His Holiness Sakya Trizin's previous visits to the Dechen Community: 2002

In October 2002, His Holiness Sakya Trizin visited the UK for His seventh visit to our dharma community. His Holiness was accompanied on the visit by His youngest son H.E. Gyana Vajra Rinpoche.


The first part of the visit was hosted by Sakya Thinley Rinchen Ling. His Holiness began the sequence of teachings by teaching Chogyal Phakpa's Letter of Instructions to Kublai Khan, a wonderfully lucid summary of all the paths of the dharma. Over the next few days His Holiness gave the initiation of Chakrasamvara from the lineage of Krishnacharya. This major empowerment was followed by that of Vajrayogini Narokhachoma.

The second part of the visit took place in Manchester. His Holiness blessed the Kagyu Ling shrine room and subsequently bestowed the initiation of White Manjushri from the lineage of Mati Panchen and the initiation of Mahachakra Vajrapani from the Marton lineage.
