His Holiness Sakya Trizin’s previous visits to the Dechen Community: 1995

His Holiness Sakya Trizin’s fifth visit to our dharma community came in the summer of 1995, a few weeks after the visit of His Holiness’ sister, H.E. Jetsun Kushok. His Holiness gave a public teaching in Bristol, followed by the initiation of Green Tara from the lineage of Atisha and the initiation of Za’i Yum Chenmo (the Great Mother of the Planets). This deity, who is particularly associated with the Khon lineage counters malign astrological influences.
