SHAR KHENTRUL JAMPHEL LODRO RINPOCHE

Shar Khentrul Jamphel Lodrö Rinpoché 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 identified as the reincarnation of the famous Kalachakra Master Ngawang Chözin Gyatso. Khentrul Rinpoche is considered the 7th emanation of Bodhisattva Akasagarbha.

When he was chosen to be a teacher (khenpo) of the prestigious Tsangwa Monastery in Dzamthang, Rinpoche chose to renounce his position though in favor of dedicating himself to strict practice.

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. The Jonang lineage, thought to be extinct until recently by many Western scholars, he found held the most advanced teachings of Kalachakra (wheel of time) containing profound methods to harmonize our external environment with the inner world of body and enlightened mind.

Since 2014, he has travelled to more than thirty countries guiding students to realize their own sacred truth of limitless potential through a clear, systematic step-by-step presentation of the Kalachakra Path to enlightenment. By teaching people how to cultivate a flexible mind and remove bias, Khentrul Rinpoché aspires to create compassion-based communities, transforming this world into a golden age of global peace and harmony.

AN UNBIASED VIEW

Khentrul Jamphel Lodrö Rinpoche is a rimé master. ‘Rimé’ means a ‘non-sectarian’ or ‘non-biased’ view. While some people may think this is related to the idea of all systems being equal, it is actually focused on recognizing the value and benefit of multiple points-of-view. Khentrul Rinpoche wrote a rime book titled “Ocean of Diversity” that includes all the traditions of Tibetan Buddhism as well as many of the religious traditions alive in our world today.

JONANG SHAMBHALA LINEAGE

The Jonang are the core holders of two important lineages. The Zhentong Madhyamaka philosophy is recognised by many of the most realized masters as being the highest understanding of emptiness. The Jonang is the only Tibetan Buddhist school to emphasize this unique doctrine. The Kalachakra Tantra is the most comprehensive and effective system within Tibetan Buddhism. The Jonang is the only tradition that holds the entire Kalachakra system, including the unique completion practice known as the “Six Vajra Yogas”.
