7:30pm H.E. Dezhung Rinpoche Memorial (Zoom and In-Person)
May 16 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm PDT
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.
