His Holiness Sakya Trizin is the 41st throne holder of the Sakya Order of Tibetan Buddhism, and has been the supreme head of its many disciples for over fifty years. He is a descendent of the great masters who founded the order in 1073 and is considered to be an emanation of Manjushri, the Bodhisattva of transcendental wisdom.
He has been praised by His Holiness the Dalai Lama as ‘King of Vajrayana practitioners,’ and is renowned throughout the world for the brilliance and clarity of his teachings and his fluency and precise command of English.
Receiving teachings directly from His Holiness carries a special lineage of blessings from the founders of the Sakya Order, as well as from Manjushri himself.
