A day of remembrance and prayers for one of the greatest scholars and practitioners in the Sakya tradition. He was the uncle of H.E. Dagmo Kusho, and co-founder with H.H. Dagchen Rinpoche of Sakya Tegchen Choling (which later became Sakya Monastery) in Seattle in the 1970’s. His generosity in teaching the Dharma was immeasurable. His life story is recounted in his biography A Saint in Seattle, written by David Jackson.
Chenrezi is the Bodhisattva or Deity of loving kindness and compassion. The Chenrezi service and meditation is the central spiritual practice at Sakya Monastery. It is very easy to practice and enables you to develop loving kindness and compassion in your life.
