Tsa-rLung Traditional Healing

Tibetan Traditional Medicine healing practice ‘Tsa-rLung’, may also be also called ‘hand healing’, these two Tibetan words meaning, per se: ‘channels-wind’. Similar to the Reiki and Tai-Ji this is a Tibetan version of these well known techniques for energy healing. Similarly it may be traced back in Central Asia and Tibet Himalayan Shamans, either in Bon-Pos or Amchis Traditional Healing since thousands of years ago, and so far has been preserved in the Tibetan Materia Medica, Tsa-rLung Lamas, Dzogchen Lamas and Nagpas Yoga Lineages, presenting today various forms all issued from the identical Shamanic Healing Roots, but sometimes presented to Westerners nowadays as part of an so-called secret knowledge. Practically, it simply can be learned, practices and experienced in ways being similar to other sources, such as in Ajna Yoga, Pranadi / Panorama Yogas, Reiki, Tai-Ji and Acupuncture developmental curricula.

In principle, learning the techniques of Tsa-rLung healing involves various steps. Firstly, the body must be attuned to the more subtle perception level of the energy body for giving healing. The channels are to be (re-)opened by various embodiments, breathing exercises, body movements and visualizations/meditations, and the channels elements and humours must be well-balanced. Thereafter, using the Tumo Yoga for heat energy or the Tigle visualization for channelling, again by means of the personalized energy practices, one must become able to generate Tumo heat and control the energy, then to release and control the healing energy. IN principle also, Tsa-rLung techniques use various type of wind energy to guide healing energy to the person undergoing treatment.

However, there is also a more Tantric or artistic way to perceive and control healing energies by using Performing Arts, Archetypes Painting Visualisation, Sacred Dance Embodiment, Divination Rituals, Pujas, Mandalas Yoga and other Himalayan Shamanic tools, which may apply their benevolent effect on the soul, mind and body of oneself or of patients, by opening channels, embody archetypes energy and/or restoring the balance of the spirits and elements, for purpose of inspiration, visualization, healing and rejuvenation.

Shamanic healing techniques, when duly controlled by an experienced practitioner, may at a same time cleanse the energy body and open possibility for better communication between ones higher-self and the normal consciousness. As soon as a channel between the higher-self and the consciousness is initiateds, healing and visualization can go much further. Dreams, divination, intuition, inspirations, visualization of energy body(ies) and a new awareness directly will affect, on a very practical and day-to-day basis, ones very personal experiences. It helps to bring an entire human being into a more harmonious state of mind and relationship with people, their natural world or any contextual circumstances.

Reiki,  Shamanic Healing Traditions and Tibetan healing tradition Tsa-Lung, are working together. It seems to me as if a big puzzle is very gently put together by invisible hands and helps to give us an idea what our existence could be about. 

 All these healing methods whether they are ancient or lately channeled, once we have worked with them, integrated them into our life and felt and trusted the inner, hidden message within these techniques, help us to  realize that our life is changing. How could we possibly not hear the message behind it. Healing and the development of loving kindness are going hand in hand and help us to do the next step further.

Cairn Tsa-rLung Healing & Performing Arts always will include explanations on the concepts, systems and techniques involved, as well as the medical knowledge required for proper healing. All participants will be guided through the exercises and visualisation, and of course initiated in healing power, when necessary.

Tsa-rLung  Healing  Training Seminars

The Tsa-rLung Healing Training Seminars will provide interested participants with an introduction, explanatory and indepth training, either in a recognized European Psychotherapy Training Center, or during a teaching retreat at the target-site Bodhanath Stupa and surrounding KTM valley Tsa-rLung Lamas centers. It will directly offer a personalized relation with Tsa-Lung Nagpas Lineages and Retreat Centers found in KTM  Nepal, Sikkim, or Tibet (TAR China). More precisely, the Parping Nagpa centers (KTM) and local Sherpa Tsa-rLung Lamas monasteries, will offer the participants with the selected natural context needed for an experiential quality training.  The Tibetan Medicine resources will be added from selected Tibetan Traditional Medicine Amchis, who are based either in Clinics (Kailash, Kunphen) or at Healing Lamas in Gompas (Bonpo monasteries). These high quality resource for Tsa-rLung Healing introduction and experiential training have been depositary from direct transmission and teachings of Tsa-rLung and Dzogchen holders and teachers.

