Online: Deity Yoga – Innate Kalachakra Practice Retreat
ABOUT THE PRACTICE RETREAT
People are always chasing the idea of self or getting to know the self but can not recognize the innate true nature that is already present. This practice closes the gap more between who we think we are and who we really are. Our goal is to shift our sense of identity from the illusory self that is projected by ignorance, to a conceptual self that arises from wisdom, therefore bringing us closer to our Buddha-nature.
This retreat is an opportunity to strengthen awareness and cultivate confidence in our own inherent divine nature through the authentic lineage of Tibetan Buddhism of the Jonangpas. There are several skillful means you will have a chance to work with within the different Kalachakra Sadhanas, Kalachakra-Tsok and ordinary activities, in order to unveil the Innate Kalachakra.
For those who have just received the Kalachakra Empowerment and are working on their Ngöndro, this is an ideal opportunity to learn how to put it into practice and to expand enormously the accumulation of merit and wisdom. For those who have been practicing it previously, it is a precious opportunity to realize the power of practicing together with our vajra brothers and sisters.
FOR WHOM IS THIS FOR?
All those who sincerely wish to practice Kalachakra and have received the first set of the Kalachakra Empowerment (Kalachakra Initiation) or the Innate Kalachakra Jenang Initiation from Shar Khentrul Rinpoché, Choekyi Nangwa Rinpoché, HH the Dalai Lama, Jhado Rinpoché or any other Vajra Master of an authentic lineage, regardless of their school of practice.
In order to create the best conditions, it is preferred to have received the first set of the Kalachakra Initiation that are called “The 7 Empowerments of a Growing Child”. However, anyone who has received any other authentic Unsurpassed Yoga Tantra Empowerment and practiced extensively already in their tradition may take part as well. In case of doubt about this important prerequisite, please write to firstname.lastname@example.org before registering.
If you do not have the prerequisite, you are welcome to join here for the Kalachakra Empowerment Rinpoche will give in Mongolia (online participation is possible) before this retreat.
HOW TO PREPARE MYSELF FOR THIS RETREAT
If you are new to the teachings of Shar Khentrul Rinpoche or to the Jonang School of Tibetan Buddhism, Rinpoche strongly encourages you to prepare yourself in advance for this retreat.

夏．堪祖．嘉培珞珠．仁波切Non-Sectarian Master of Kalachakra
夏堪祖嘉培珞珠仁波切是國際卓登機構的創始人及精神導師。仁波切亦是 《見證你的佛性》（Unveiling Your Sacred Truth），《大中觀 : 覺囊派他空見》（The Great Middle Way : Clarifying the Jonang View of Other-Emptiness），《美好的生命》（A Happier Life），《神聖階梯：時輪金剛修習次第詳釋》（The Hidden Treasure of the Profound Path）等書的作者。
仁波切二十歳前在西藏高藏上放牧及誦持真言咒語。受到菩薩的感召，他離開家庭，到多間寺院參學，得到二十五位以上的大師指導，廣習所有藏傳佛教的傳承。正因為這種不論派別的學習，他獲得「利美」（RIME）大師之銜，亦被認證為時輪金剛大師雅旺確津嘉措（Ngawang Chözin Gyatso）的轉世。仁波切教學的核心是認識到全世界有眾多多樣化而有價值的心靈傳承。當中，他專注傳揚覺囊派的時輪教法（Kalachakra），這是殊勝之道，能讓外在環境與內在身心靈世界和諧一致，超越地帶來黃金時代的平和與和諧（Dzokden 卓登）。
