10-week Course: Jonang Kalachakra Ngondro with Khentrul Rinpoche
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.
THE KALACHAKRA PATH
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).
THE KALACHAKRA NGÖNDRO COURSE
Rinpoche plans to approach the Kalachakra Ngöndro this time from a quite different approach, focusing on the Shambhala lineage. Short overview:
- What does one mean by different karmic propensities and manifestations?
- How to change perspective and not experience the Kaliyuga?
- How can Kalachakra help us to transform our human birth into something very precious?
- How to avoid falling back into six realms of suffering.
- Eliminating karmic propensities through the lens of tantric methods.
- The meaning of Dharma Kings and Kalkis.
- How do the compassionate Kalk Kings transform the world?
- Understanding how the Kalkis and other enlightened beings manifest as Dharma teachers.
- Learning how to form the perfect relationship with Dharma teachers and the incredible benefits of it.
- The connection between Guru and student: the key of the tantric practice.

Khentrul Rinpoché Jamphel Lodrö is the founder and director of Dzokden. Rinpoche is the author of Unveiling Your Sacred Truth 1, 2, and 3, The Great Middle Way: Clarifying the Jonang View of Other-Emptiness, A Happier Life, and The Hidden Treasure of the Profound Path.
Rinpoche 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 tradition. Kalachakra (wheel of time) teachings contain profound methods to harmonize our external environment with the inner world of body and mind, ultimately bringing about the golden age of Peace and Harmony (Dzokden).
