Our Lamas

His Holiness Sakya Trizin

After the take-over of Tibet in 1959, the Sakya Trizin arrived in India after a treacherous journey over the Himalayas. He established the Sakya Monastery at Rajpur, Dehradun.

The Sakya Lineage is headed by His Holiness the Sakya Trizin, next in rank to His Holiness the Dalai Lama.

Khenpo Lekshey

"Come here when you have time or when you are doing important things or even when you have some problems, sickness etc... and say prayers and prayer is not necessarily to read Buddhist text. Prayers you can make with your own words and with your own mind."

The Venerable Khenpo Thubten Nyima & The Venerable Khenpo Jamyang Lekshey

The Venerable Khenpo Thubten Nyima with his brother, the Venerable Khenpo Jamyang Lekshey founded our new Buddhist Centre were only small children when they left Tibet.

Tibetan Buddhism is tolerant and respects all beliefs and the Lamas work tirelessly for the benefit of all beings with love and compassion. They have vast wisdom of training the mind and meditation, following original lineage teachings which are thousands of years old.

We hope to practise these principles at our Sakya Buddhist Centre, to create a good and helpful atmosphere and benefit in particular the local community.
