While yoga has become a common practice for health and well-being, the ancient tools of Tibetan yoga remained secret for centuries. Translated as “magical movements,” Tibetan yoga can improve physical strength and support positive emotional and mental health, healing the body-energy-mind system with a full sense of awareness and harmony.
Therefore, Tsalung (Trul Khor), Tibetan yoga practice of breath and movement is the very ancient practice of Bon tradition, it’s coming from the source of mother tantric. In ancient time, great yogis and meditators they all practice this in order to enrich their deep meditation spiritual practices, and also in order to heal their physical health or prevent sicknesses and have better health and balance. It has a history of 18000 years long.
The Tselung exercises are used in the Tibetan Bon tradition, and also the four main schools of Tibetan Buddhism (Nyingma, Kagyu, Sakya, and Gelug). Historically practiced and taught only in remote Himalayan monasteries and caves, these magical healing movements are now being taught to serious western students. Tibet Bon religion is the indigenous spiritual tradition of Tibet rooted before the arrival of Buddhism. It teaches us about deepening our connection with the five elements which are the fundamental energetic qualities of all phenomena.
The Lukhang Temple “Temple to the Serpent Spirits: behind the Potala Palace in Lhasa city in Tibet, a secret meditation space created by the Dalai Lama in the 17th century. Many of the mural paintings in the temple depict Tsalung Trul Khor postures and we can see some of the external aspects of Tsalung Trul Khor. the physical postures.
The Five Tsalung Exercises are movements that work with five chakra locations within the central channel of the body: the crown, throat, heart, navel and secret chakra. It contains five types of exercises corresponding to the five elements (Earth, Water, Fire, Wind, and Void).
By bringing together the focus of the breath, mind, and physical movements, in each TSA lung, exercise you inhale and open specific energetic centers in the body. Then you re-inhale and hold the breath and focus while performing a specific movement designed to clear the obstacles that obscure and disturb you from recognizing the pure and open space of being. This pure and open space is the source of all positive qualities.
Blockages of the psychic paths are not only caused by psychological problems. Other strong factors like unwholesome food (and animal products), behavior and other external factors can cause them. Wrong behavior and diet are actually an important physical cause of negative or positive energies. In short, all energetic, mental, and physical disorders manifested from the mind, wind and micro-bacterial aggravation are agents to produce channel blockages that finally manifest through physical symptoms.
The sacred peak Mount Kailash spiritually has a very close connection with Bon tradition as they call the mountain Tise and believe it to be the seat of the Sky Goddess Sipaimen. Additionally, Bon myths regard Tise as the sight of a legendary 12th century battle of sorcery between the Buddhist sage Milarepa and the Bon shaman Naro Bon-chung. Milarepa’s defeat of the shaman displaced Bon as the primary religion of Tibet, firmly establishing Buddhism in its place.
