Online: Innate Kalachakra Empowerment & Teachings with Khentrul Rinpoche
Dzokden Brazil’s Invitation to Rinpoche
Khentrul Rinpoche will visit Brazil for the first time to bestow the Innate Kalachakra Jenang Empowerment and give its precious teachings. This is the realization of an invitation made by Brazilian practitioners before the start of the pandemic. This also celebrates the release of 2 of Rinpoche’s books in the Portuguese language.
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 to 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.
Roadmap to Enlightenment
Rinpoche will give teachings to clarify the vajra yoga path from the Jonang lineage which has rarely been taught in this world outside of Tibet. We can not reach enlightenment if we do not know where we are going and how we can get there. He will illuminate the special karmic connection our earth has with Shambhala and Kalachakra which prophesize the coming of a 2nd Golden Age in our world.

OFFERING for KHENTRUL RINPOCHE
If you wish to show your generosity to Rinpoche’s precious teachings and to his immense effort into spreading the Kalachakra Path worldwide, you can offer Dana to Rinpoche at the Dzokden website here.
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).
