Online: 2021 Kalachakra Empowerment

Online: 2021 Kalachakra Empowerment

By very special request of a group in New York, Rinpoche has kindly agreed to put the Kalachakra Empowerment online. We will livestreaming the empowerment in zoom to registered attendees only from Australia. The pandemic has continued much longer than we would have thought and students can not travel.

This page is for South African and African Registration only. For all other countries click here. 

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.

We will provide online registrants with an eBook to follow along with step-by-step which is available in English, Chinese, Italien, Spanish, Portuguese, Hungarian, Romanian, Mongolian, and French

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.

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.

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.

You can join the empowerment without any special preparation. The most important thing you will need during the empowerment is Bodhicitta, the aspiration to liberate all sentient beings. If you wish to prepare, the best preparation is to learn and practice the Ngondro to connect with the lineage, the masters and cultivate Bodhicitta and merit. Khentrul Rinpoche is currently teaching a Kalachakra Ngondro course from May 1 – July 17 that you can join at anytime.

It’s customary at the end of empowerment for students to make an offering of Dana to the guru. As this is an online event, you can make the offering of Dana to Rinpoche here.
