Khentrul Rinpoche has kindly agreed to discuss how to prepare for the 4 Higher Empowerments for the benefits of lay practitioners world wide. The 4 Higher Empowerments of Kalachakra are considered the gateway to the completion stage. They are traditionally given before the students learn the 1st yoga. In older times, the masters in the Jonang lineage would only bestow this empowerment privately upon the students who were ready for it. Currently this empowerment is often given before the 3 Isolations retreat which the monks would do on their 3 year retreat before starting the 6 yogas.
Often times students who attend many empowerment ceremonies, collect the empowerments and don’t have clarity on what you are supposed to do at each step. Rinpoche will explain what his expectations are for students after they have received the Kalachakra Initiation to prepare themselves for the Higher Empowerment. He will give a flexible approach to understanding preparation. This is a good time to ask all your questions about this process. This is the first time ever Rinpoche has agreed to do a session on this and has agreed to do it publicly so as to benefit as many aspiring practitioners as possible.
The Higher Empowerment is by bestowed by Khentrul Rinpoche by application only. Because of the pandemic, Rinpoche has not been able to travel to give this for the past 2 years. We have an application form open for students to request the empowerment. If enough qualified students are ready for this, Rinpoche may consider giving this later in the year in a private online zoom.

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).
