Online Course: Kalachackra Tsok Commentary and Instructions – Khentrul Rinpoche
All practices on the path to Buddhahood are methods for gathering the accumulations of merit and wisdom and for purifying our obscurations. The Highest Yoga Tantra Kalachakra Tsok offering is an incredibly swift and direct method. The Tsok offering is a practice of limitless Generosity in which we make offerings to all the Buddhas, Deities and Beings while holding the profound view and generation. It is typically done only by students who have taken the Kalachakra Initiation, but Khentrul Rinpoche encourages everyone studying the Kalachakra Ngondro to participate as well. It is not just a practice of offering however; it is a powerful method for purifying our Samaya.
In this course, Khentrul Rinpoche Jamphel Lodrö will give a commentary on the Jonang Kalachakra Tsok text that we use for this practice. This is an excellent chance to deepen your understanding of the meaning of the practice. We will go over how to set this up in your community or at home as well as perform one together. This course includes instructions on setting up the Tsok offering, oral transmission, the text, the commentary, the video guide for the practice and music so you can do this practice in your community. You will have the information you need to chant it in your own language or in Tibetan.

Khentrul Rinpoché Jamphel Lodrö is the founder and spiritual director of Dzokden. Rinpoche is the author of Unveiling Your Sacred Truth, 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).
