His Holiness Kyabgon Gongma Trichen Rinpoche (The Sakya Trichen) served as the 41st head of the Sakya Order of Tibetan Buddhism until March 2017. The Sakya order, which was founded in the eleventh and twelfth centuries, is one of the four main Tibetan Buddhist schools.
His Holiness Sakya Trichen is one of the few living Tibetan masters who were brought up and trained traditionally in Tibet before the cultural revolution. It is a rare and precious opportunity to be able to meet authentic masters like him in this day and age, and to benefit directly from the insights of this living wisdom tradition.
His Holiness Sakya Trichen has been a teacher for His Holiness the Dalai Lama who has referred to him as “The King of Yogis”. His Holiness is renowned throughout the world for the brilliance and clarity of his teachings and his fluency and precise command of English. Receiving teachings directly from His Holiness is a rare opportunity and carries a special lineage of blessings from the founders of the Sakya Order.
