Online Kalachakra Empowerment
Due to the global pandemic and the very unusual circumstances we are facing, Rinpoche has agreed to give the empowerment online this year. He does not give empowerment online normally and is making a huge exception.
We hope this helps create the conditions for peace and harmony to flourish around the world. The empowerment ceremony will take place in a meditative atmosphere over a few days. Please make sure to be present for all the sessions in your timezone. It includes a ceremony to spread prayers for peace and harmony around the globe, ritual dances, and the unveiling of a 3d version of the Jonang Kalachakra Mandala. You will be guided in a clear step-by-step way through empowerment so that you can understand what you are receiving. Through lecture, discussion, meditation, mantra, and ritual offerings, form a deep connection to your own inner realm of peace and harmony.
WHO CAN ATTEND
There are no prerequisites. This path is flexible; it allows us to engage with it wherever we are at. Everyone who has a desire can learn to practice the profound path of Kalachakra, the pinnacle of the Buddha’s teaching. Empowerment can be taken as a blessing or empowerment.
Anyone who has a sincere aspiration to take the empowerment and registers can attend online. You must be there for all the sessions. Just attending empowerment does not mean you receive it. You must understand and know what is going on. Rinpoche will kindly make his instruction booklet available to you as an eBook so you can follow along.
Kalachakra brings peace to oneself and the world as we learn to harmonize our environment with our body & mind. Kalachakra, which means wheel of time, transcends religions time, space and perceived reality. It is the essence that makes up our very nature. It harmonizes the cosmic, with our internal system and the enlightened mind. Unlike other Buddhist teachings, Kalachakra is very detailed giving insight and direction to help anyone of any religious tradition realize their true nature. This teaching helps us move past habitual limitations to unleash our limitless potential of love & compassion.
COMPLETE SYSTEM TO ENLIGHTENMENT
The Tibetan Buddhist Jonang Lineage specializes in the complete path that guides students in a clear step-by-step system to enlightenment. It is known specifically for upholding the 6 vajra yogas through which many enlightened masters have transitioned. It has rarely been taught in its entirety to lay (non-monastic) practitioners in the West. Most of the Jonang Yogi’s have decided to remain practicing in their caves and monasteries in the Himalayas. Khentrul Rinpoche has made it his life’s mission to bring these teachings to the west in English. He hopes to create the conditions for both female and male practitioners living in their daily lives to realize the heart essence of these profound teachings.
Khentrul Rinpoché is very genuine focusing on catalyzing the transformation of the authentic aspirations of his students. He makes this rich & complex ancient wisdom accessible so that anyone can engage with it more easily, at their own capacity, in all areas of their life.

Khentrul RinpochéJonang Kalachakra & Rimé Master
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).
