Sakya Monastery is honored to announce that His Eminence Khöndung Abhaya Vajra Sakya Rinpoche will bestow an oral transmission of the supreme practice of Chenrezi. This Chenrezi practice is from the lineage of Mahasiddha Tangdong Gyalpo, King of the Empty Plain, (1361-1485). Tangdong Gyalpo is recognized by practitioners of all Tibetan traditions as a great saint. He is believed to be an emanation of both Chenrezi and Padmasambhava. Tangdong Gyalpo himself visited Padmasambhava in Sangdok Balri and received the teachings for this meditation practice directly from Chenrezi.
Chenrezi is the esteemed deity of Loving Kindness and Compassion. Loving Kindness is the wish that all beings have happiness and compassion is the wish that they be free from suffering. Chenrezi is practiced twice weekly at Sakya Monastery. In particular, the Tangdong Gyalpo tradition is practiced on Thursday evenings.
