A dedicated exponent of the nonsectarian Rime movement, Khyentse Rinpoche was respected by all schools of Tibetan Buddhism and taught many eminent teachers, including His Holiness the Dalai Lama. He tirelessly worked to uphold the Dharma through the publication of texts, the building of monasteries and stupas, and by offering instruction to thousands of people throughout the world. His writings in Tibetan fill twenty-five volumes.
"Filled with stories and examples, the great strength of Enlightened Courage is that it makes you realize the possibility of a radically different point of view."—Shambhala Sun
"Inspired and very clear."—Tibet Journal
"When I think of Zurchungpa for his great scholarship, years of practice in solitary retreats, and for his great wisdom, compassion, and charisma to lead countless students of all levels, my mind naturally goes to Dilgo Khentse Rinpoche. He must have been someone like him. This book enshrines the living experience and heart of two truly realized masters, translated by people who not only understand but also practice the teachings."—Ringu Tulku
