Sakyong Lineage

The Sakyong Lineage is the family line which holds, protects, and teaches the principle of basic goodness, which is the fundamental ground of enlightened society.

The word Sakyong means “earth protector” and refers to a lineage of leaders and teachers who over centuries have helped the world achieve peace during times of heightened conflict. More broadly, it points to every individual’s potential to act with courage and compassion throughout their lives.
