 Tibetan Pulsing Yoga - Student Support Resources

If you already have some experience of Tibetan Pulsing Yoga through having attended Tibetan Pulsing events in the past, you have come to the right place. Tibetan Pulsing Course

As all students do, I have myself at times wondered how I could best integrate Tibetan Pulsing in my life. I am in no position to give advice, but I hope that at this page fellow Tibetan pulsers will share their own experiences on this topic, for our mutual benefit and interest.

To make a start, I'll describe some of my own experiences and thoughts, and please write to share your own as well to be posted here, if you have any insights that may be of interest or use to other Tibetan pulsers!

(i) Besides staying in touch with the ongoing programme of events, many pulsers find it helpful to meet up with fellow Tibetan Pulsers near them for regular exchanges of pulsing sessions, and Dheeraj used to encourage this, explaining that each pulsing group was in itself only a key, a tool, to be put into practice by each of us afterwards in our daily life through further exchanging. In Ireland this is a little difficult for me, mind you,which is why I travel to meet other pulsers and exchange with them when I can!

(ii) Outside of sessions, too, pulsers have found it useful to aim to carry some of the qualities of meditation gained through pulsing (e.g. relaxation, awareness, bliss, tranquility, wisdom, etc.) into as many other areas of life as possible, not keeping them merely restricted to the sessions themselves. I particularly like this aspect, living as I do far from other Tibetan pulsers! ;-) I sometimes think of a parallel anecdote about the famous pianist Artur Rubinstein: I read how he was once asked in an interview what made him such a great pianist, and what he might recommend to other pianists, concerning what might make a difference to their playing. While I don't remember that he expressed any conceit concerning the compliments from the interviewer, he nonetheless, on being pressed, finally declared that there was no difference between himself and other concert pianists except that they practised more than he did. Understandably, this mysterious answer rather perplexed the interviewer, so he went on, explaining that he would only practise for a few hours a day - perhaps a couple of hours and no more - not ten or more hours a day like many pianists. Then during the other eight hours gained in the day, when he wasn't playing the piano, he explained that there was then plenty of time left for living life: and that without that, he felt there would be no life experience, no real life emotion, to express and bring into the piano playing. This little story touched me, because I love Rubinstein's passionate and sincere piano playing, and I agree with his reflections on the value of integrating creative activities into our lives in this way. The amount of pulsing suitable to each individual at a given point in their life is variable, and during the other times when they are not pulsing, the system goes on assimilating the pulsing work that has been done anyway.

(iii) Some pulsers find further reading helpful. General books or courses on meditation and Buddhism may be useful for some, for example. I've therefore also established an article page at this site which I hope will be expanded over time with contributions from fellow pulsers. The Padmasambhava Association also makes available, in various languages, copies of the book "Where Does the World Come From?", which is a great reference for experienced pulsers who have begun some of the New Mind modules.

(iv) I've found that persistence pays off. Although I enjoyed pulsing right from the start, as many do (but not necessarily everyone right away), it's at the same time such a complex, profound and multi-faceted body of work that it takes many years of diligent practice, of course, even just to begin to progress through and assimilate the different areas of yoga practice. (Repetition of groups is a great help, too, to deepen awareness, transformation and experience of each area: it usually requires regular repeated yoga practice for a given organ to realize a deep and genuine relaxation and transformation of all the energy patterns, emotions, thoughts, behaviours, memories and accumulated negative electrical charges associated with it - hence Tibetan Pulsing groupleaders usually allow those who have participated in a group before to return in the future to attend it again free of charge, as many times as they wish - and many pulsers take this option repeatedly - so long as they offer assistance, where needed/directed, in the running of the group). I've found that the more I've 'stuck with it,' and continued the pulsing work, the more I have felt grateful for doing so. Eventually there's an inevitable 'increasing bliss-load' that pulsers report, beginning to gradually fill their daily lives - a natural result of transforming the accumulated negative electrical charges in the system, leading to a steadily growing capacity to experience internally blessings such as relaxation, peace, bliss, love, wisdom, and so on. In my observation of humanity people are not naturally very capable of allowing these experiences and feelings to take place very often or very deeply in their lives - it doesn't seem to be an ability most people are born with! However, with practice they can be learned, thankfully.

(v) There is also the question of motivation. Who am I to talk of motivation? Each has his or her own motivation, and that is that, you might say! Nonetheless, I feel it's something worth stopping to consider. If we never question our motives, we won't be aware of what is driving us, or why we do what we do, and whether it's really what we want to do! I feel it's better to question our motives now, rather than regret them later! For me personally, it's a life or death concern: I've always been haunted by the knowledge that life is brief, and that when my time to die arrives, as it must for all of us, the only question that will probably be of any significance to me in that moment (if I have the good fortune to be able to engage in lucid thought before dying!) will be whether I have optimized my time alive in a meaningful way or not: whether my time has been used to further loving and compassionate concerns, or frittered away through other distractions!

(vi) Finally, there is the question of goal. Since pulsing, once started, often becomes such a lengthy life-long passion, it's natural for us to question why, and what we're working towards! It seems to me that pulsing is a systematic, easy and enjoyable method of transforming each corner of our being at each different level - but for what? The enjoyment is part of it, but only part. I feel Tibetan Pulsing has the same aims as any form of Yoga or any other Buddhist - or indeed any other authentic religious or spiritual - practice: to work towards and eventually reach a state of authentic self-realization, wisdom, compassion, enlightenment, buddhahood and ultimate freedom - and not for personal gain but merely as a stepping stone towards helping to bring about the self-realization and freedom of the rest of humanity too, and, indeed (as in the Buddhist mantra or prayer), of all sentient beings:

"May all sentient beings be free from suffering AND free from the causes of suffering."
