    The Golden Age and Shambhala

    The renowned Kalacakra-tantra, the most detailed of Vajrayana literature, speaks about the degenerate age and the coming Golden Age. The Shambhala teachings, said to be the hidden inner teachings of the Kalacakra, envision an enlightened society imbued with harmony, compassion, and warriorship. What are the Shambhala teachings of the Kalacakra, and how do they relate to the terma lineages and visions of Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche? 


    Khentrul Rinpoche is a Non-Sectarian Master of Tibetan Buddhism who has engaged with a wide variety of spiritual practices, studying with more than 25 masters from all the major Tibetan traditions. While he has genuine respect and appreciation for all spiritual systems, he has chosen to dedicate his life to promoting his personal path of the Kalachakra Tantra as taught in the Jonang-Shambhala Tradition.
