“Our most essential need is ultimate peace and harmony. The source of this perfection is the Sublime Realm of Shambhala.”
~Shar Khentrul Rinpoche
This is a rare opportunity to learn Kalachakra Tantra from a renowned Jonang Scholar and Tibetan Buddhist Rime Master Shar Khentrul Rinpoche. This evening will clear away the mystery that has shrouded Shambhala for ages. Learn how to bring peace and harmony into our world and cultivate it in your everyday life. This evening’s teaching is one in a series preparing students to understand the profound practice of Kalachakra especially in relation to the Bardos. This series culminates in a Kalachakra Phowa Retreat and Empowerment Ceremony.
Students wishing to attend the Phowa retreat who have not previously received a Kalachakra empowerment are asked to attend the preparatory teachings July 18-21.

Renowned Jonang scholar and Rime master, Khentrul Jamphel Lodrö Rinpoche, studied in 11 monasteries under 25 teachers before becoming Khenpo (teacher) of Dzamthang monastery in Tibet. He was awarded the title of Rimé master, meaning master of all traditions, by the supreme master Lama Lobsang Trinley in 1997 and conferred by His Holiness the Dalai Lama in 2003. His vast and comprehensive knowledge offers the West a rare opportunity to engage in Buddhist practice from a non-sectarian point of view and access the most profound teachings of Highest Yoga Tantra as taught by the Jonangpa.
Khentrul Rinpoche is considered the 7th emanation of Bodhisattva Akasagarbha. His previous reincarnations appeared three times in Eastern Tibet as Washul Lhazu Lama, Trulku Ngawang and Getse Khentrul.
Today, Khentrul Rinpoche is a highly realised Vajra Master of Kalachakra Tantra. He is known for his pure morality, incredible scholarship, meditative attainments and deep unwavering compassion.
Rinpoche has written and published more than 10 books in Tibetan and other languages. He advises many monasteries and organisations.
