The Kalachakra Tantra and World Peace

As with any Highest Yoga Tantra, the teachings and practice of the Kalachakra Tantra are based on a student having a thorough understanding of the core teachings of Buddhism from the sutras as well as a sound foundation in their practice. These fundamental teachings and practices include refuge, bodhichitta, ethical discipline, concentration and the wisdom realizing emptiness.

Prior to bestowing a Kalachakra Initiation, His Holiness the Dalai Lama always provides extensive teachings on key sutra level texts of Mahayana Buddhism that cover these fundamental topics. He shows in this way that the first stage of cultivating inner peace is through developing an understanding of these teachings and putting them into practice. When practitioners begins to develop inner peace of mind, they then are able to bring this quality to their interactions with their family, work colleagues and community.

The practice of Kalachakra of Six Session Guru Yoga as well as the generation and completion stages of the Kalachakra tantric practice help to quicken one’s development of inner peace by cultivating peace of mind at deeper, more subtle levels of mind. This is achieved through developing an understanding of the teachings of the External and Internal Kalachakra as well as engaging in the practices of the Alternative Kalachakra.

In addition, one of the unique features of the Kalachakra is that initiation is provided openly to large communities of Buddhist ordained and lay persons. For example, in 2012 over 200,000 people attending the Kalachakra Initiation in Bodgaya. In 2011, 8,000 people attended the Kalachakra Initiation given in Washington DC. Hence, as larger numbers of people in a community cultivate inner peace together the possibility of world peace is greatly increased.
