This page is for registration in South Africans only. Please register for other countries and languages.
This is an incredibly rare and precious opportunity to receive the Highest Yoga Tantra Initiation Online. Due to the global pandemic and the very unusual circumstances we are facing, Rinpoche has agreed to give the Kalachakra empowerment online this year as many people are not able to travel to Hong Kong for it. 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.
EMPOWERMENT GUIDE BOOK
We will provide online registrants with an eBook to follow along with step-by-step which is available in English.

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.
Kalachakra for World Peace
Buddha Shakyamuni taught the Kalachakra Tantra to the Kings of Shambhala at the same time the heart sutra was taught. In it, there is a clear prophecy for world peace to arise on this earth. Come create the conditions to usher in the Golden Age of Global peace and harmony.
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.
HOW THE ONLINE EMPOWERMENT WILL WORK
1) Register for each attendee that will be receiving the empowerment. Choose your preferred language. You will receive a confirmation email.
2) Before the empowerment, you will receive information on some simple supplies you should get to help make the experience as authentic as possible. If you are not able to get them all don’t worry. They are symbolic and you can still receive the empowerment. More important you must understand what is happening. Just attending an empowerment does not mean you receive it. You must know what is going on. To ensure everyone will receive the empowerment, Rinpoche will kindly make his instruction booklet available to you as an eBook so you can follow along so you know exactly what is happening. You are not allowed to share this program book with anyone else or give them access to the empowerment. This is private for your personal use. Rinpoche typically gives the eBook out the night before but if this is a technical problem for you (you can’t read an eBook and be on zoom at the same time) please indicate on the registration form so we can work to accommodate you.
3) You will receive access to the zoom for each of the sessions. While Khentrul Ripoche wants the attendees there for every session, we have indicated the absolute required sessions so as not to have to a lot of emails about special circumstances. That said, he would prefer you are there for all of them.

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).
