It is confirmed that HH Sakya Trizin is giving a complete Lam Dre teaching in Taiwan this coming summer.
It’s a one-month teaching from June 15 to July 15. The registration fee is less than $200 US dollars, and you get $70 back afterwards if you attend the entire teaching.
There are quite a few Sakya centers and students in Taiwan, so it won’t be a problem to get assistance finding a place/ hotel to stay for one month.
And I know HH Sakya Trizin always gives teachings in English whenever he visits Taiwan. Therefore language won’t be a problem either.
Here’s the link to the website (just the Chinese version, I’m sure the English version will be ready in a few days): http://www.hhtwcenter.org/notice/2012/schedule.htm
Please forward this message to Sakya students if that pleases you. This is a confirmed information. Anybody interested in attending it can call to the center and communicate with the house representative (or lama) directly. The Vajrayana Sakya Manjusri Center is the head Sakya office authorized by HH Sakya Trizin himself. http://www.hhtwcenter.org/aboutas.htm

Let me know if there’s any further questions.
