Eager faith (Tib. འདོད་པའི་དད་པ་, döpé dépa, Wyl. ‘dod pa’i dad pa) — one of the three kinds of faith.

Chökyi Drakpa says: "Eager faith is the eager wish to abandon negative actions having reflected on their faults; and the eager wish to undertake positive actions having considered the benefits they bring. It is similar to the yearning that someone suffering from extreme thirst has for water."
