Everyone who has a desire can learn to practice the profound path of Kalachakra, the pinnacle of the Buddha’s teaching. This path is flexible; which allows us to engage with it wherever we are at. Kalachakra brings peace to oneself & the world as we learn to harmonize our environment with our body & mind unleashing our limitless potential of love & compassion.
Kalachakra, which means wheel of time, transcends religions time, space and perceived reality. It is the essence that makes up our very nature. It harmonizes the cosmic, with our internal system and the enlightened mind. Unlike other buddhist teachings, Kalachakra is very detailed giving insight and direction to help anyone of any religious tradition realize their true nature.
The Tibetan Buddhist Jonang Lineage specializes in the complete path that guide students in a clear step-by-step system to enlightenment. It is known specifically for upholding the 6 vajra yogas through which many enlightened masters have evaporated into an enlightened rainbow body. It has rarely been taught in its entirety to lay (non-monastic) practitioners in the West. Most of the Jonang Yogi’s have decided to remain practicing in their caves and monasteries in the Himalayas. Khentrul Rinpoche, inspired by His Holiness the Dalai Lama’s effort to initiate so may millions of students, has made it his life’s mission to bring these teachings to west in English. He hopes to create the conditions for both female and male practitioners living in their daily lives to create the conditions to realize the heart essence of these profound teachings.
Khentrul Rinpoché is very genuine focusing on catalyzing the transformation of the authentic aspirations of his students. He makes this rich & complex ancient wisdom accessible so that anyone can engage with it more easily, at their own capacity, in all areas of their life. In this day long workshop you will gain an understanding of the jonang Kalachakra path to enlightenment and how you can begin to engage with it wherever you are at.
The Jonang Kalachakra Tantra is the most comprehensive system within Tibetan Buddhism, valued by all schools as ‘the King of Tantras’. While many schools may practice the teachings and give initiations into the teachings, the Jonang is the tradition that focuses on the entire Kalachakra system, including the highest stages of the profound and unique completion practice known as the “Six Vajra Yogas”.
