News of the Dungseys and Sakya dharma in New York

His Holiness Sakya Trizin's two sons, H.E. Ratna Vajra Rinpche and H.E. Gyana Vajra Rinpoche, arrived back in Rajpur, India on 25 July following their 63 day tour of China and Tibet. They were accompanied on the tour by Lama Jamyang Zopa. They visited many of the holy places in Tibet, including Ngor, Samye, Shigatse and Lhasa, and gave brief teachings in Sakya itself. Many people came to receive the blessings of the Dungseys.

In other news, a number of Lama Jampa's students, recently arrived in New York, visited His Holiness Sakya Trizin's seat on the East coast in Walden, upstate New York last weekend. They were kindly received by Lama Kalsang Gyaltsen who oversees a number of Sakya dharma groups in the USA and also the Centre in Walden, Tsechen Kunchab Ling.

His Holiness established the seat in 2001 and a temple is currently being constructed on the land. Please visit this link for further details of the construction of the temple. His Holiness will bestow the Lamdre in Walden in Summer 2011.

Lama Jampa Thaye will be visiting New York this Christmas at the invitation of his students and will also meet with Lama Kalsang Gyaltsen to discuss the development of Sakya dharma in the USA.
