This marks the anniversary of H.H. Dezhung Rinpoche III’s passing. In 1960, Dezhung Rinpoche accompanied H.H. Jigdal Dagchen Sakya to the U.S. to participate in a University of Washington research project on Tibetan culture and religion. In 1974, H.E. Dezhung Rinpoche and H.H. Dagchen Rinpoche co-founded the original Seattle Sakya Dharma center, Sakya Tegchen Choling, which eventually became Sakya Monastery of Tibetan Buddhism.
Dezhung Rinpoche gave countless teachings and empowerments at centers across North America and founded Sakya Centers in New York City, Minneapolis, and Boston. Dezhung Rinpoche’s reincarnation, Sonam Wangdu, was born in Seattle, Washington in 1991. He resides at Tharlam Monastery in Nepal and studied at Sakya College in Rajpur, India.
