Time: 11:15 – 11:45 am
Location: Shrine Room
All are welcome
Her Eminence Dagmo Kusho (Dagmola) Sakya has had many roles throughout her lifetime: wife of the founding Lama of Sakya Monastery in Seattle, His Holiness Jigdal Dagchen Sakya Dorje Chang, mother and grandmother of the Khon lineage, and as one of the few female Buddhist teachers, she is considered a spiritual mother by students in many parts of the world. Through the 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 from 11:15 – 11:45am 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
Lecture topic: Trip to Vajrakilaya Puja in Darjeeling
Dagmola will discuss her trip to Darjeeling, India, where she attended an annual Vajrakilaya Puja led by His Eminence Asanga Vajra Rinpoche at Ghoom Monastery. Vajrakilaya is the yidam deity who embodies the enlightened activity of all the buddhas and whose practice is famous for being powerful for blessings, protection and removing obstacles.
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. Dezhung Rinpoche III, her training in Buddhist practice began at an early age. She has received extensive teachings and empowerments from many great lamas of all four schools of Tibetan Buddhism throughout her lifetime. 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.
