H.E. Ratna Vajra - Visit to Retreat Centre in France

  • Sakya Changlochen Ling Le Bugue, Dordogne France (map)

We are delighted to announce that H.E. Ratna Vajra Rinpoche has accepted an invitation from Lama Jampa Thaye to visit Sakya Changlochen Ling on the afternoon and evening of 27th June this year, when Rinpoche will bestow the Torma Initiation of Vajrakilaya from the Khön lineage. 

Vajrakilaya embodies the indestructible compassion of enlightened mind which transcends all negative emotions and is one of the chief deities of both the Sakya and Nyingma traditions.

Many of you will remember the wonderful visit of His Holiness Sakya Trizin to Changlochen in July 2014. Now we are very excited to be able to welcome His Holiness’s eldest son, who will by then have been enthroned as the new Sakya Trizin.

Attendance at the initiation is restricted to those who have made a formal commitment to Buddhism by taking refuge. It is incumbent upon those who receive the initiation to maintain the three vows (individual liberation, bodhisattva and vajrayana vows) after receiving the initiation.