It is expected that all who undertake Tsa-rLung training in one lineage will adhere to both the particular lineage significance, as well as with an Holistic approach to present modern context. All rituals and symbols belonging to one lineage, and given to trainees during initiation and training will be held in trust and not used for bartering or trading for other forms of healing or training.  This will help maintain the pure transmission of the teachings and lineage with no deviation or extraneous material being introduced. 

A declaration is to be signed before commencing the training agreeing to the guidelines and honouring the tradition and course material of the specific master. 

There are contextual and physical limitations on the time and resources which each Lamas can allocate to trainees in a natural environment of local monasteries, Healing Centres or Retreat Centres. As such, trainees should understand that their progress are as much the result of their own personal efforts, than that of the teachings of Lamas.  For new practitioners, practices should be commenced a minimum of 18 months before one can start to receive Tsa-rLung Level2.

The Tsa-rLung Healing conferences and experiential seminars will be organized as the first part of an ethically elaborated and always personalized Tsa-rLung Healing indepth training. The tsa-rLung teaching is based on the Tibetan Medicine Materia Medica, Vajrayana Tantric Yogas practices and a continuous reference to the precious heritage of Transpersonal and Holistic Psychology (Tibetan Psychotherapy Tarab Tulku Rimpoche) as applications to Healing, Self-healing, Embodiment, Divination and Rejuvenation techniques, being found in the related Tibetan Yoga practices.

These will be linked with a personalized presentation of the basic concepts of the Tibetan Energy Body (Lung and Tsa) and use of the Five Elements energies. Such will start with an invitation to the necessary cleansing  and further introduction to energy visualization and mobilisation though known “Elements Preliminary Practices”. 

Preliminaries are the authentic starting place and doorway through which every practitioner interested in pursuing the Tsa-rLung experiential transmission may receive the blessings of the lineage holders. These preliminary practices aim to tame the mind, prepare perception, reboot energy control and turn it towards the healing path, purifying illnesses, and other obstacles, which are naturally encountered along our the path of the Sacred Body of Light enduring Quest...

They would be best easily performed in the Nepalese natural tested context of Tsa-rLung Nagpas Lamas Retreat Centers or Teaching Seminars organized in Nepal. Please click here for more details... 

This programme will propose both the conceptual content and experiential covering the Sacred Tsa-rLung Healing and Divination, as they may be found in Nepal, Tibet and N-India powerplaces, and in the daily practices in Tibetan Medicine Materia Medica nowadays. 

Comparison of the Tsa-rLung practices visualization, with other Roots Shamanic Divination and Healing, such as: Celtic Archetypes, Reiki, Tai-Ji and modern Musico-Energotherapy will enfold naturally.

This encompasses as well as the introduction to the Nyingma and Bonpo Tsa-rLung Dzogchen Lineages Protectors and Rituals, which will allow a cross-cultural appraisal of the archetypes and fields of consciousness being approached.

 

Cairn R&D General Methodology requisites will accordingly focus upon a truly comparative conceptual, hermeneutic (symbolic) and experiential study of three inputs:

1- Inputs from the Celtic Archetypal paradigm, reviewed under reference of the Grail Lore, embodied in selected powerplaces,

2- Inputs from the Tibetan Tsa-rLung Yoga, Tantric Healing and Traditional Medicine practices, both theoretical and practices,

3- Inputs from a renewed R&D epistemology approach including  Energo/Chromo-therapy concepts, from Prof. J.T Zeberio (AG),

A  Stepwise Ethnographic Approach

Due to the need for experiential congruence with the Tibetan Himalayan archetypes and Tsa-rLung yoga techniques presented, it is the view of the Cairn Training & Research Supervision that the Tsa-rLung Healing Experiential Training, per se, would rather and better be implemented (for the participants own benefit) within the natural context and lineage energy surrounding of Nepal. Practically, the Nepal approach will also allow the participant a more long-term and beneficial stepwise chronology of inputs and resonance, in a more cost-effective and naturally enfolding transmutation process, than imported seminars in the West. However, due to the fact of time and resource constraint, options are being studied nonetheless to answer eventual interest in relevant operation to be conducted in Europe and Canada. It will also allow a more studied linkage with clinical and anthropology academic units. We do however advise all persons interested to rather come for a cultural immersion in Nepal.

