RESIDENTIAL AND NON-RESIDENTIAL RETREAT
WHO CAN ATTEND
There are no prerequisites. This path is flexible; it allows us to engage with it wherever we are at. Everyone who has a desire can learn to practice the profound path of Kalachakra, the pinnacle of the Buddha’s teaching. The empowerment can be taken as a blessing or empowerment. The refuge, bodhisattva, tantric vows and uncommon vows of Kalachakra will be offered along with the empowerment for those taking this as an empowerment.
Kalachakra brings peace to oneself and the world as we learn to harmonize our environment with our body & mind. Kalachakra, which means wheel of time, transcends religions 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.
Through lecture, discussion, silent meditation, mantra, and ritual offerings, form a deep connection to your own inner realm of peace and harmony. In this week long retreat you will gain an understanding of the Jonang Kalachakra path to enlightenment and how you can begin to engage with it wherever you are at. Khentrul Rinpoche will bestow the outer preliminary teachings, oral transmission of the divine ladder (the ngondro), Innate Kalachakra (uncommon preliminary of Kalachakra), and teachings on the six vajra yogas.
