Distinguishing the Purelands of Shambhala and Amitabha
Khentrul Rinpoche’s root Guru, Lama Lobsang Trinlé an incredible Kalachakra master who taught the teachings of Shambhala, also did an Amitabha practice daily for his entire life. He said whoever had devotion to him and Amitabha would surely reach the Pureland. These two Purelands are both incredibly powerful spaces with different approaches to reach them. Khentrul Rinpoche will help us distinguish what they are, what are the benefits of reaching them, and what are the similarities and differences. This is a clarifying public talk to give a foundation for the 1 day teaching retreat on November 14th. During the retreat, Rinpoche will give commentary on 5 prayers to Amitabha and 3 prayers for Shambhala.

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).
