Review quote

"With clear, concise directions, the author guides the reader through what is necessary to ensure a calm and smooth transformation into the next phase of existence. Including topics ranging from preparation of the will to organ donation and the use of medications and medical technology, Dying With Confidence provides a complete guide for Buddhists and also addresses the role of non-Buddhists as well. The appendices in the back of the book provide highly useful resources and additional information that the reader will also find useful. While the concept of one's death is almost always uncomfortable to contemplate, it is not something that should be overlooked; this book will help to make the metamorphosis that much easier."--Elephant Journal

About Anyen Rinpoche

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. Tulku Thondup Rinpoche was born in Golok, Eastern Tibet, and recognized as a reincarnate lama at age five. He left Tibet as a political refugee in 1958 and taught at Lucknow University and Visva Bharati University in India before coming to the United States as a visiting scholar at Harvard University in 1980. Since then, he has lived and worked in Cambridge, Massachusetts, engaged in translation and writing projects on Tibetan Buddhism, focused particularly on the teachings of the Nyingma school. He is the author of numerous books on history, literature, mind, and meditation.
