Tsechen Kunchab Ling, Temple of All-Encompassing Great Compassion, is the temple seat of His Holiness Sakya Trizin in the United States. His Holiness established the temple in 2001 in order to strengthen the Dharma in North America by creating a place where both renunciates and lay people could gather to practice the Dharma and to devote themselves to study, contemplation, and meditation. He appointed Venerable Khenpo Kalsang Gyaltsen as Vice President and Abbot in charge of the temple.
