KHENTRUL RINPOCHE’S COLORADO SERIES July 17 -29
Cultivating awareness and understanding of the subtle body is beneficial for tantric and yogic practitioners.
The subtle energy body has different names in different religious traditions from Chinese medicine’s view of chi through the Vedic understanding of prana, nadis and marma points to Tibetan Vajrayana’s focus on winds, channels and drops. Each tradition has their own point of view on the chakras and their own skillful means to make use of their understanding.
For vajrayana and sowa rigpa practioners, it is in important to understand these teaching from the perspective of Tibetan buddhism and in the context of their tradition. Khentrul Rinpoché will give an introductory teaching on the chakras, winds, channels and drops going over what they are and how they relate to the teachings. The energy channels are used in many practices from rapidly cultivating shamatha and vipasanna to ultimately realizing enlightenment through the 6 vajra yogas of Kalachakra.
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 receive an extensive education 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 and was identified as the reincarnation of the famous Kalachakra Master Ngawang Chözin Gyatso. Khentrul Rinpoche is considered the 7th emanation of Bodhisattva Akasagarbha. 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 tradition. This ancient tradition was thought to be extinct by many Western scholars. Khentrul Rinpoche found that these teachings held the most advanced Kalachakra instructions held the profound methods to harmonize our external environment with the inner world of body and mind.
Khentrul Rinpoché has made it his life’s goal to be a powerful ambassador for global peace and harmony. He was awarded citizenship to Australia where he learned English in order to pass on these hidden teachings to the West. Since 2014, he has travelled to more than thirty countries, empowering 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.
