SAKYA COLLEGE FOR NUNS

 

"Buddhist philosophical texts are very deep and profound.  In order to understand them, thorough study is required.
Therefore, the establishment of a nuns' college is very important".     His Holiness Sakya Trizin  26/09/2009 

 

This beautiful premises was offered by Venerable Khenpo Gyatso (previous principal of Sakya College,
presently private tutor to His Eminence Dhungsey Asanga Rinpoche) in 2009 to be used
as a Buddhist educational institute of higher learning to the nuns.
