About the book:
For centuries Tibetan Buddhist masters have understood the dying process and experienced its potential for great joy and meaning. They see death not as a black hole, but as a great chance for spiritual development.

The book Fearless Death shares the living experience of these masters and makes it practical and relevant to the West today.

In 1968 Lama Ole Nydahl and his wife Hannah began training with Buddhist masters of the Kagyu and Nyingma schools in the Himalayas. In 1972, Lama Ole learned the rare meditation practice of conscious dying (Phowa) according to the wishes of his teacher, the great 16th Karmapa Rangjung Rigpe Dorje. He has since taught the Phowa to over 90,000 people worldwide.

Fearless Death condenses the precise and practical information Lama Ole learned from his teachers in the East. It is enhanced and made relevant through his decades of experience guiding modern people through the dying process.

One is less afraid of things one can understand. The same is true about the dying process. With Phowa training and the knowledge found in this book it is possible to transform fear, expectation and doubt into confidence and a calm state of mind when facing death.
