Fundacion Sakya in Pedreguer in southern Spain is the main seat of HH Sakya Trizin in Europe. Established a decade ago, it has hosted both His Holiness and Ratna Vajra Rinpoche a number of times. Between October 10th and 12th it played host to Lama Jampa and Dechen Dolma. At the request of the centre's resident teacher, Lama Rinchen Gyaltsen, Lama Jampa bestowed three days of teaching on Thokme Zangpo's commentary on The Seven Points Of Mind Training on an enthusiastic gathering of the resident sangha and sudents from various parts of Spain.
The centre itself is constructed in an exclusive resdential complex on the side of a hill with views overlooking the Mediterranean. Its beautiful and spacious temple is the centre piece of a very impressive architectural undertaking.
This was the second occasion on which Lama Jampa had taught Thokme Zangpo's text this year, the first being in Mexico City. He will teach it again in San Francisco at the beginning of November during his brief West Coast teaching tour.
