The Trip Leaders





Ven. Tenzin Yignyen was born in Tibet. In 1969, he entered Namgyal Monastery, the personal monastery of His Holiness, the Dalai Lama, in Dharamsala, India. Here, he studied monastic ritual and philosophy, and was ordained as a monk by His Holiness, the 14th Dalai Lama. In 1985 he received the monastery's highest degree, "Master of Sutra and Tantra" with the highest honor, which is equivalent to a Ph.D. degree. In 1993, he was invited to Gandan Thekcheling Monastery in Ulaan Baatar, Mongolia, where he taught Kalachakra tantra and mandala construction for one and a half years. Tenzin was selected in 1995 to teach at Namgyal Monastery's North American Seat in Ithaca, N.Y. He has since remained in the United States, providing instruction in tantric ritual, Buddhist philosophy and Tibetan Buddhist sacred art forms. For the past nine years, Tenzin has been professor of Tibetan Buddhist studies and sand mandala painting at Hobart and William Smith Colleges in Geneva, N.Y.



Hon. Anthony Sadasiva, from his early childhood, embarked on a spiritual journey encompassing the world's major religous doctrines while living a monastic life. Sadasiva teaches yoga sadhana, training programs, eastern philosophy to those with all religous backgrounds and creeds. After studying the works of Swami Sivananda of Rishikesh, and meeting/ residing with many living Saints, he furthered his study directly with Swami Vishnu Devananda until his Jalasamadhi. Sadasiva, shares his gift of knowledge, incorporating his numerous contacts by developing highly acclaimed International Festivals, pilgrimages and retreats to further universal spiritual teachings, education, meditation and world peace throughout the world. His missions are supported by world leaders and spiritual clerics alike. 


Our unique Mongolia Pilgrimage will integrate Buddhist teachings with yoga lineages from the Indian tradition, that historically have been practiced in ancient Mongolia and are little known. In our daily itinerary, we will teach and practice meditation, in conjunction with the ancient spiritual sciences such that will include self-transforming physical and mental exercises.  Through these self-purification techniques one will have learned the ability to develop extraordinary control over both mind and body as a path towards inner freedom and peace. All levels of participants welcomed and encouraged!
