Celebrate Losar 2019: Create a Bridge of Light

Join us for Create a Bridge of Light to purify our past negative karma and accumulate virtuous merits and blessings! With your donation to Minnesota Sakya Center at whatever level you choose, the following Bridge of Light will be established during the 2019 Losar celebrations at the following locations:

On February 5th, 2019 & Every Sunday during Losar Month at 
SAKYA THUPTEN DARGYE LING, MINNESOTA
and during Losar at
TSECHEN KUNCHAB LING, NEW YORK
and during Losar at
