Finding Peace in A Complex World
Public Talk 7:00pm -8:30pm



“His Holiness Sakya Trichen is the king of Yogis” – His Holiness Dalai Lama. 

We are deeply honored, blessed and joyful to announce the historic visit of His Holiness Sakya Trichen, one of the world’s preeminent Buddhist meditation master, in eminence second only to His Holiness the Dalai Lama.

His Holiness is a great spiritual leader, master & scholar, author, a spokesman for peace, and an advocate of human values. During this most auspicious historic visit, His Holiness Sakya Trichen will bestow a profound Empowerment ceremony, teachings and a public talk. This is a rare, and precious opportunity not to be missed!

Born in Tibet in 1945, His Holiness Sakya Trichen is the 41st head of the Sakya Order of Tibetan Buddhism with its millions of students worldwide. He is considered to be an emanation of Manjushree (the Buddha of Wisdom) presently residing in Dehradun, Northern India.

Since exile from Tibet in 1959, he has worked tirelessly for the benefit and happiness of others by establishing over thirty monasteries, schools, hospitals and universities. His Holiness has been traveling and teaching widely in America, Europe, Australia and Asia and is renowned for the brilliance and clarity of his teachings, fluency and precise command of English.

In Tibet, people would travel weeks and months to be in His Holiness’s presence. Here we are so fortunate that he is coming to our doorstep. Simply to be in his presence transforms your mind, and communicates the essence, the spirit and heart of wisdom and compassion.

Finding peace in a Complex world. 
How can ancient wisdom teachings help us find inner peace and contentment in today’s fast paced and stress-filled world? According to Buddhist teaching, loving-kindness, compassion and wisdom are innate qualities of our mind. Scientific studies shows that Meditation is a powerful tool to connect us to these qualities in an ongoing way. 
In this public talk, His Holiness will show us how the practice of mindfulness and awareness can put us in touch with a source of true joy, even when we find ourselves in challenging circumstances in this complex world.
