Online: How to Become a Modern Mahasiddha
ABOUT THE PUBLIC TALK
Do you need to run away to a Himalayan cave to practice the highest yogas or become a monastic monk to realize the teachings? What would a modern Mahasiddha do? The ancient Mahasiddha’s played instruments, danced, lived in brothels, and woke up due to such mundane activities as the shattering of Pots. They were known to use real world activities to practice the Dharma. The most profound yogas of the all are the Vajra Yogas of the King of Tantras, Kalachakra. Can you practice these and use the teachings of Kalachakra to help you wake up in everyday life? Rinpoche will explore the idea of how someone could become a mahasiddha in our modern times.

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).
