His Holiness Sakya Trichen In Conversation: Wisdom Podcast
We’re excited to share with you the newest episode of the Wisdom Podcast! Join us for this very special conversation with His Holiness Sakya Trichen, the 41st throne holder of the Sakya school of Tibetan Buddhism.
In this episode, Daniel travels to Tsechen Kunchab Ling in upstate New York to speak with His Holiness about his forthcoming book, a second volume to Freeing the Heart and Mind, published by Wisdom. Both volumes emphasize the necessity of learning the Dharma through the life stories of great Buddhist masters. His Holiness speaks on the practical nature of the sutrayana teachings as outlined in his first book, as well as the life of Mahasiddha Virupa and his key role in the formation of both the Lamdré lineage and the Sakya school at large. His second volume looks at valuable life lessons from the legendary 13th century leader of the Sakya order, Drogön Chögyal Phagpa–namely his relationship with the Mongols and the religious conversion of Kublai Khan. We also hear His Holiness share insights on the nature of samaya in the guru-disciple relationship, as well as his views on restricted teachings and their increased availability in the modern world.
