 Tsechen Namdrol Ling at Santa Fe

wisdom-swordDear Friends,

We know that there are many deserving charitable organizations seeking to raise funds. We ask that you consider Tsechen Namdrol Ling for your generous donation.

On May 6th, 2014, H.H. Kyabgon Gongma Trichen Rinpoche, the 41st Sakya Trizin, came to Santa Fe to inaugurate our center and bestow wondrous dharma teachings. Our name Tsechen Namdrol Ling means a “Place for Complete Liberation and Great Compassion”. We were incorporated in the State of New Mexico and granted our 501(c)(3) status in 2015.

His Holiness Sakya Trichen will return July 21-22, 2018, granting the empowerment of Avalokiteshvara, The Mahamudra of Great Compassion & sublime dharma teachings.
Plan ahead to be with us in Santa Fe, New Mexico for this most auspicious & blessed occasion!

Now we are very fortunate to have the continuity of teachings of this authentic lineage in the West. To date, we have hosted H.H. Kyabgon Gongma Trichen Rinpoche, Ven. Khenpo Lama Pema Wangdak, Ven. Lama Kunga Thartse Rinpoche, Ven. Lama Choedak Rinpoche, Ven. Lama Jay Goldberg & Ven. Khenpo Thupten Gongphel. As we eagerly anticipate a continual flow of guest teachers, we feel a strong connectivity and warmth with our Tibetan community and all the Dharma centers here.His Holiness has publicly expressed His strong connection to Santa Fe and its people. This is a very special place indeed! 

At the direction of His Holiness Kyabgon Gongma Trichen Rinpoche, and with his blessings, we are also in the early stages of searching for a permanent facility in the Santa Fe area ~ either by acquiring and converting an existing facility or space to our specifications, or acquiring land and building a facility.  You can expect to hear more from us regarding this exciting campaign as we develop the conditions to bring this to fruition.

We are happy to report that our sangha is growing as members of the community get to know the Sakya tradition better. Our ongoing objective is to continue to host teachings from great Lamas, to grow in membership, and to find a permanent facility to house our religious activities. Your participation, ideas and support are welcome!

Now, we humbly reach out to you for your generous donations. Please help us sustain our new center and build the firm foundation for the flourishing of the Dharma in Santa Fe. No amount is too small. We will provide you with a receipt to evidence the deductibility of your donation.  You can either mail us your donation or donate online at our website below.  If you kindly provide us with your email address, we will keep you up to date on teachings and events taking place in the Santa Fe area.
