The word Kalachakra means “Wheel of Time”, refers to the unique presentation of cycles of time within the Kalachakra Tantra. This understanding of time is used in the Kalachakra as a basis for a system for liberation and enlightenment.

Kalachakra Retreat with Fire Puja.

The Kalachakra Six Session Guru Yoga will be used as the retreat sadhana – a beautiful practice which enables one to keep all of one’s tantric vows and commitments, combined with a brief deity practice of Kalachakra. We will be accumulating 100,000 mantras of the main deity, OM AH HUNG HO HANG KYA MALAWARAYA HUNG PHAT and concluding with the peaceful fire puja.

Retreat begins in the afternoon on November 1st and concludes with the fire puja on morning of November 8.

There will be two retreat sessions per day, early morning to lunch and then afternoon, with a teaching session with Jhado Rinpoche in the evening from 7pm – 9pm.

Retreat Prerequisites:

  • Having received the Kalachakra jenang is a requirement for the retreat.
  • Participants must attend the full retreat and all retreat sessions.

“If everyone is allowed to come I’m hopeful they will get a sense of how important and vital Kalachakra is and generate faith and the wish and hope to learn about it and meditate on it in future.

Jhado Rinpoche (Tenzin Jungne) was born in 1954 to a nomadic family living in the area of Namtso Lake, 220 kilometers north of Lhasa, Tibet. At the age of three he was recognized and enthroned as the 6th incarnation of the abbot of Jhado Monastery.

From 1992 until 1996, Rinpoche served as a teacher at Namgyal Monastery in Dharamsala, the personal monastery of His Holiness the Dalai Lama. In 1997, Rinpoche was appointed to the post of Abbot of Namgyal Monastery, and served the institution in that capacity until 2004.

Jhado Tulku Rinpoche is one of the most highly esteemed lamas in the Geluk lineage today. In addition to his excellent education in the Geluk monastic college system, over the years Rinpoche has also received many oral transmissions and empowerments from His Holiness the Dalai Lama and his two main tutors, as well as from many great teachers from other traditions, including the famous Nyingma master Trulshik Rinpoche and Chogye Trichen Rinpoche.

Renowned for his keen intelligence and dynamic teaching style, Jhado Rinpoche is also highly acclaimed for his ability to engage Western students in ways that are interesting and personally relevant. In addition to these qualities, Rinpoche is also well known and loved for his gentle demeanor and his kindness.
