Take Desire as Your Path with Vishvamata Jenang: Embracing the Divine Feminine aspect of Kalachakra
This is a paid event and will be available both In-person and Online.
In conjunction with the release of Shar Khentrul Rinpoche’s new book, the Tantric Path of Desire, Dzokden and Tibet House US, present a day of intermediate level Buddhist teachings on how to take desire as the path in relation to the Kalachakra Tantra. Tantra is a rich practice that is particularly suited to our time where people are heavily engaged in desires and distraction. In Tibetan Buddhism the tantric path of Vajrayana, engages directly with our desires and emotions in all aspects of our waking and sleeping daily lives as a potent force and technology for personal transformation and rapid awakening.
Part of this path of transformation to enlightenment requires the harmonization and unification of female and male energies within ourselves. The Yab-Yum deity of the Kalachakra mandala is often referred to as Kalachakra but is actually the inseparable union of the ultimate masculine Kalachakra, in union with the ultimate feminine, Vishvamata. Their combined qualities represent the ultimate love, wisdom and compassion fused into immutable bliss and empty form. While tantra does include teachings involving sexuality as a skillful means for transformation, there are more ways in which we can embrace the true energies of the female and male aspect within ourselves to transform our world. Khentrul Rinpoche will give teachings to clarify what these aspects are and various ways to work with them.
Khentrul Rinpoche has agreed to bestow the Vishvamata Jenang empowerment to his students for the first time at the request of Robert Thurman.
While Khentrul Rinpoche welcomes everyone to join who wishes to practice Kalachakra, this teachings is best suited to students who have some basic understanding of the Vajrayana buddhist path, experience with Guru and Deity yoga as well as a flexible mind.

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).
