2023 Kalachakra Empowerment to bring a Golden Age of Peace at Shambhala Boulder

2023 Kalachakra Empowerment to bring a Golden Age of Peace at Shambhala Boulder

We are so grateful to announce 2023 Kalachakra Empowerment will be given at the request of our event partner Shambhala International, Khentrul Rinpoche will bestow historic empowerment at their location in Boulder, Colorado. This is a historic opportunity for the Tantra brought to our earth by the Shambhala Kings to be given in an important space in which Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche brought so much Dharma to the world and through their introductory programs have diligently worked to share his Shambhala vision of an enlightened society. We find a lot of synchronicity with Khentrul Rinpoche’s vision of the Golden Age. The Empowerment will be available it in person at Shambhala in Boulder, Colorado.

We hope this helps create the conditions for peace and harmony to flourish around the world. The empowerment ceremony will take place in a meditative atmosphere over a few days. Please make sure to be present for all the sessions in your time zone. It includes a ceremony to spread prayers for peace and harmony around the globe, ritual dances, and the unveiling of a 3d version of the Jonang Kalachakra Mandala. You will be guided in a clear step-by-step way through empowerment so that you can understand what you are receiving. Through lectures, discussion, meditation, mantra, and ritual offerings, form a deep connection to your own inner realm of peace and harmony.

EMPOWERMENT GUIDE BOOK We will provide online registrants with an eBook to follow along with step-by-step which is available in English, Chinese, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese, Hungarian, Vietnamese, German, Romanian, Mongolian, Slovenian and French


Khentrul Rinpoche would like you to come to every session that you can. None of the actual empowerment sessions will be recorded. It is only available Live. If you want empowerment you must receive it live. Some other sessions will be recorded to accommodate people in a variety of time zones. Because we can not answer emails from everyone who has a schedule conflict, we have indicated the sessions that you absolutely must be present to receive this empowerment as “REQUIRED”.
Additional Event = This will be part of another event. Those not registered for this can see the recording in the learning center before the empowerment.
Private = This is only available in Zoom. Only registered attendees can view this event.

Kalachakra brings peace to oneself and the world as we learn to harmonize our environment with our body & mind. Kalachakra, which means the wheel of time, transcends religious time, space, and perceived reality. It is the essence that makes up our very nature. It harmonizes the cosmic, with our internal system and the enlightened mind. Unlike other Buddhist teachings, Kalachakra is very detailed giving insight and direction to help anyone of any religious tradition realize their true nature. This teaching helps us move past habitual limitations to unleash our limitless potential of love & compassion.

The Tibetan Buddhist Jonang Lineage specializes in the complete path that guides students in a clear step-by-step system to enlightenment. It is known specifically for upholding the 6 vajra yogas through which many enlightened masters have transitioned. It has rarely been taught in its entirety to lay (non-monastic) practitioners in the West. Most of the Jonang Yogis have decided to remain practicing in their caves and monasteries in the Himalayas. Khentrul Rinpoche has made it his life’s mission to bring these teachings to the west in English. He hopes to create the conditions for both female and male practitioners living in their daily lives to realize the heart essence of these profound teachings.

Kalachakra for World Peace
Buddha Shakyamuni taught the Kalachakra Tantra to the Kings of Shambhala at the same time the heart sutra was taught. In it, there is a clear prophecy for world peace to arise on this earth. Come create the conditions to usher in the Golden Age of Global peace and harmony. Khentrul Rinpoché is very genuine focusing on catalyzing the transformation of the authentic aspirations of his students. He makes this rich & complex ancient wisdom accessible so that anyone can engage with it more easily, at their own capacity, in all areas of their life.

1) Register each attendee that will be receiving the empowerment. Choose your preferred language. You will receive a confirmation email. After that, you will be added to our online learning center at learn.dzokden.org.
2) Before the empowerment, you will receive information on some simple supplies you should get to help make the experience as authentic as possible. If you are not able to get them all don’t worry. They are symbolic and you can still receive empowerment. More important you must understand what is happening. Just attending empowerment does not mean you receive it. You must know what is going on. To ensure everyone will receive empowerment, Rinpoche will kindly make his instruction booklet available to you as an eBook so you can follow along so you know exactly what is happening. You are not allowed to share this program book with anyone else or give them access to the empowerment. This is private for your personal use. Rinpoche typically gives the eBook out the night before but if this is a technical problem for you (you can’t read an eBook and be on zoom at the same time) please indicate on the registration form so we can work to accommodate you.
3) You will receive access to zoom for each of the sessions. While Khentrul Rinpoche wants the attendees there for every session, we have indicated the absolute required sessions so as not to have to a lot of emails about special circumstances. That said, he would prefer you are there for all of them

It’s customary at the end of empowerment for students to make an offering of Dana to the guru. As this is an online event, you can make the offering of Dana to Rinpoche here.

In celebration of Khentrul Rinpoche’s 60th birthday, a special year that brings the completion of all the signs and elements in a zodiac cycle, Rinpoche will give a teaching on birthdays and how to approach them. This is one of the most important birthdays in our zodiac cycle because it is when we revisit the sign and element from when we were born. Often times people associate this revisit to the natal sign as an obstacle year. In order to help prevent that we have already
1) made a long-life offering to Khentrul Rinpoche
2) Medicine Buddha and Marichi Mantra Accumulation
3) Built a Medicine Buddha Mandala and had 9 statues (7 Medicine Buddhas and 2 Taras) made for the Garden which will arrive in time for his birthday

Normally people become self-focused on their birthday. Rinpoche will give a teaching on how we can instead approach this day from a Buddhist perspective. In addition to this, he will bestow prosperity and long-life blessing on everyone.

In honor of Rinpoche’s 60th birthday, the community will recite long-life prayers to him and make offerings prepared by the different sanghas.
Often the end of this cycle is considered to be an obstacle year for the person. In order to prevent that our community has been reciting mantras.
