thing in our lives," said Pan.

Chen said, "This is one of my favorite books. Since 1998 when found it, have read it fromcover to cover for at least ten times."

Achieve by Doing, by Khenpo Sodargye

The book is a sequel of Khenpo Sodargye's another book Living through Suffering, and aims to help you apply its teachings to every aspect of your life. Complaining is vain, and what you really need is action.

Just as Buddha said, "However many holy words you read, however many you speak, what good will they do you if you do not act upon them?"

Born in Tibet in 1962, Khenpo Sodargye was ordained at the Larung Buddhist Institute when he was 23 years old. He translated many Tibetan Buddhist teachings into Chinese to let Han people know more about Tibetan Buddhism. In the past twenty years, touring from Asia to Europe, he has fully devoted himself to bring the essence of Buddhism to people.

"My mom is very stubborn and closed to any good advice but she became softer and nicer after reading this book," reader Tihuguanding, commented on Amazon.

Always Present: The Luminous Wisdom of Jigme Phuntsok Rinpocheby JigmePhuntsok

The book, edited by Khenpo Sodargye, is collection of Jigme Phuntsok'teachings.

Jigme Phuntsok died in 2004 at age of 71, and was renowned contemporary Buddhismmaster of the Nyingma tradition of Tibetan Buddhism. He started his global tour to share hisunderstanding of Buddhism in the 1990s and benefited tens of thousands of people around theworld. His wish was to enlighten people and save them from unending suffering.

"read this book twice and each time had different feelings. And it is worthy to read manytimes," an Amazon user Yujixin said.

Everything is the Best Arrangementby Gyatso

This is Gyatso Living Buddha'first book, sharing his understanding of life in nine chapters.The book was strongly recommended by Sogyal Rinpoche, author of The Tibetan Book ofLiving and Dying and Professor Lou Yulie from Peking University.

Gyasto teaches readers how to deal with confusion and failure, and how to develop stronginner ability to face the changing world.

Being ordained at the Larung Buddhist Institute at 13, Gyatso also helped to launch charityfund to help children in rural areas.

The Truth of Lifeby Tsultrim Lodr?

In this book, Tsultrim Lodr? discussed about reincarnation and the relationship betweenBuddhism and modern science. He encourages people to keep soft and tolerable attitudetowards others and the whole world. "If you don'want to be hurt by the outside world, youhad better treat others well first."

Tsultrim Lodr? was born in Carze county in Sichuan province in 1962, and began his spiritualjourney at 22. As follower of Jigme Phuntsok, he is also good at debating and composing.

reader commented on Amazon, "13 years ago had an amazing experience. And this bookexplains to me the reason why had that."
