This is a beautiful traditional Tibetan Buddhist Monastery. Each Sunday H.H. Dagchen Sakya Rinpoche is there for the Chenrezi Meditation/Practice, which is open to the public. He may also give a short Teaching. Once a month tours of the Shrine Room are given, everyone welcome. ( Be prepared to remove your shoes). Tea and socializing down stairs after Meditation. If you have questions, ask, as no one will come up to you to try to make you accept Buddhism. Lots of classes schduled throughout the month thru the education arm of the monastery in case you are interested.

Sakya Monastery is one of those little known gems in the Greenwood neighborhood of Seattle. Now that Greenwood is coming into its own..take a stroll just one block west from Greenwood Ave to turn the prayers wheels outside this Tibetan Buddhist temple. One Sunday a month, a "Darshan viewing" is given to the public. A guide will explain the history of the temple and give details about the artwork within the temple. See the life size statues, including the triple life size Buddha. The history of the Sakya family is fascinating-they were the first family to move to the US in 1960. After numerous students asked for traditional Buddhist teachings, the temple began. And now, it is quite something to see. If you feel like taking the next step to learn meditation, they offer "Calm Abiding" short and long "sits" on Friday evenings. Check their calendar for specific dates and events. I highly recommend visiting this Seattle treasure-whether you are an out-of-town visitor or an actual Seattleite.
