Sharing the Dharma Continues!
We are pleased to announce a very special series of teachings with Her Eminence Dagmo Kusho (Dagmola) Sakya. Dagmola has had many roles throughout her lifetime: wife of our founding Lama, His Holiness Jigdal Dagchen Sakya Dorje Chang, mother, grandmother, and as one of the few female Buddhist lamas she is considered a spiritual mother by students all over the world.
Through the eyes and special insight of this amazing spiritual teacher, we have a rare opportunity to hear about the teachings of the Lord Buddha: stories of faraway places, Tibetan culture, spiritual masters and much, much more.
Join us on the first Sunday of each month from 11:00 – 11:30 AM, directly after Chenrezi practice, for the continuation of Sharing the Dharma.
These teachings will also be live-streamed at our website: http://dagmokusho.sakya.org
October 1st: Buddhist Etiquette
How to be mindful in and around the Monastery, and when interacting with the Lamas. Showing respect to the teachers, and for the spiritual surroundings, Dharma materials, etc. is beneficial to one’s own practice. Dagmola will explain to us how and why.
November 5th: The Twelve Deeds of Lord Buddha
This text is recited every Sunday during the Chenrezi practice. In this talk, Dagmola will explain the meaning of the Twelve Deeds and the significance of including them in our Sunday practice.
December 3rd: Sachen Kunga Nyingpo
The first of the five great masters who founded the Sakya Order of Tibetan Buddhism. Join us to find out more about this spiritual master whose statue you see in the shrine room of the Monastery. Dagmola will share with us the details of his life, his accomplishments and his very special contributions to the teachings of the Sakya tradition.
Her Eminence Dagyum Kusho Sakya, also known as H.E. Dagmo Kusho, was born in Kham, Eastern Tibet. As the niece of one of the most highly realized Sakya Masters of the twentieth century, H.E.

Jigdal Dagchen Sakya Dorje Chang of the Khön lineage, a Head Lama of the Sakya order of Tibetan Buddhism. She is currently the Acting Head Lama of the Sakya Monastery of Tibetan Buddhism in Seattle, WA. Dagyum Kusho specializes in Tara empowerments, practices, and teachings, and has many students throughout the world.
