This is online and in-Person.

Traditionally in the monasteries the senior students help teach the preliminary practices for the Lamas. This may be the last time Khentrul Rinpoche teaches the Ngöndro series in detail as our future Kalachakra Ngöndro program will be taught by his senior students. Do not miss this special chance to learn directly from the Vajra Master.


In this time of considerable conflict and strife, the practice of Kalachakra is said to be particularly effective. As these teachings arose from the spiritual realm of Shambhala, they are closely linked to the cultivation of peace and harmony. These teachings are exceedingly rare in this world and therefore it is very difficult to encounter them, let alone in a language that you can understand. While many people have taken Kalachakra Initiations from great masters such as H.H. the Dalai Lama, instructions for how to exactly practice have been very limited. 

The instructions for these practices were originally taught by the Buddha Shakyamuni to the Dharma King of Shambhala where they were preserved until eventually being introduced into India around the tenth century and soon afterwards into Tibet. With the extraordinary methods of the Kalachakra completion stage practices, known as the Six Vajra Yogas, it is possible to attain complete enlightenment within a single human lifetime. While the Six Vajra Yogas are the main practice of the Kalachakra Path, to be qualified to engage in these practices, one must first spend time focusing on the Preliminary Practices (Ngöndro).


Rinpoche plans to approach the Kalachakra Ngöndro this time from a quite different approach, focusing on the Shambhala lineage. Short overview:

  1. What does one mean by different karmic propensities and manifestations?
  2. How to change perspective and not experience the Kaliyuga?
  3. How can Kalachakra help us to transform our human birth into something very precious?
  4. How to avoid falling back into six realms of suffering. 
  5. Eliminating karmic propensities through the lens of tantric methods.
  6. The meaning of Dharma Kings and Kalkis. 
  7. How do the compassionate Kalk Kings transform the world?
  8. Understanding how the Kalkis and other enlightened beings manifest as Dharma teachers.
  9. Learning how to form the perfect relationship with Dharma teachers and the incredible benefits of it.
  10. The connection between Guru and student: the key of the tantric practice.
