History of Kalachakra and Shambhala in Mongolia

The Mongolian interest in Shambhala is closely connected to the spread and rise in popularity of the Kalachakra teachings throughout history in the region. The Divine Kingdom of Shambhala as described in the Kalachakra tantra has significant links to the Gobi desert of Mongolia, where you will find Dvanaraja’s Shambhala land. Mongolians consider Shambhala Land to be an energy portal symbolically linked to the sublime realm of Shambhala.In this talk, Vesna will bring to life the rich history of Kalachakra and Shambhala in Mongolia and its unique features. This was an enriching talk and Q&A session with Vesna.

A Better World – Kalachakra Prophecy and the Coming Golden Age

In strong and shaky times, where everything is changing extremely rapidly, we recognise it’s essential that we gain a greater understanding of the purpose and potential of our personal and collective evolution. There are very few singular spiritual paths or concepts able to bring a full spectrum wisdom and clarity to give us direction and confidence that everything is going to be OKAY and something totally extraordinary is unfolding. Imagine, that in ‘ reality’ as uncomfortable as things may seem we are being prepared for a Golden Age. This is a huge thing, and is very real. So here is a question for you…What do you understand The Golden Age to actually be?


This is an invitation to receive the blessing of blessings that will help you rest in Natural Great Peace from the exhausted mind beaten helplessly by karma and neurotic thoughts.


Rinpoche as he is fondly known, is an adept on teaching the Kalachakra System in a really special vivid way that we can have a deeper understanding of the reality of Shambhala and how vast amounts of Beings attained Buddhahood and live in a perfected state that is in fact our primordial innate nature.

About Khentrul Rinpoche

Khentrul Rinpoché Jamphel Lodrö is the founder and spiritual director of Dzokden. 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).

Kalachakra Yoga Practice: Working with the Subtle Body

Tulku Lobsang Rinpoche in discussion with Khentrul Rinpoche.

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 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.

What are the Shambhala teachings of the Kalachakra, and how do they relate to the visions of Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche?
