Open to All Students who wish to Practice Deity Yoga

This year Khentrul Rinpoche did not offer the Kalachakra Empowerment Wang online. Due to the request of many students who wish to prepare to be eligible for the Vajra Yoga Kalachakra completion stage practice, Rinpoche has kindly agreed to bestow the Innate Kalachakra Jenang. 

In this weekend retreat, Rinpoche will introduce the Innate Kalachakra Deity to students who are completely new to the practice and offer more extensive information on the Kalachakra mandala for those continuing to deepen their practice.  While the Jonang lineage emphasizes the completion stage practice and does not focus on the extensive generation stage practices, they do have them.

This teaching cycle will gradually introduce you to the Kalachakra mandala and the more extensive Sadhanas for the Sahaja Kalachakra. 

By receiving the Innate Kalachakra Jenang Empowerment, you will have Khentrul Rinpoche’s blessing and permission to engage in the preliminary practices of the Highest Yoga Tantra, Kalachakra, including self-visualization as the Deity. This concise empowerment helps us connect with the essence of the Kalachakra deity.

Innate Kalachakra (Sahaja Kalachakra) is the main deity practice emphasized by the Jonang Lineage and the gateway to the completion stage. This lineage emphasizes the completion stage practice of the profound 6 Vajra yogas. As such, they choose to keep this deity practice simple and accessible in order to guide people towards their non-conceptual state as swiftly as possible.

This indestructible Vajra yoga Path can lead practitioners to achieve enlightenment in a single lifetime or to attain a rebirth in the Bodhisattva pure realm of Shambhala. Just connecting with this empowerment plants the seed for your future enlightenment whether you choose to activate them in this life or the next.
