Ven. Lama Kunga Rinpoche and members of Ewam Choden will join the Tibetan Sakya Community for a memorial of the great Sachen Kunga Nyingpo (Tibetan: ས་ཆེན་ཀུན་དགའ་སྙིང་པོ་) on the day of his Parinirvana.    Everyone is welcome. The day is Sunday, Nov. 13, 2016. The starting time 7:00 pm. The location is Ewam Choden.

Sachen Kunga Nyingpo was the first of the great five patriarchs of the Sakya lineage. The son of Khon Konchok Gyalpo, he was the 3rd Sakya Trizin. He lived from 1092 to 1158.  When he was still a youth, meditating in retreat under the guidance of Bari Lotsawa, he saw Manjushri and received from him the teaching known as,  Lojong Shenpa Shidrel or Mind Training of Parting from the Four Attachments.

If you are attached to this life, you are not a true spiritual practitioner;
If you are attached to saṃsāra, you have no renunciation;
If you are attached to your own self-interest, you have no bodhicitta;
If there is grasping, you do not have the View.
