H. H. Kyabgon Gongma Trichen Rinpoche in Tibet
H. H. Kyabgon Gongma Trichen Rinpoche is the 41st Head of the Sakya Order of Tibetan Buddhism. He is world-renowned for the brilliance and clarity of His teachings & fluent, precise command of English. Just as H. H. Dalai Lama is regarded as an emanation of Avalokiteshvara (or Great Compassion), H.H. Kyabgon Gongma Trichen Rinpoche is regarded as an emanation of Manjusri (or Transcendent Wisdom). To receive teachings directly from Him not only carries the special lineage blessings of the Sakya Order, but also of the Bodhisattva Manjushri himself.
Our name, Tsechen Namdrol Ling, was given by H. H. Kyabgon Gongma Trichen Rinpoche on Sept 1, 2013. It translates as a “Place for Complete Liberation and Great Compassion”. Tsechen Namdrol Ling was inaugurated during His Holiness’ visit on May 6th, 2014. It was incorporated in the State of New Mexico and also was granted its Non-Profit organization 501(c)(3) status in 2015. We offer training in the disciplines, educational & artistic resources from within the Sakya Lineage’s ancient traditions. When His Holiness inaugurated and blessed our new center, He said that “Tsechen Namdrol Ling will be a very big center in the future”! Right now we are still in our fledgling stage, and are looking for a permanent location in the Santa Fe area. Your ideas and assistance are most welcome.
Presently, we are very fortunate to have access to the teachings of this authentic lineage in the West. We will always keep you up to date on teachings and events taking place in the Santa Fe area. So far, we have hosted H. H. Kyabgon Gongma Trichen Rinpoche, Lama Kunga Thartse Rinpoche, Lama Jay Goldberg, Lama Choedak Rinpoche & Khenpo Lama Pema Wangdak. We anticipate a continual flow of amazing guest teachers in 2017. Stay tuned! We feel wonderful warmth between all the dharma centers here, and Santa Fe is a very special place indeed. We hope that you will come visit us and attend teachings. May the dharma remain and flourish for incalculable aeons. May all beings experience peace and happiness.
