"A powerful guidebook and a source of comfort at life's most crucial moment."—Tulku Thondup Rinpoche, author of Boudless Healing

We all have temporary and ultimate fears, those of this life and those of the future-but among all of our fears, our greatest fear is the fear of death. Dying with Confidence gives us the methods to grasp the stronghold beyond death. Thank you, Anyen Rinpoche, for this incredibly kind book."—Garchen Rinpoche

"This may be the most important contemporary Dharma book now available."—Deborah Schoeberlein, author of Mindful Teaching and Teaching Mindfulness

"This is a wonderful book, a very practical guide grounded in the author's personal experience and deep reflections.

Anyen Rinpoche was born in Amdo, Tibet. His lineage can be traced back directly to the renowned Dzogchen master Patrul Rinpoche, author of Words of My Perfect Teacher. Anyen Rinpoche's training included more than fourteen years of intensive study combined with solitary retreat before he obtained the degree of khenpo (master teacher) and became the head scholar of his monastic university in Kham, Tibet. Rinpoche is known for his profound understanding of the scriptures as well as his easy-to-understand interpretation of them. He has taught extensively in Tibet and China and now mentors students throughout Southeast Asia, Japan and North America.
