Gar Drolma Buddhist Center, in co-sponsorship with Stephen K. Hayes, is honored to announce the upcoming visit of His Holiness, the Sakya Trichen. Students will have the rare opportunity to receive the Vajrakilaya blessing and teachings from His Holiness in this special one-day event, Saturday, May 4th.
His Holiness, the Sakya Trichen, served over 50 years as the 41st Sakya Trizin, or head of the Sakya Order (one of the four major schools of Tibetan Buddhism). His Holiness and his ancestors are the primary lineage holders of this powerful practice in an unbroken line of transmission and realization since the Vajrakilaya teachings came to Tibet in the eighth century. His Holiness himself was initiated into the practice at the age of four by his great father, and has made this practice the lifelong subject of profound meditation retreats and personal daily practice.
The practice of Vajrakilaya acts as a powerful means to remove personal inner and outer obstacles to peace, happiness and enlightenment, while uprooting negativity in our minds. We hope you can join us to receive the blessings of these teachings from this precious teacher.
