The Complete Path Program: Second Year Teachings & Retreat

The Complete Path Program was organized by International Buddhist Academy (IBA) to make the teachings of Sakya tradition available in structured way under the guidance of His Holiness Ratna Vajra Rinpoche, the 42nd Sakya Trizin. The program was designed to help Dharma students receive a complete series of important teachings from one of the principle lineage holders of Tibetan Buddhism over a period of seven years in a gradual and comprehensive manner. 

Minnesota Sakya Center is one of the international participating partner centers of The Complete Path Program, and Khenpo Thupten Gongphel is a qualified teacher to teach the first three levels of the program in the United States. Please see the details of second year program “The Three Visions” by Ngorchen Khonchog Lhundrup sponsored by Minnesota Sakya Center below.
