: Hi All,

: I'm moving early next year and was hoping to continue my buddhist studies at a nearby dharma centre (near to where I am moving). The only problem (if it really is one) is that this centre follows the Sakya tradition of which I know very little. Up until now I have been almost completely caught up in the Geluk tradition and am not sure in which ways the two might vary.

: So I guess my question is...

: Can anyone tell me anything about the Sakya tradition and/or how it may vary from the Geluk tradition?

: Thanks for helping with my homwork :)!

: Love to All,
: Shane

Hi, Shane.

I am initiated in the Sakya sect. The menbers have
collected enough funds to build a Tibetan temple.
It is the only one in South East Asia.
It is named "The Singapore Buddha Sasana Society".
(Sakya Tenphel Ling, meaning Sakya teaching centre).
There are two Tibetan resident monks.
In Singapore the are 3 main sects, Gelupa, Sakyapa,
and Karmapa. All aspiring to learn Vajrayana will
attend teachings from all these 3 sects.
But the rituals practices differ among them.

So teachings is the same.

U should join. Opportunity comes only once.
