Weekend Intensive Teaching on " Kalachakra Six Session Guru Yoga" through online Zoom Meeting from June 25 to 27, 2021 with Geshe Lobsang Dhondup - Translation by Palden Oshoe.
The Kalachakra (The Wheel of Time) is a unique system of the highest yoga tantra in Tibetan Buddhism. Its practice is considered very subtle and important to the cultivation of personal inner peace and thereby extension, the practice of cultivating world peace. His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama has given many Kalachakra initiations, and provided numerous teachings on Kalachakra throughout the world. His Holiness has designated Namgyal Monastery in Ithaca as Du Khor Choe Ling, The Land of Kalachakra Study and Practice.
The Kalachakra Six Session Guru Yoga text provides a relatively short form of this profound practice. The practice of guru yoga is considered an important aspect of tantric practice in Mahayana Buddhism. Tantric meditation largely depends on the inspiration of the teacher (guru) that is transmitted through an unbroken lineage of the teachings and practice. Hence, guru yoga is both an essential foundation and the life force of the path in tantric practice. During this weekend intensive, Geshe-la will provide explanation and commentary on the Kalachakra Six Session Guru Yoga text.
Students who wish to attend this teaching should either have already received the Kalachakra Initiation or have a strong aspiration and commitment to receive the initiation in the future.
