ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — In the City of Holy Faith (well, what did you think Santa Fe meant?) the Catholic Church is often seen as the guiding religious light.
Historically, that’s been true, but seekers coming here have branched into a plethora of spiritual pursuits. And some of those people, including a thriving Tibetan community, have enriched a local Buddhist presence. That might explain how Santa Fe ended up on the path of H.H. Sakya Trizin, head of the Sakya Lineage of Tibetan Buddhism. (New York, Minneapolis and Seattle are among his other stops.)
He will present his teachings May 6 at the Santa Fe Community Convention Center, with tickets offered for the morning session ($25/$15 students), the afternoon session ($35, $25), the full day ($50, $40) and an appreciation dinner ($40, $75 per couple).
