“Our most essential need is ultimate peace and harmony. The source of this perfection is the Sublime Realm of Shambhala.” ~ Shar Khentrul Rinpoche

From Genghis Khan to modern times, the realm of Shambhala has captured the imagination and hearts of spiritual seekers and warriors. With great precision and clarity, Khentrul Rinpoche will dispel the many layers of confusion that have surrounded this often misunderstood subject, while also introducing a profound method for spiritual development, grounded in an unbiased and expansive approach transcending any one tradition. During this evening, Rinpoche will also share his new prayer for Shambhala to help us usher in an age of global peace and harmony.

The legend and power of Shambhala and its connection to the Kalachakra teachings are not only of interest to members of Shambhala Centers. Khentrul Rinpoche is a non-sectarian Tibetan Buddhist master who has dedicated his personal practice path to these teachings as taught in the Jonang-Shambhala tradition.

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 traveled 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.
