Ayang Rinpoche is a world-renowned master of Phowa (transference of consciousness at the time of death). Rinpoche says,
"My Phowa teaching is for a joyful end to one's life. While you are alive, don't forget about preparing for your death, as we don't know when or how our life will end." Read more about Phowa
