Help Our Community of Dedicated Buddhist practitioners Increase Peace and Harmony in our World By Making Jonang Kalachakra Tantra accessible in the USA.  The powerful detailed system of the Six Branched Yoga of the Kalachakra Tantra, allows practitioners to accomplish Buddhahood in one lifetime.  Unlike other systems of Highest Yoga Tantra, Kalachakra is very clear and detailed in the instructions on how to realize the ultimate nature of reality.

Make an offering to sponsor Rimé Kalachakra's legal fees to become a 501.3c religious organization.  The religious status will allow RimeKalachakra  to bring these profound teachings to more people to study, share and practice the Kalachakra tradition together. The amount will covers legal and accounting fees for multiple states.

Donate to establish Rime Kalachakra as a Non-Profit Buddhist Religious Organization 

Rime Kalachakra  is entirely 100% volunteer run.  Rime Kalachakra sponsors and facilitates our guru, Khentrul Rinpoche’s itinerary for our annual teachings and empowerments in the United States, organizes practices, prayer and ceremonial events, keeps the local vajra communities connected, and ensures study materials are available to the community, and manages funds and expenses.

It has been operating, offering religious services exactly that of a non-profit church organization, but without all due benefits. We have been relying on the kindness and generosity of our sanghas who offer their homes, renting spaces and volunteers. 

As a non-profit buddhist religious 501.3c organization, Rimé Kalachakra  will have tremendous benefits --
1)  Tax exemptions (related to properties and lands, items used for religious purposes, sales of religious materials)
2)  Legal structure to establish centers 
3)  Hold congregations for prayers, meditation and religious rituals
4)  Be able to accept tax-exempt donations from all 50 states 
5)  Eligible for land grants by the government
6) Legal structure to host Rinpoche's events (teachings, prayers, religious rituals, empowerments and initiations) in the USA 
7)  And more...

We hired an an attorney who specializes in this area of law to help form the religious organization properly. We are so grateful for your help in to bring Jonang Kalachakra teachings to the USA.

Rinpoche is a simple monk and DOES NOT need a centers. We, the students do.  

Shar Khentrul Jamphel Lodro Rinpoché is a non-sectarian, Jonang-Scholar and Rimé Vajra Master.  Khentrul Rinpoché noticed various masters have taken huge effort to give Kalachakra empowerments in the West, and foremost is his Holiness the Dalai Lama who has kindly bestowed the Kalachakra empowerment many times in the United States, yet there was no clear way for students to learn how to practice and realize the teachings, only the preliminary stages were taught by a few places, but no one taught the complete Kalachakra path to enlightenment.

Khentrul Rinpoché  has dedicated his life to teaching a clear step by step practice of the Kalachakra tantra to Western lay practitioners (non-monastic buddhist yogis).  He has written over 8 books in English on the subject. He is a trailblazer, undertaking tremendous effort to bring these teachings and empowerments to the West in English.

Kalachakra prayers create Peace and Harmony on earth that we desperately need today.

The Kalachakra tantra belongs to the Highest Yoga Tantra and contains the most subtle instructions on how to achieve Enlightenment in this very lifetime.  The Tibetan buddhist Jonang lineage is the only tradition that holds the Kalachakra Tantra completion stage teachings to attaining enlightenment, known as the 6 Vajra Yogas of Kalachakra. Most of the Jonang Vajra masters have never left their caves and monasteries in the Himalayas thus giving the impression that for quite a long period time, other lineages of Tibetan Buddhism believed perhaps the Jonang were extinct.

Thank you everyone. We have raised $4,677 so far. We are off to an incredible start. Help share this with members of the community, your family and friends to help us reach the 1st important benchmark of $7200. This would ensure we could cover the absolute minimum filing and legal fees. I have retained the lawyer and we are in the process. I would love to have this complete in time for Khentrul Rinpoche's 2019 North American teachings.
