H.E. Asanga Vajra Sakya is the grandson of H.H. Dagchen Rinpoche and therefore a direct descendent of the unbroken Khon lineage which dates back to 1073. His Eminence Asanga Vajra Rinpoche was born on May 1st, 1999 in Seattle Washington. In April of 2005, at the age of five, Asanga Vajra Rinpoche left Seattle, Washington to begin his new life to live, study and train as a future Tibetan master who will further the Sakya Khon lineage.
We are honored to welcome Asanga Vajra Rinpoche back to Sakya Monastery. He will be staying in Seattle for a few months before returning to attend Sakya College. During his stay here, Asanga Vajra Rinpoche will bless us with teachings and an initation.
But first, let’s give him a warm welcome! At Noon, June 24th we will be holding a welcome reception potluck in H.E. Asanga Vajra Rinpoche’s honor. Bring something to share and come meet H.E. Dhungsey Asanga Vajra Rinpoche!
