THE SAKYA TRADITION
Delivering the Precious Sakya Teachings Accurately and Entirely in Your Native Languages
May 26, 2021
Dear Dharma Friends,
Happy Saga Dawa Düchen! On this auspicious occasion, we are excited to share with you with a stream of Dharma blessing from His Holiness the Sakya Trichen.
We are also pleased to share with you a newly published teaching, entitled An Overview of the Sakya School of Tibetan Buddhism: History, Masters, and Teachings by His Holiness the Sakya Trichen. The Sakya School of Tibetan Buddhism was established approximately 950 years ago. In this teaching, His Holiness provides a comprehensive review on the history of the Sakya Order, its special qualities, its five founders, the nine great scholars and masters of the Sakya, and the main teachings of the Sakya school. Understanding the history and special qualities of this school, its teachings and lineage masters, will help us to appreciate and be grateful for this unbroken pure lineage and its lineage masters. The teaching text is available in English and Chinese (Simplified and Traditional). You may also listen to the audio here.

May the teachings of Lord Buddha flourish and remain for long. May we perfect the two accumulations swiftly.
Yours in Dharma,
The Sakya Tradition Team
