Omalaya Travel is happy to offer its customized Kalachakra tours to India to the devotees wishing to attend the precious Kalachakra 2017 Empowerment teaching. Omalaya-designed spiritual journeys are rooted in individual’s quest for self discovery and we incorporate the same outlook in designing the Kalachakra 2017 tour package. Omalaya Travel operated a successful Kalachakra tour to Ladakh in 2014. Omalaya-led devotees can receive Kalachakra initiation, teaching & empowerment under the expert guidance of tour’s spiritual guides like Geshe Tsering with Dr Chok and Geshe Lobsang with Tulku Phuljung.
Kalachakra is rarity as it is one of the most complex Buddhist teaching out there but still offered to the general public. Proper Kalachakra tantric initiation is required for the its practice like all Buddhist tantric systems. The receiver must possess certain qualities conducive for the smooth transition of initiations.
An ideal disciple should have experience of the three principal aspects of the Mahayana path: renunciation of Samsara, Bodhichitta, and understanding of Emptiness or at least be intellectually and spiritually be drawn to these concepts.
The most important of the three aspects is Bodhichitta, the desire for true, perfect enlightenment for the sake of others. Therefore, the primary mindset of a Kalachakra initiation recipient should reflect the thought “For the sake of all sentient beings I must achieve the state of Shri Kalachakra. Then I will be able to establish all other sentient beings in the state of Shri Kalachakra as well“.
