The Sakya Retreat Facility is the vision of H.E Gyana Vajra Rinpoche to establish a mountain retreat facility for medium to long term retreatants. The facility is envisaged as providing individual retreat rooms and facilities for the support of retreatants, for both senior Sakya monks and lay retreatants. This facility will fulfil the wishes for a retreat place of His Holiness the 41st Sakya Trizin, His Eminence Ratna Vajra Rinpoche and many aspiring retreatants. Criteria for the land would include excellent views, good size, cool in the summer, isolated yet near to Rajpur, Dehradun.
Retreats are an integral part of Buddhist practice and an essential element in the path to realisation of the Ultimate Truth. The provision of suitable places for retreat under the guiding auspices of great masters is therefore one of the most valuable ways to contribute towards the development of sangha and the ongoing viability of the dharma in this troubled world. The work of creating the foundation for such meritorious activity involves the resources of many people. We hope to make it possible for sangha members to contribute to this project in a variety of ways.
