Dudjom Tersar, or Tersar for short is the combined collection of termas revealed by Dudjom Lingpa (1835-1904) and Dudjom Rinpoche (1904-1987). Dudjom Tersar literally means “The New Treasures of Dudjom”, in the sense of the recent lineage, as opposed to older lineages of termas.
Answer: The more one loves and opens one’s heart, the more likely one is going to feel a significant loss when relationships, experiences, and other things of meaning come to an end. There is nothing wrong with grief and sadness.
Buddhists are not training to be unfeeling. We are learning how to be present with the experience as it is, whether that be heartache or something else all together. It is when we cling to our wish for things to be different from how they actually are that we experience the most intense suffering. Perhaps, rather than being unattached or detached or letting go, we are learning to let be.
