KSMR Nepal teaching

Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche is the holder of the Sakyong Family Lineage.

Sakyong” is a Tibetan royal title meaning “earth protector.” The spiritual family lineage of the Sakyongs is held by successive generations of  “dharma holders” who are descendants of the legendary king of Ling, Gesar Norbu Dradül.

The spiritual family lineage of the Sakyongs holds a unique confluence of teaching streams rooted in the three yanas of Shakyamuni Buddha, the tantric teachings of Padmasambhava, the enlightened wisdom of the Rigden Kings of Shambhala, and the warrior teachings of King Gesar of Ling.