The first part of the Tsa-rLung Healing training, per se, will be based upon Tsa-rLung Yoga concepts and practices, the Tibetan Medicine Materia Medica supporting it, and the Holistic Psychology (Psychotherapy) paradigm compatible applications to such methods for Healing, Self-healing, Divination and Rejuvenation techniques, as found in the Tantras and related Ajna Pranayama Yoga practices.

The methodology will include the debriefing of each participants' previous Dharma, Healing or Yoga practices and academic or clinical background, to be linked with the personalized implementation of Tsa-rLung basic concepts of the Tibetan Energy Body (Lung and Tsa) and dequate use of these energies, such as an invitation to the necessary cleansing  and further introduction to subtle energy visualization and mobilisation “Preliminary Practices” exercises.

These preliminaries are the authentic starting place and doorway through which practitioners interested in Tsa-rLung experiential transmission willreceive the teaching and blessings of the lineage holders. These preliminary practices aim to tame the mind, prepare perception, reboot energy control and turn the mind-frame towards the healing path, purifying illnesses, and other obstacles, which are naturally encountered along our the path of the Sacred Body of Light enduring Quest...

This programme proposes the conceptual content and experiential content for Tsa-rLung Healing and Divination, as they may be found in Tibetan Medicine Materia Medica in Nepal, nowadays.

The comparison of the Tsa-rLung practices visualization, with other Roots Shamanic Divination and Healing practices, such as : Reiki, Tai-Ji and other modern Musico-Energotherapy Healing techniques will enfold naturally, as well as the more personalized introduction to the Lineage Protectors and Rituals which allowing a cross-cultural appraisal of the archetypes and fields of consciousness approached.

Comprehensive Training

CAIRN  Tibetan Medicine Tsa-rLung Healing, Divination and Energy Body of Light Energo-therapy Training curriculum is generally divided into seven (7) sub-modules, which are flexible and can be tailored to any particular background, praxis, needs or audience. Although the content is of a rather sophisticated nature, for being linked with conceptualisation, visualization and control of the Subtle Energy Body and channels, the language and practices are accessible and jargon-free, making the training and material user-friendly for participants, at all levels and disciplines.

The training is a dynamic combination of priorily- tested conceptual references and experiential exercises. Emphasizing the critical concepts of awareness, empowerment and developmental collaboration, CAIRN training focuses on three major goals:

  • A theoretical framework to guide work in healing, self-healing and counselling

  • Specific diagnosis and intervention techniques to use either with clients or self

  • Attention to the internal needs of consensual archetypal coherence, tantric awareness procedures, cleansing and lineage protection or powerplaces

In addition, the curriculum cogently addresses the common questions, concerns, and skepticism about the Tibetan Medicine Materia Medica, Traditional Shamanic Healing, Hermeneutic Awareness in Tibetan Group focused praxis and on treatment efficacy. Participants are given many opportunities to question conceptual references, address core issues with Trainers, as well as test and practice their new skills.  More details are available at: http://cairn-counselling.tripod.com/indextwo.html

Cultural Immersion In-depth Training

CAIRN experience, based upon its Seminar organization conducted both in the EU and in Asia since the early 1980s, is that Experiential Training's contents and outcomes will largely differ if either conducted in their natural energy setting in Asia, or during some seminars or retreats in the EU. Our point of view is that if participants can afford it at both the resources and stamina level, the cultural immersion scheme within the natural setting of a selected Nepal / Himalayan power-site will be better supervised, more beneficial on the initiations point-of-view and offer more coherence and awareness.  However, CAIRN Introduction Seminars will also offer day-long workshops that will introduce and familiarize participants with the potentials of the Tsa-rLung practices or effective treatment, as well as with related divination and Rejuvenation approaches. CAIRN presenter will explain the basic principles of Tsa-rLung Healing and Rituals, and format it within a consensual curriculum with both didactic and experiential components. CAIRN workshops experiential in Nepal or EU are rich with self-awareness, clinical and application. More details at: http://cairn-counselling.tripod.com/indextwo.html


 

 

CAIRN Introductory Training  Seminars

The workshops elaborate the points of an experiential training curriculum: the concepts of healing, the traditional therapeutic relationship in the path to healing, the expected crises to be managed from a experiential training framework assessment, the role and status needed for a legal treatment relationship, and developments affecting the Ego.

