Sakya Monastery is Suspending In-Person Public Events
Due to the ongoing COVID19 pandemic, Sakya Monastery has decided to remain closed until further notice.
While the Monastery itself is closed, we are offering many classes via Zoom, including Virtual Mondays, which you can read about in our new online spring catalog. We will let you know as we add new classes.
Our Sunday Chenrezi livestream will continue to be offered every week. You can also join Thursday Chenrezi, as well as many of our spiritual practices, virtually via Zoom. Check our online calendar for dates and links.
We hope everyone stays healthy!

Based on teachings first given in early 2018 in Taipei and Seattle, in "The Way of Invincible Love", H.E. Avikrita Vajra Rinpoche draws on the example of the future Buddha Maitreya, embodiment of enlightened loving kindness, and the words of his "Majestic Aspiration" to explore the key features of the Mahayana path to full enlightenment.
