Khentrul Rinpoche returns to south africa
We are delighted to let you know that Khentrul Jamphel Lodro Rinpoche will be visiting South Africa again this year. Rinpoche gave Kalachakra Empowerments in Pretoria last year and will be giving teachings in Pretoria, Johannesburg at Shanti Kaya this year.
Renowned Jonang Scholar and Rimé Master of Tibetan Buddhism, Khentrul Rinpoche, studied in 11 monasteries under 25 teachers before becoming Khenpo (teacher) of Dzamthang Tsangwa
Monastery in Tibet. He was awarded the title of Rimé Master, meaning master of all traditions, by his Root Guru the supreme master Lama Lobsang Trinley in 1997. His vast and comprehensive knowledge offers the West a rare opportunity to engage in Buddhist practice from a non-sectarian point of view and provides unprecedented access to the most profound teachings of Kalachakra Tantra as taught by the Jonangpa.
Khentrul Rinpoche is considered the 7th emanation of Bodhisattva Akasagarbha. His previous reincarnations appeared twice in Eastern Tibet as the great yogic master Ngawang Chözin Gyatso and his subsequent incarnation as the Golok scholar Getse Khentrul.
Today, Khentrul Rinpoche is a highly realised Vajra Master of Kalachakra Tantra. He is known for his pure morality, incredible scholarship, meditative attainments and deep unwavering compassion.
Rinpoche has written and published more than 10 books in Tibetan and other languages; while also being an advisor to many monasteries and spiritual organisations.
Khentrul Rinpoche has two primary goals:
- To teach, share and practise non-sectarian Buddhist philosophy and meditation for ongoing spiritual investigation and development of the individual and broader community

Shar Khentrul Rinpoché Jamphel Lodrö
Khentrul Jamphel Lodrö Rinpoche was originally born in the mountain ranges of the Golok region of Tibet. After taking full ordination, he studied and practiced with more than 25 teachers from all of the major Tibetan Buddhist traditions, earning himself the title of “Rimé Master”. He was later officially recognised as the second reincarnation of the great master Lama Ngawang Chözin Gyatso. When he was chosen to be a teacher (khenpo) of the prestigious Tsangwa Monastery in Dzamthang, Rinpoche chose to renounce his position though in favor of dedicating himself to strict practice. After a time in retreat, he came to India to continue his practices and make pilgrimage to Buddhism’s most sacred sites. It was here that Rinpoche met His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama. The Dalai Lama supported Rinpoche’s plans to travel to the West and to spread the teachings of the Kalachakra Tantra. In 2003, Rinpoche moved to Australia and founded the Tibetan Buddhist Rimé Institute. Since then, Rinpoche has written and translated a number of books to guide students in the practice of the Kalachakra Path as presented by the Jonang-Shambhala lineage. While his main focus has been on the Kalachakra system, Rinpoche emphasises a non-sectarian approach helping his students draw from the vast wisdom of the Tibetan Buddhist tradition.
2017 WAS VERY FIRST TIME THE KALACHAKRA EMPOWERMENT AND TEACHINGS WERE PRESENTED IN SOUTH AFRICA .
