Welcome to Sakya Thupten Dargye Ling

Sakya Thupten Dargye Ling, also known as the Minnesota Sakya Center, is one of the oldest Sakya Centers in the United States, and is a branch of Tsechen Kunchab Ling, seat of His Holiness the Sakya Trichen in the United States. Over the years, the Center’s primary activities have included inviting great teachers to our area and holding group study and meditation sessions.

Additionally, it has supported our teachers’ Dharma endeavors, supported student monks and nuns in India, and helped with the publication of books and magazines. Please click on the links below to learn more about our center and teachers.
