Online: Deity Yoga – Innate Kalachakra Practice Retreat

Register on Dzokden

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.

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 [email protected] 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. 

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.

We have created 3 offering levels to help make this affordable to a range of attendees as we must raise funds to cover the cost. The cost has been adjusted for the cost of living in various countries. Thank you for understanding so that we can make this accessible to our global family. If your ability to pay makes it difficult to attend this program, we will make every effort to make attendance possible.

As this is an online event, you can make the offering of Dana to Rinpoche here.
