Kalachakra Statue

“I made one Kalachakra statue that is more expensive than a small house. I made this why? Because all the Kalachakra images in the shops and monastery and everywhere are incorrect. I have never seen one statue or thangka 100% correct. That is indicating that our Kalachakra tantra is almost dying on this earth. That means our connection with Shambhala is very tiny. We need to revive this.”

The Importance of an Authentic Form of the Deity

What do all human beings want? We can guarantee two things, the first one is that we all want happiness and satisfaction. The other thing is that we want to have genuine global peace and harmony. For us to be able to do this, we must go beyond the most superficial level and look deeply at the true causes of our suffering. The Kalachakra System provides us with the wisdom and methods to accomplish this goal. The Kalachakra System, which offers great benefits for our modern world, is unknown by the vast majority of people. The few images and statues that do exist, are often mistaken and are not made in strict accordance with the Kalachakra root text.

In order to bring benefit to future of our world as well as preserving the authenticity of Kalachakra system and practice, Khentrul Rinpoche constructed an authentic 24-Armed Kalachakra statue. This 2.3 meter tall statue was meticulously crafted from copper and gold by a very talented artist working in close collaboration with experts from the Jonang Kalachakra Tradition.

Khentrul Rinpoche spent two years working with scholars, monks, and master carvers to create the perfect version of Kalachakra according to the Root tantric texts. It’s important to have actual form bodies of the Deity to rely on in our world. It helps strengthen our connection with Shambhala and, therefore, helps create conditions for the Golden Age on our earth. If you visit our temple even for a short time to see this statue, you will receive the blessings of the Wheel of Time teachings.

Having an accurate statue, a model in our world, is the first step to practicing the Kalachakra Tantra.

The perfected qualities of generosity, ethical discipline, patience, joyful effort, meditative concentration, and wisdom.

Filled with Relics and Extensive Mantras from All of the Tibetan Buddhist Traditions

Kalachakra Statue Relics
It is customary in Tibetan Buddhist tradition to fill a Buddhist statue with many holy objects of Shakyamuni Buddha, Saints, Gurus, Bodhisattvas and Yogis to make it more powerful and
beneficial for those who see it.
When a statue is finished, its hollow interior and all cavities inside the image are filled with
mantra rolls, relics, jewels and semi-precious jewels, incense and other precious objects.
Specific areas are filled in a traditional way with each part having a special method of placing
the relics and performing mantra. When each part of the body has been filled with relics and the
chanting completed the base of the statue is sealed with a metal or wooden plate, which usually
carries an image of a double vajra. Lastly, lamas give life to the statue with prayers and
Relics can include bone or corpse relics of a holy person or fragments of close physical
possessions, such as robes and clothing. They can also include certain very blessed mantras
found in sutras and tantras, known as Dharmakaya relics (the actual presence of the
enlightened mind in the world). Others include fragments of sacred sutras or manuscripts that
had been hand written by a holy being.
Another relic known as a Tsa Tsa is a form of Buddhist art, (usually a small statue), that has
flourished for centuries in Tibet and is generally made from clay or earth. On very special
occasions, the clay or earth is mixed with some of the remains of a very holy being. This is
believed to bring incredible blessings.
The most visually unique relics in the Buddhist tradition, however, are the pearl-like crystals
found among the cremation ashes of Buddhist masters. The relics are considered a result of the
master’s special compassion and wisdom, and are often enshrined in stupas.
Here is a list of the incredible relics and holy objects that have been authentically placed inside
the Kalachakra statue by senior Lamas of the Jonang tradition inTibet. In addition to this, many
tantric Buddhist rituals and millions of mantras have been recited to bless this holy Kalachakra

small piece of his shoe and a hair relic and pieces of Taranatha’s clothing. There are also two
