In this teaching, Rinpoche will present for the first time his new concise Kalachakra Sadhana called “Secret Dakini Treasure”. He will give the oral transmission and oral commentary. He composed this sadhana under very auspicious secret conditions. In order to make sure that the English translation would be in accord with the meaning, Rinpoche himself sketched an own English translation which was later on carefully developed and edited by the Dzokden Sangha.
This incredibly poetic practice text presents all the path until Enlightenment concisely. It focuses on the ultimate meaning of the different preliminary practices. Some sections which are extensive in the other Kalachakra Sadhanas are presented here very concisely, whereas others appear in a more comprehensive, non-traditional way.
The “Secret Dakini Treasure” is especially recommended for those practising wensum (Three Isolations) and the First Vajra Yoga. For this reason Rinpoche wishes that practitioners planning to attend the longer wensum retreats attend this transmission beforehand.
Who can attend?
1) All who have received the Four Higher Empowerments with Rinpoche or, if not:
2) Any stable Dharma practitioner who has done the Ngöndro extensively in any tradition and has the aspiration to receive the Higher Empowerments.
In both cases they should know quite well the Kalachakra sadhanas “The Divine Ladder” and “Enlightening the Heart”. To get to know Rinpoche’s flexible approach to the Ngöndro, look at the chapter 14 of “Unveiling Your Sacred Truth — Book 2”. For online resources visit: https://dzokden.org/getting-started
If you do not have the requirements yet, Rinpoche encourages you to prepare yourself as much as you can along the year in order to be able to attend.
Khentrul RinpocheJonang Kalachakra & Rimé Master
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).
