H.H. Sakya Gongma Trichen Rinpoche
Manjushri Empowerment – Sakya Pandita

Wed, Aug 24, 
10:30 a.m. CEST /  2.30 am MDT / 4.30 am EDT
The practice of Guru Yoga connects us through the blessings of the teacher with the true nature of the mind. This initiation combines the wisdom of Manjushri with the knowledge of Sakya Pandita, the fifth founder of the Sakya school and a great scholar. After granting the initiation, His Holiness will give the lung and concise commentary to ensure the best results in our practice.

Virupa Blessing & Khago Blessing

Wed, Aug 24, 10:30 a.m. CEST /  2.30 am MDT / 4.30 am EDT
Virupa is one of the 84 mahasiddhas and is known for his spiritual realizations, which he demonstrated in multiple ways throughout his life in unorthodox manners. In addition, Virupa was the one who systematized the teachings of the Dakini Dagmema into the cycle of teachings known as the Lamdre, the most important corpus of teachings in the Sakya tradition. His fearlessness and courage in embodying the Dharma, free from the influence of worldly dharmas, are an example for any contemporary practitioner.

Tsechen Namdrol Ling ~
Eight Years of Dharma in New Mexico
Our name was given by H. H. Kyabgon Gongma Sakya Trichen in September 2013, and translates as “Place of Complete Liberation and Great Compassion”. Since our center’s inception, we have hosted H.H. Sakya Trichen Rinpoche in 2014 & 2018, and Lama Kunga Thartse Rinpoche, Lama Choedak Rinpoche, Khenpo Pema Wangdak, Khenpo Thupten Gongphel, Khenpo Migmar Tseten, Jay Goldberg, Geshe Sherab, Glenn Mullin, Nima Dorjee & Elisabeth Benard. May the rain of dharma blessings continue with Upcoming Teachings.

In January 2020, we took up residence at the retreat cabin in rural Jemez Springs. The Dharma has created a stabilizing force for all of our well being. The kindness of our Teachers helps us to develop resilience through online programs, offered to safely support our practice online, especially during the pandemic.

Ser-ki Si-ra: The Golden Basket


H.E. Luding Khenchen Rinpoche at the Dolma Phodrang

Sakya College is celebrating its Grand Golden Jubilee (50 years) from Oct 25 – 30, 2022! We wish to assist by preparing & share recorded visual memories for this great milestone. In 1992, H.E. Luding Khenchen Rinpoche kindly helped figure out how to photograph all the monks at Sakya Centre, Sakya College & Ngor Monastery with limited film supplies.negatives-Serki Sira

This new media project for Tsechen Namdrol Ling was initiated at Dehra Dun, Musoorie and Manduwala, shot on Tri-x (b/w) and Kodachrome (color slides) which are undeveloped to date & need digitization. We will share with our Teachers & publish for TNL’s Media & Publication Archive.

How exciting to see where these monks are now almost 30 years later!
Please email if you wish to be involved…

Therefore, we also request our alumni to relay about this special occasion to one another.