The Bonpo and Nyingmapa Traditions of Dzogchen

Although nowadays Dzogchen teachings are found only in the old 
unreformed Tibetan schools of (Buddhist) Nyingmapas and so-called
non-Buddhist Bonpos, these teachings are substantially the same
in meaning and terminology in both traditions, as each can claim 
to have an unbroken lineage coming down to the present time from
the eighth century and even before. 

Both schools assert that Dzogchen did not originate in Tibet itself,
but had a Central Asian origin and was subsequently brought to Central 
Tibet by certain masters known as Mahasiddhas or great adepts. 
There thus would appear to exist two ancient and authentic lineages
for the Dzogchen teachings, the Nyigmapa and the Bonpo. 

Keeping in mind that the Celtic/Aryan tribes also historically migrated
from Central Asian steppes to Central Europe (La Tene) for one part,
with another going down to the Indian subcontinent, and that current
Celtic tradition research heritage shows many similarities between
the Himalayan and Celtic root concepts in Healing and Divination 
Shamanic Artefacts, Cairn Elixir hereby endeavours to pursue with 
experienced practitioners the experiential research and related 
powerplaces rituals survey of both the Nyingmapa and Bonpo
tradition of Dzogchen known as the Zhang-zhung Nyan-gyud. 

This may not only lead to why some Tibetan Dzogchen masters
had been interested late 1960s/early 1970s to build new Gompas 
(Monasteries) in Scotland and S-of-France on some selected Celtic, 
Cathars and/or Templars historical powerplaces (and why the rituals
or practices performed there by Tibetan Lamas or Western disciplines
become operational), but this may also be especially important for any
researchers attempt for synthesis based on experienced practices and 
on the historical (archetypal) origins of Dzogchen at the West of Tibet.

Keltic- Trilogy (Cairn Elixir) invites you to join Venerable Lama Tenzin 
Samphel (from the Nyingmapa Dudjom Lineage), Venerable Tringlay 
Wangyal Rimpoche (from the Bon-Po Terton Tulku Lineage) and 
Canadian Shamans Healing Trainers John Geeza and Julie Switaj 
(Heart&Work Healing Center, Canada), in these Introduction Seminars 
to the Dzogchen and Tibetan Shamans Healing & Divination
Practices, organized as 2 Days Experientials in Nice (South of France), 
London (UK) and Brussels (Belgium) in the period from October to
December 2003.

Tsa-Lung Energy Body Healing
 

Tibetan Traditional Healing "Tsa-rLung"  technics, are literally 
found in the scriptures dealing with  'channels-wind' and are 
also called 'hand healing', they being special energy projection /
visualization process  for energy healing preserved in Tibetan 
Medicine knowledge. 

Historically, as per the Tibetan tradition, it is said that it has been 
the source from which the technics of Reiki and Acupuncture have 
been developed...

For learning the technics of Tsa-Lung healing, our own body and 
mind must first be prepared for accumulating the giving healing 
energy. The channels in our body must be opened, cleansed,
be rendered more conscious by various breathing, visualization 
and meditation exercises, and the elements and humours must
become well-balanced. 

The " Tumo"  heat energy is to be generated, again by means of
tantras meditation, and when we become able to generate this 
energy source (heat), we then can consciously release the healing
energy from certain locations.

Next, we use various types of diagnosis methods and of visualization 
of the energy flows, either with sound, colours, mantras, mental 
powers, crystals or else, to guide this energy to self- healing, rejuvenation 
or treatment areas.

The Tsa-Lung Healing and Tibetan Medicine Introduction Seminars
include explanations of the paradigm, philosophy system and various 
healing technics involved, as well as a simple but very practical
development on the relations between the Tibetan Tantras, 
Vajrayana, and Thangkas paintings with the medical knowledge 
required for proper healing. 

Cairn Elixir Seminars have conceptual root- teachings based on theories 
transmitted and developed through current practitioners by either the Nyingma,
Geluk or Bon-Po traditional lineages. 

