Parnashavari Practice for Epidemics

His Holiness the Sakya Trichen suggests the practice and prayers of Parnashavari for the recovery and protection from coronavirus. We encourage you to practice on Parnashavari’s prayer and mantra at home at your convenience for the well-being of all living beings. Here are the links to the practice texts:

Year 2019 is very special for the Minnesota Sakya Center, Sakya Thupten Dargye Ling. We hosted teachings and initiations kindly bestowed by His Holiness the Sakya Trichen, His Holiness the 42nd Sakya Trizin, and His Eminence Gyana Vajra Rinpoche in Minneapolis.

With the support and help from our sponsors, volunteers, and all participants, the three special programs of 2019 were successfully completed.
