Confident faith (Tib. ཡིད་ཆེས་ཀྱི་དད་པ་, yiché pé dépa; Wyl. yid ches kyi dad pa) — one of the three kinds of faith.

Chökyi Drakpa says: "Confident faith is a confidence in the qualities of the master and the Three Jewels, which cannot be shaken by temporary circumstances or events, and a trust in the laws of cause and effect strong enough to survive the worst kind of circumstances such as illness. This is the kind of faith one should have."
