Land of Shambhala Consecration Retreat w/ Khentrul Rinpoche & HE Rigzin Chenpo
May 7 - May 8Free
Corona Virus Update
We are working on a way to make this event possible either as a smaller in person or in an online format. Due to the Corona virus we are unsure of what that will look like. Please stay tuned to see the details.
You’re invited to join us for the free overnight camping retreat. On the most auspicious full-moon day of the year, Kalachakra New Year, which is the anniversary when the Buddha turned the wheel of dharma and taught the Kalachakra tantra for the first time, Khentrul Rinpoché and HE Rigzin Chenpo Rinpoché will consecrate the Tibetan Rimé Buddhist Institute’s glorious new retreat property the Land of Shambhala.
The consecration of the grounds involves many rituals to make the space ready for a Kalachakra temple and retreat buildings to be put on it. Through many rituals that include offering to the local deities, burying a treasure vase and planting the first of our trees from the Wish-Fulfilling Tree project we will make the ground ready for sacred activities. In the evening when merit is multiplied a million times over, we will dedicate the mantras that have been accumulated by students all over the world and partake in a Kalachakra Tsok Feast offering.
Sponsorship OpportunitiesTraditionally, people sponsor prayer rituals with aspirations for clearing obstacles, a better rebirth for their loved ones, long life, success, peace, and enlightenment for all beings. Sponsoring spiritual events related to Nagpa Dawa generates merit multiplied 100,000 times for yourself and your loved ones.

About Khentrul Rinpoche
Shar Khentrul Jamphel Lodrö Rinpoché spent the first 20 years of his life herding yak and chanting mantras on the plateaus of Tibet. Inspired by the bodhisattvas, he left his family to study in a variety of monasteries under the guidance of over twenty-five masters in all the Tibetan Buddhist traditions. Due to his non-sectarian approach, he earned himself the title of Rimé (unbiased) Master and was identified as the reincarnation of the famous Kalachakra Master Ngawang Chözin Gyatso. While at the core of his teachings is the recognition that there is great value in the diversity of all spiritual traditions found in this world; he focuses on the Jonang-Shambhala Kalachakra tradition. Since 2014, he has traveled to more than thirty countries guiding students to realize their own sacred truth of limitless potential through a clear, systematic step-by-step presentation of the Kalachakra Path to enlightenment.
