The Divine Ladder: Preliminary Practices of the Profound Kalachakra Vajrayoga

The Kalachakra sysem offers profound methods for transforming one’s impure perceptions and experiences, and unveiling our deepest reality.  Within the context of Buddhist Tantra, there are many systems which provide methods for attaining enlightenment.  The Kalachakra Tantra, however, has a number of unique characteristics that make it particularly important for this time.  Rinpoche will provide the oral transmission and instructions for the preliminary practices as presented in the “The Divine Ladder” by Jetsun Taranatha.

Manifesting Shambhala:

For thousands of years, people have practiced The Kalachakra system achieving incredible degrees of realization.  These extraordinary masters have access to all of the root tets and have written vast amounts of commentaries.  For this reaso, Shambala provides ideal conditions for the study and practice of the Kalachakra Path.  Please join us for a discussion about Shambala and what it means for cultivating peace and harmony in the mindstreams of practitioners.  Rinpoche will provide a unique oral transmission of the Shambala practice and Kalachakra Mantra to connect with the essence of love and compassion.


Shar Khentrul Jamphel Lodro Rinpoche is a Rime (Non-Sectarian) Master of Tibetan Buddhism who has devoted his life to a wide variety of spiritual practices, studying with more than 25 masters from all the major Tibetan traditions.  He was officially recognized as the second reincarnation of the great masters Lama Ngawang Chozin Gyatso and considered the 7th emanation of Bodhisattva Akasagarbha.  While he has genuine respect and appreciation for all spiritual systems, he has the greatest confidence and experience with his personal path of the Kalachakra Tantra as taught in the Jonang-Shambhala Tradition.
