Samye is the namesake of the Dharma activities of Kyabgön Phakchok Rinpoche.
In eighth century Tibet, the tantric master Guru Padmasambhava, the Dharma-king Trisong Deutsen and the abbot Śāntarakita established Samye monastery. Guru Padmasambhava’s mastery of Buddhist teachings was perfectly complete and thus he is often referred to as a second Buddha. Samye monastery ushered in an era of unparalleled spiritual mastery. The timeless wisdom that was first promulgated by Padmasambhava passed from master to disciple in an unbroken lineage and this continues to this very day. Along the way untold numbers of students became realized masters of the tradition in their own right and even more found that this ancient wisdom transformed their lives.
Samye became a beacon of wisdom, compassion, and dignity in our world. Thus, for this reason, Samye is the auspicious name of our sangha’s Dharma activities. Inspired by the kindness of past masters, we have the idea to share these aspirations in a modern and accessible way through this online platform.