In this sense, a particular documentary attention has been brought to the more  recent research and publication of Tarab Tulku Rimpoche (Tarab Ladrang),  Namkai Norbu Rimpoche, Tenzin Wangyal Rimpoche, as well as of several reputed Amchis and Nagpas who are practicing in Nepal, Tibet TAR / China and/or in India/Sikkim. Links have been seeked and maintained with several US, UK or EU-based Himalayan and Tibetan Studies Digital Archives.

Current International Affairs enfolding in the strategic region of Nepal have
lately brought their share of interesting times, bringing to the fore the urgent
need for comparative studies of Western and Tibetan political, philosophical,
psychological and scientific theories to address current misrepresentations 
and to seek for more effective development  approaches.

Publishing of abstracts, organization of field-studies and arranging of training
seminars want to answer to the points listed above.
 
 







Working with the Elements 

Indigenous healing and spiritual traditions around the world are based on
an understanding of the five elements. In the Tibetan tradition, these are 
known as space, air, fire, water and earth, and are understood as the 
underlying energies from which the physical world, our bodies, our emotions,
and our minds arise. The elements are addressed in all nine levels of 
teachings of Bön, including shamanism, tantra and Dzogchen. 
 “The Healing Practice of the Five Elements Goddesses” was composed 
by Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche, and is explained in his latest book, 
“Healing with Form, Energy and Light: The Five Elements in
Tibetan Shamanism, Tantra, and Dzogchen”. 
 
 






Melong Divination 
 

The Melong is a small metal mirror of a shining yellow color.
The Melong is used for Divination.

Ta-Pa Nagpa can see the mirror change into a dark-color, then 
either smoky designs or wave-like curves in a lake, before other
manifestations and signs occur either pictures, like sequences 
in a film or letters. Letters require written questions, which have 
been given to the diviner.

A Nagpa Ta-Pa is a Tibetan Yogi who foretells using such
shining metal mirror called Melong to read the signs or 
letters, while a Mo-Pa is a person who does divination 
using a pair of dice or mala to see the numbers are both 
same, in that sense both fall under the common higher
practices attainments. 

Melong or Shamanic Mirror is an ancient mystical device that has 
far ranging applications.  Its origin dates back 5000 years to the ancient 
pre-Buddhist era of the original Tibetan Bon shamans, who were the 
astrologers, healers, soothsayers and magicians of the nomadic
inhabitants of the Tibetan plateau.  When Buddhism came to Tibet ,
many of these practices were absorbed into it giving Tibetan Buddhism 
some of its distinctive qualities.  Today the melong is still used and
worn by many lamas, astrologers and shamanic healer.

Although means of telling the future were employed in Tibet, before 
the advent of Buddhism, they are not regarded as an alien remnant outside 
the Buddhist framework that it is occasionally convenient to call upon. 
Rather,  they are used within the sphere of Buddhist concepts, functioning 
in accordance with Buddhist principles such as karma. There are no 
references  to divination in the collections of sutras, but many can be 
found in the tantras.

The person who performs ‘Ta’ is called Tapa or Ta-thapkhen. 
Most of the Ta-Pa’s have a Ta-Mig. Ta literally means hair 
and Mig means eye. 

The divination power from a  "Ta-Mig" lineage is extremely rare.
Ven. Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche was the only realized master-scholar 
who possesses all the knowledge of discovered treasure-texts teachings
and practices thoroughly.

Ta-Pa Nagpas practice long retreat, as per the instructions 
of their Guru and in accordance with the ‘Treasure-texts’, 
so that their meditation deity or root object of visualization 
appear as clear as a crystal.

The appearance of ‘Ta’ signs are usually like a stupa, a river, 
a rainbow, a highway, a flower, a vajra, a house, a bird or any
animals or anything. Then, in order to give the meaning or the
explanation for any signs that appeared in the metal mirror 
(melong) Nagpas go through the "Treasure-text" for
reference and to get the answer. 

This Seminar will review and explain some of the Melong practices,
more particularly in relation with  Bon-Po Dzogchen and Tsa-Lung

Healing Performing Arts

The Sacred Dance and other Mystical Arts of Tibet are performances and features have now become well known in the Western world. Monks in Pujas presenting dancing or multiphonic singing, wherein each monk simultaneously intones three notes of a chord, use instruments and pray while other dance with masks, have been repeatedly scheduled in concerts, wherein they also utilize the Tibetan Gompas (monasteries) traditional instruments, such as 10-feet long dungchen trumpets, drums, bells, cymbals and gyaling horns. Rich brocade costumes and masked dances, add to the exotic splendor.

