Event Navigation

Join Khentrul Rinpoche for a most exceptional retreat at the temple complex of Borobudur, a 9th-century Vajrayana Buddhist temple in Magelang, Central Java, Indonesia.

Borobudur is regarded as one of the greatest Buddhist monuments in the world. The temple consists of nine stacked platforms, six square and three circular, topped by a central dome. The temple is decorated with 2,672 relief panels and 504 Buddha statues. The central dome is surrounded by 72 Buddha statues, each seated inside a perforated stupa. The monument is both a shrine to the Lord Buddha and a place for Buddhist pilgrimage.< ?p>

Khentrul Rinpoche recently visited Borobudur and was overwhelmed by the majesty and power of the stupa. He believes that Borobudur is a Kalachakra mandala and quite possibly the exact location where Sakyamuni Buddha first taught the Kalachakra Tantra. For this reason, he decided to give a Kalachakra empowerment followed by a retreat at this most holy site so that we may connect with the great blessings of this beautiful stupa to enrich our practice.

Don’t miss this special opportunity to practice the Kalachakra Tantra at this beautiful temple site only 200 metres from the holy Borobudur stupa.

Khentrul Rinpoche will teach foundation Kalachakra practice classes and meditations to prepare us for the empowerment. Rinpoche will clarify our understanding of Kalachakra Tantra and help us to penetrate a more profound view of the practice. We will receive further guidance on how to embrace the Kalachakra Tantra practice for life.

The tour includes:

  • 11 night stay in Java, Indonesia
  • Daily teachings and guided meditations by Spiritual Director, Khentrul Rinpoche and Senior students
  • Accommodation, breakfast, lunch & dinner
  • Sightseeing to local temples in the area

Details of the retreat will be available over the next couple of weeks.
