Abstract: (Show)
Kalachakra is a system of highest tantra practice for overcoming the limitations imposed by historical, astrological, and biological cycles, so as to become a Buddha for the benefit of all. Explains the theory of tantra, the vows, commitments and their implications, the factors to consider in deciding if one is ready to attend as an active particpant, how to visualize, and the most important thoughts and feelings for participants and observers at each step of the empowerment. Presents the variations in the Kalachakra initiation procedures of the four lineages of Tibetan Buddhism and discusses the relation between the Kalachakra teachings and karma, astrology, Tibetan medicine, the land of Shambhal, and world peace.
