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 is a heart-son of Tsara Dharmakirti Rinpoche, a renowned master of the Longchen Nyingthig tradition as well as a rime (nonsectarian) master of Tibetan Buddhism. After remaining with his root lama for eighteen years, Anyen Rinpoche came to America, where he established the Orgyen Khamdroling Dharma Center in Denver, Colorado. Rinpoche's Dharma activity focuses on helping Buddhist practitioners prepare for the moment of death through the Dying with Confidence Program and the Phowa Foundation. He also teachings a traditional shedra, or intensive Vajrayana study, for westerners at Orgyen Khamdroling.
