Online and In-Person: Moon Cycle Mantra – Shambhala Dharma Kings Practice
Drop-in on the New Moon, 6.30 – 8:00 PM (Vienna Time – CET / CEST)
Session Language: English
The Dharma Kings of the Sublime Realm of Shambhala were able to skillfully introduce their realm to the Kalachakra teachings. Their efforts went far beyond only alleviating biased views towards differences between people such as different races, conflicting religious approaches, classes, and so forth. They also helped to propagate and establish the Kalachakra teachings, and thus began to transform their society into a pure Bodhisattva realm, ever happy and peaceful, in which spiritual practice flourishes. In contrast to wordly kings from the past, who focused on protecting and expanding their territories, the Shambhala Dharma Kings are manifestations of very high level Bodhisattvas such as Vajrapani, acting as great human leaders out of their compassion and wisdom.
This is an excellent opportunity to become familiar with the unique practice of this extraordinary mind terma revealed by Rinpoche and connect with the Sublime Realm of Shambhala. It is also a precious opportunity to cultivate a connection and interact with followers around the globe working to create conditions for the Golden Age of Peace and Happiness to flourish on Earth.
This practice can be performed by those who have received the associated empowerment or, alternatively, the 1st set of Kalachakra Empowerments bestowed by Shar Khentrul Rinpoche. Those without any of these empowerments may also join the practice – in this case, we ask that you please write to [email protected] beforehand to announce your interest. You are welcome!

He was fortunate to met his precious Guru Jamphel Lodrö (Khentrul Rinpoche) in She Drup Ling-Austria in 2015, from whom he has been receiving a vast and profound wealth of Dharma, since the foundational subjects until the Kalachakra Vajra Yogas. Since 2016 he has been teaching Lu Jong (Tibetan Healing Yoga). In 2018 he received authorisation from Rinpoche to teach the Kalachakra-Ngöndro. Recently he reduced his professional activities as a composer in order to serve the altruistic ideals of his Guru as a full-time volunteer at our Dzokden community. He serves the community a.o. as a translator, editor and coordinator for the translations’ groups for both German and Portuguese languages.
