Tulku Lobsang Rinpoche is currently in Dharamsala, India, giving a historic Lu Jong & Tsa Lung teacher Training. Nangten Menlang International, in association with the Central Tibetan Administration Department of Health organized this training. The participants are physical instructors and yoga teachers from Tibetan schools all across India.
The event started with an opening ceremony with special guests Dr. Tsering Wangchu, Kalon of Health Department CTA and the CTA Health Secretary Tsegyal Dranyi. Several media representatives and journalists also attended. Tulku Lobsang Rinpoche talked about his wish to preserve the richness of the Tibetan culture and to make the powerful Tibetan healing exercises accessible to the public. The CTA Department of Health also expressed the importance to take care of one’s own health. The goal of this historic teacher training is to integrate Tibetan yoga exercises into the Tibetan schools, to teach children how to find harmony in their bodies, minds and spirits, and to show them how to have a happy and healthy well-being.
About 25 Tibetan teachers traveled from different regions of India for this rare opportunity to learn more about Lu Jong—Tibetan Healing Yoga and Tsa Lung Healing Breath exercises from the Tantrayana tradition. In addition to learning the exercises, the training includes learning the historic background and the physical and mental benefits of the practices.
All participants were immediately captivated by these complex series of exercises. They are so motivated to learn that even during their break times, they are asking Rinpoche questions and practicing the movements with colleagues. The participants are fascinated by Tulku Lobsang Rinpoche's enormous knowledge about the various aspects of the Tantrayana practice. He also explains the connection to Tibetan medicine. Participants are highly impressed by Rinpoche's presence, teachings and practice demonstrations.
It is a precious gift to receive these teachings from a qualified master and to preserve the transmission lineage. May this training be the seed to fulfill Tulku Lobsang Rinpoche's wish. May it help restore the treasure of the Tantrayana healing techniques to all Tibetan people and may it benefit their health and happiness. May these powerful techniques spread throughout the world for the benefit of all sentient beings.
