The bodhisattva vow is the altruistic commitment to generate and practice bodhicitta—the mind intent on achieving enlightenment for the benefit of all sentient beings. Upon receiving the vow, we enter the Mahayana (Great Vehicle), practice according to the bodhisattva path to become fully enlightened buddhas, and avoid committing the eighteen root downfalls.

His Holiness the Sakya Trichen is the supreme head of the Buddhist Sakyapa Order and serves as the spiritual director and as a board member of Sakya Thupten Dargye Ling, the Minnesota Sakya Center.

Born in Tibet in 1945, His Holiness is from the noble Khön family—whose predecessors date to the early days of Tibetan history, were disciples of Guru Padmasambhava, and established the Sakya school in the eleventh century. Widely regarded as the living embodiment of Manjushri, he holds the unbroken lineage to an ocean of sutra and tantra teachings. He imparts the Buddhist teachings of wisdom and compassion extensively around the world, and works tirelessly to establish and support monasteries, nunneries, and educational institutions.


尊貴的第四十一任薩迦法王於1945年出生在西藏,出身於高貴的昆氏家族。其先輩可追溯至西藏歷史初期,是蓮花生大士的弟子,並於十一世紀創立了薩迦派。 法王被廣泛認為是文殊菩薩的化身,他擁有經、密教法海洋的不斷續傳承。 他在世界各地廣泛傳播佛陀的智慧與慈悲的教義,並孜孜不倦地致力於建立和支持佛教寺院、尼師院以及教育機構的發展。
