Tantra is a rich practice that is particularly suited to our time where people are heavily engaged in desires and distraction. In Tibetan Buddhism the tantric path of Vajrayana, the diamond vehicle, engages directly with desires, emotions and all aspects of waking and sleeping as a potent force and technology for personal transformation and rapid awakening. While tantra does include teachings involving sexuality as a skillful means for transformation, as everything within our experience can be used on the tantric path, there is so much more to what tantra means and what it means to live a tantric life. Get insight from a Kalachakra Tantric master, the highest form of yoga-tantra in Tibetan buddhism, on how we can live a tantric life to move past all of our limitations to live radically free realizing our limitless ultimate nature of great immutable bliss and empty-form. This will be an evening teaching on a subject rarely taught publicly, Q&A, and discussion.

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.
