The Vancouver Sakya Centre

About Us

Sakya Tsechen Thubten Ling (STTL) is a centre for Buddhist meditation and learning belonging to the Sakya tradition of Tibetan Buddhism. Its activities are guided by His Holiness Sakya Trichen, the spiritual head, His Eminence Gyana Vajra Rinpoche and its founder and resident spiritual director, Her Eminence Jetsun Kushok Rinpoche.

The centre holds regular Sunday puja sessions and hosts teaching and other spiritual events conducted by our resident Lama, Lama Ngawang Tenzin, as well as visiting teachers. The centre is temporarily closed to public at this moment due to COVID-19, but hosts online zoom puja sessions and classes. Check out our activities and schedule for updates.
