Each of us is an extraordinary potential for love and compassion, capable of completely transforming the way we experience our world. Through the ancient wisdom of the Kalachakra teachings, this potential can be unlocked to manifest a sublime realm of experience, free from all forms of suffering and conflict. This state of eternal bliss is known by some as Shambhala.
Khentrul Rinpoché will help us unveil the hidden meaning of Shambhala and why it is so important for overcoming the problems of this world, especially in turbulent times of disagreement. With great precision and clarity, he dispels the many layers of confusion that have surrounded this often misunderstood subject, while also introducing a profound method for spiritual development, grounded in an unbiased and expansive approach transcending any one tradition.
This teaching is open to everyone.
