Raised by 32 people in 2 months
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. This religious status will allow RimeKalachkra  to operate easily in 4 states in 2019, creating the possibility for us to bring these profound teachings to more people to study, share and practice the Kalachakra tradition together. This covers legal and accounting fees. Help us reach the goal of $20,000.

Donate Now to Help Rime Kalachakra Establish 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 sanghas 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)  A firm legal footing to establish centers to host teachings, prayers, religious rituals, empowerments and initiations from our Guru
3)  A center for practitioners to come together for prayers, meditation and religious rituals
4)  Hold Kalachakra dharma events and solicit for donations in all 50 states without the need to individually register in all of them
5)  Eligible for land grants by the government
6) Legally host Rinpoche's events in California, New York, Colorado, and Oregon in 2019 with clear sponsorship and donation opportunities.
7)  And more.

We are so grateful for your help in to bring Jonang Kalachakra teachings to the USA. 
We hired an an attorney who specializes in this area of law to help form the religious organization properly.  We will need the formation completed by no later than mid-February to obtain the tax exempt status for Rinpoche’s 2019 teachings and empowerments starting in July.

Rinpoche is a simple monk and DOES NOT need a centers. We, the students do.  The time to do this is now - we need to have a stable place and legal framework to come together for practices, teachings, events, retreats, pujas, and all the important and necessary aspects of the practices.

Donate now and share with friend to help us reach out goal.

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.

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.  

Your generous giving will help Rime Kalachakra flourish throughout the United States raining blessings for sentient beings to reach enlightenment.

                                Each of us has an extraordinary potential for love and compassion, 
                       capable of completely  transforming the way we experience our world.

Sarva Mangalam! 
May the Kalachakra Dharma and Jonang Lineage Flourish in the 3 Times and 10 Directions. 
May all beings everywhere come to realize the union of great immutable bliss and empty-form that is Kalachakra.

If there are any remaining funds after the attorney and accountant fees for this processing they will be put to Rime Kalachakra general activity operational costs for 2019 which includes brining the Kalachakra Initiation to the New York Area.

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.
