Kalachakra Teachings & Empowerment
Join us for Khentrul Rinpoche’s teaching in Northern California in 2018. A precious and rare opportunity to receive the Innate Kalachakra empowerment from a Jonang-Scholar and Rimé Vajra Master in the United States.
Whether or not you have received the Kalachakra empowerment or are new to it, you can increase the strength of your connection with the profound teaching of Kalachakra and Shambhala through this teaching and jenang. A jenang is a shorter form of an empowerment usually given after one has received a highest yoga tantra empowerment although it is not necessary.
A light lunch will be provided for the sangha.
As part of the long life offering it is traditional to perform the tsok offering. Please bring food or drink that is packaged in a way that is easy to distribute to the sangha. Please place your offering on the table at the left of the hall to be blessed for the Tsok.

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.
