HH Sakya Trizin Leads Sutra Resounding
We are delighted to share the news that His Holiness Sakya Trizin will personally lead a sutra resounding in Walden, New York.


The teaching on “A Gift of Dharma to Kublai Khan” will be held on April 1-3, in Tsechen Kunchab Ling (12 Edmunds Lane, Walden, NY 12586, USA). This text, written by Chogyal Phagpa (1235-1280) for Kublai Khan—the Mongol Emperor of China, has become a great classic mahayana text with a special emphasis on the nature of mind and reality.


On April 3, a sutra resounding will be conducted in English to celebrate the completion of the teaching. Everyone is welcome to participate. Read more.
