three visions-coverThe most profound & fundamental teaching of the Sakya Lineage: The Three Visions refers to the three views. It examines the state of those experiencing suffering, those engaged in the methods leading towards freedom from unhappiness and misery, and those fully enlightened ones who have attained the highest goal of omniscient awakening. A step-by-step process culminating in ultimate peace.

Khenpo Thupten Gongphel became a monk of the Sakya Order in 1984, when he joined the Sakya Centre in Dehradun, India and took his novice vows. He completed the Sakya curriculum of Tibetan grammar, Buddhist rituals & scriptures.  He took his full monks’ vows in 1990. In 1997, he joined the Sakya Institute at Puruwala. In 2004, he obtained his Kachupa Degree (Buddhist Philosophy, B.A.), and his Lopon Degree (Buddhist Philosophy, M.A.) in 2006.  He spent the next two years teaching Buddhist Philsosophy at the Sakya Institute.

In 2008, Khenpo joined the IBA (International Buddhist Academy, Kathmandu, Nepal) Monastic Leadership Program. There he learned English & Mandarin Chinese, while teaching Buddhist Philosophy in English to foreign students during the Summer Courses at the Academy. He served as monastic disciplinarian during his last two years there.

He is qualified to act as a translator and interpreter in Tibetan, English, Mandarin Chinese & Hindi. Khenpo is known as a genuine monk of the Sakya Order of Tibetan Buddhism, and a person of excellent moral character and standing.

His title of “Khenpo” was bestowed by H. H. Kyabgon Gongma Trichen Rinpoche, The 41st Sakya Trizin, in 2016. He is the resident lama at the Minneapolis Sakya Center. This is Khenpo’s second visit to Santa Fe.
