Kalachakra Tantra Practice Group for advanced practitioners

Kalachakra-Tantra – The Preliminary Practices 


The Divine Ladder: Preliminary and Main Practices of the Profound
Kalachakra Vajrayoga
by Jetsun Taranatha (1575 – 1634) starts with the Outer and Inner Preliminaries


Outer Preliminaries
and Lineage Invocation:

Contemplating the four convictions motivates the mind to practice:

  • death and impermanence
  • precious human birth
  • cause and effect
  • advantages of liberation

Invocation of the lineage masters activates the blessing of the uninterrupted transmission lineage of the Jonang Kalachakra lineage masters.


Inner Preliminaries
(Ngöndro):

  • Refuge and prostrations (entry into Buddhist practice)
  • Generating the mind of enlightenment (enlightenment for the sake of all beings)
  • Vajrasattva purification (purification of negative karmic influences)
  • Mandala offering (accumulation of merit)
  • Guru yoga (blessing of the masters)
