One of the core activities of the Foundation is to establish study, meditation and retreat centers where students can receive teachings and practice under the precious guidance of Jetsun Kushok Rinpoche.
Currently the Foundation is supporting Rinpoche’s meditation center Sakya Tsechen Thubten Ling in Richmond, British Columbia. Founded in 1989, the center needs to expand its facilities to include a Tara shrine, classrooms and a large meditation hall.
The Foundation is also supporting Rinpoche’s retreat center, Sakya Kachod Choling. Inaugurated in 1986, the center is nestled among the beautiful woods of San Juan Island in Washington State. The plan is to build facilities to allow for more extended solitary and group retreats to realize a long time wish of Jetsun Kushok Rinpoche.
