Dechen Foundation US branch has had a centre in Los Angeles since 2010.
Sakya Buddhist Centre LA was established by Lama Jampa Thaye in 2010. It was given the name Sakya Samten Ling, which means ‘The place of meditation of the Sakyas’. The centre transmits the authentic teachings of the 900 year old Sakya lineage of Tibetan Buddhism and is honoured to have hosted visits from the supreme heads of the Sakya tradition. Lama Jampa Thaye also visits the centre to give teachings and initiations several times each year. Experienced members of the centre also run weekly classes on Buddhism and meditation.For more information about Dechen US visit the website
