Cultivate awareness and understanding of the subtle body to benefit your tantric and yogic practices.

About this Event

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.

ABOUT SHAR KHENTRUL RINPOCHE

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 study 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. 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-Shambhala tradition. Thought to be extinct by many Western scholars, he found it held the most advanced teachings of Kalachakra (wheel of time) containing profound methods to harmonize our external environment with the inner world of body and mind.

Since 2014, he has travelled to more than thirty countries guiding 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.
