Sachen Foundation

Preserving the Lord Buddha’s Teachings through Studies, Practice & Education


Guided by the belief that every human life is precious with unlimited potential, Sachen Foundation works to support the collective aspirations of our spiritual teachers and generous donors, to help transform lives and communities through Dharma education and publication.

Funds will be granted to three areas prioritized by His Holiness the 42nd Sakya Trizin at this initial stage:

  1. Buddhist monastic education of monks and nuns, especially in the Sakya tradition;
  2. Buddhist education of children and lay practitioners through the development of curriculum and educational materials; and
  3. Preservation of Buddhist teachings, and the Sakya tradition in particular, through archiving, publishing, and translating teachings and practice texts.
