Join us for the only Jonang Kalachakra empowerment in the United States this year at a beautiful retreat center in the wilderness of New York state. The empowerment ceremony will take place in a meditative atmosphere over the course of 5 days. It includes a ceremony to spread prayers for peace and harmony around the globe, ritual dances and the unveiling of a 3d version of the Jonang Kalachakra Mandala. You will be guided in a clear step-by-step way through the empowerment so that you can understand what you are receiving. 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.

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. This teaching helps us move past habitual limitations to unleash our limitless potential of love and compassion.

The Tibetan Buddhist Jonang Lineage specializes in the complete path that guide students in a clear step-by-step system to enlightenment. Most of the Jonang Yogis have decided to remain practicing in their caves and monasteries in the Himalayas. Khentrul Rinpoche, inspired by His Holiness the Dalai Lama’s effort to initiate so may millions of students, has made it his life’s mission to bring these teachings to west in English.
