On this, the anniversary of Sakya Pandita Kunga Gyaltsen (1182-1251), we will practice The Guru-Yoga of the protector Manjusri Sakya Pandita entitled: “A Great Rain of Knowledge, Love and Power”.
To attend, it is necessary to have received the initiation of Sakya Pandita. (Please note that Lama Jampa will be giving this initiation in Bristol on January 29th 2022, which would enable you to attend this annual practice at the Bristol Sakya Centre in future years. You can find details of the teaching here.).
Sakya Pandita was the fourth of the “Five Venerable Masters” (Gongmas) of the Sakya tradition, and the sixth Sakya throne holder. He was one of the greatest scholars in Tibetan Buddhism and a realised master.
He authored some of the core texts of the Sakya shedra curriculum, notably “Elucidating the Thought of the Sage” and “Discriminating the Three Vows”, which have been taught by Lama Jampa, at the Dechen retreat centre in France, Changlochen.
