Kalachakra is a holistic system that incorporates astrology, health, our bodies, our mind and well-being. A healthy body is such an important tool for this practice that it is a tantric downfall to practice austerities and harm your body. In this talk, Khentrul Rinpoche has invited Tulku Lobsang to discuss the importance of working with our physical bodies especially in the Kalachakra Yogas. Tulku Lobsang teaches a Tibetan Yoga practice worldwide and has appeared in National Geographic’s ‘The Story of God’ with Morgan Freeman, demonstrating Tummo practice. He will share how the practice with the subtle body can influence the way we interact with the world and transform our experience. In working with the subtle body, our chakras, channels and drops, we are able to influence and transform the subtle structures of our body and mind.

Khentrul RinpocheNon-Sectarian Master of Kalachakra
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).
Tulku Lobsang Rinpoche
Tulku Lobsang Rinpoche was born in 1976 in Amdo, north-eastern Tibet and began his official monastic education when he entered Sowa Monastery at the young age of six. Five years later, Tulku-la moved to the Nangzi Bon Monastery, the largest Bon Monastery in Tibet. At that time, the monks of the Sowa monastery were looking for the reincarnation of their lama. At the age of 13, Tulku Lobsang Rinpoche was recognized as the 8th reincarnation of the Nyentse Lama.
The young Rinpoche was moved to Amchok Monastery, where he received his formal teachings. Tulku-la then continued his studies in Labrang Monastery. There he deepened his knowledge in Sutra, Medicine and Astrology. In addition to his general schooling in the monastery, a line of scholars in Medicine and Astrology taught Tulku-la privately. The highly respected Lama Gungtang from Amdo instructed him in the teachings of Tantra and gave him the most important initiations. Over the next several years, Tulku-la received general teachings in all eight lineages, and he remains a practitioner of all eight lineages.
Tulku Lobsang had many teachers, but his main teachers were Geshe Samten in Amchok Monastery in eastern Tibet for philosophy, Geshe Jamyang Nyima in Labrang Monastery for medicine and astrology, and Geshe Sherub Nyima in Bon Nangzi Monastery, who was his special astrology teacher. When he was young, in the Sowa Monastery, Geshe Lodrup taught Tulku Lobsang reading, writing, and memorization. Lama Gungtang gave Tulku Lobsang most of the empowerments and initiations – such as Kalachakra empowerments and Mitra Gyatsa, which means 100 Mandala Empowerments. He received medical empowerments, such as Mangnergajama from Geshe Tsukdruk at Labrang Monastery, who also gave him flower and water essence initiations and teachings. Jonang secret Kalachakra traditions were received from Kembo Narshe and Lama Dorje. Bon Dzogchen traditions were given by his uncle Ak Yeshi. Tulku Lobsang’s four personal, private teachers were also reincarnation lamas – Tulku Narke, Tulku Serchen, Tulku Kaynyang and Tulku Tsurmon, all at Amchok Monastery. His root Lama is Tulku Serchen. Tulku Narke was also a very close teacher. He always traveled with Tulku Lobsang in Tibet, cared for the details of daily life, and supervised his practice. Altogether, Tulku Lobsang had 35 main teachers from whom he received instructions and specific empowerments and initiations.
In 1993, at the age of 17, Rinpoche left Tibet for South India to deepen his studies in the Gaden Shartse Monastery. After five years in Gaden Monastery, Tulku-la moved to Dharamsala to pass the Tibetan cultural heritage on to both Tibetans and Westerners.
In 2002, Tulku-la established the medical center Nangten Menlang in Manali, North India. Today, his association Nangten Menlang International is based in Vienna, Austria.
Since the year 2000, Rinpoche has been traveling through Europe, America and Asia sharing his knowledge in order to reduce suffering in the world. Rinpoche bases his teachings on the ancient knowledge of Tantrayana, which is the foundation of both Tibetan Buddhism and Tibetan Medicine. Tulku-la bridges worlds and translates the ancient wisdom of his venerable transmission lineage into practical advice for the present day.
