Instructors

Ven. Tenpai Gyaltsen

Suchandra Institute

Ven. Tenpa’i Gyaltsen and his root teacher, the Kalachakra Master Khentrul Rinpoche Jamphel Lodrö, have collaborated on many English books from the basics of meditation up to the advanced yogic practices of the Six Vajra Yogas. Tenpa’i Gyaltsen is currently based at the Suchandra Institute in Austria, and is the president of Dzokden, a not-for-profit organization dedicated to the manifestation of the golden age through the study and practice of Kalachakra.

Khentrul Rinpoche

Jonang Kalachakra and Rimé Master

Khentrul Rinpoché Jamphel Lodrö is the founder and spiritual director of Dzokden. Rinpoche is the author of Unveiling Your Sacred Truth, The Great Middle Way: Clarifying the Jonang View of Other-Emptiness, A Happier Life, and The Hidden Treasure of the Profound Path. Rinpoche 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. Kalachakra (wheel of time) teachings contain profound methods to harmonize our external environment with the inner world of body and mind, ultimately bringing about the golden age of peace and harmony (dzokden).