But in our view, there may be much more potential in these acts, than just entertaining spectators!

The first step is of course to explore the significance and symbolism of the given sacred dance and its prayers, when linked to the referenced list of ritual dances in Tibetan Buddhism. Ones may examine the references given in the four lineages that developed sacred cham--the secret ritual dances of the Tibetan Buddhist monks--and achi lhamo storytelling folk dance and opera. Ones may get atuned to the mental and physical process of preparing for these dances, the meaning of iconography, costumes and masks, the spectrum of accompanying music, and the actual dance steps, as recorded in the choreography.

But all ancient Shamanic societies, throughout the world over, have conceived that ritual performance of sacred music and dance at a given auspicious time, may establish communication with the higher powers and brings thereupon healing, divination or inspiration to environmental, social and personal issues.

Similarly, the Tibetan sacred music and dances were not composed in any mundane manner. Rather, each piece was born centuries ago from a mystical visionary experience of a great yogi, Terton saint or sage, and transmitted from generation to generation in the unbroken lineage legacy.

The second step in our approach is accordingly to seek for and practices with selected Tsa-rLung Masters and Nagpas from recognized Tsa-rLung Healing Lineage Holders some upgraded synthesis on a modern form to master the process, generation and flow of sound healing, in a pioneering work with sacred instruments, artefacts and dance choregraphy which have been recognized by the Tibetan Lamas practitioners in sound based Tsa-rLung Healing work, Divination and Sacred Dance in the Himalayas.

The last and third step, then is the Keltic Trilogy of Embodiment, bringing East and West together within a personalized rituals, visualization practices and healing, using the Body of Light as universal reference.

 

 

 

Musicotherapy East & West

Bringing together East and West, using the Tibetan Tsa-rLung Healing power within dance and music will offer a much needed clarification and fusion of the ancient art of Tsa-rLung Healing within the modern context and tools, including modern music. The Cairn Tsa-rLung Performing Arts & Healing Center current comparative research in the Celtic artefacts and powerplaces for the utilisation, in situ and thereupon, of Tibetan Tsa-rLung Healing practices, embodiment, cleansing and divination, aims to reveal to all concerned the transcendental qualities of Sacred Dance and Chanting, and of the Healing Powers which may be found and transmitted sound, as well the transformational experience it may release for those who can hear it.
Comprising selected Tsa-rLung Lamas Healing performers and professional musicians, the Tsa-rLung Healing Sacred Sounds, Music, Mantras and Dance... will use a wide variety of Tibetan instruments, Himalayan bowls, tablas, prayer flutes, guitar, tamboura, Celtic harp and synthesizer to lift consciousness, and above all to transmit the Powers of Healing within Sound, Coulours and supporting Archetypes.

 

 

Other  Dzogchen and Healing Seminars

Although nowadays Dzogchen teachings are found only in the old 
unreformed Tibetan schools of (Buddhist) Nyingmapas and so-called non-Buddhist Bonpos, these teachings are substantially the same in meaning and terminology in both traditions, as each can claim  to have an unbroken lineage coming down to the present time from the eighth century and even before. 

Both schools assert that Dzogchen did not originate in Tibet itself, but had a Central Asian origin and was subsequently brought to Central  Tibet by certain masters known as Mahasiddhas or great adepts.  There thus would appear to exist two ancient and authentic lineages for the Dzogchen teachings, the Nyigmapa and the Bonpo. 

Keeping in mind that the Celtic/Aryan tribes also historically migrated from Central Asian steppes to Central Europe (La Tene) for one part, with another going down to the Indian subcontinent, and that current Celtic tradition research heritage shows many similarities between the Himalayan and Celtic root concepts in Healing and Divination  Shamanic Artefacts, Cairn Elixir hereby endeavours to pursue with  experienced practitioners the experiential research and related  powerplaces rituals survey of both the Nyingmapa and Bonpo tradition of Dzogchen known as the Zhang-zhung Nyan-gyud. 

This may not only lead to why some Tibetan Dzogchen masters
had been interested late 1960s/early 1970s to build new Gompas 
(Monasteries) in Scotland and S-of-France on some selected Celtic,  Cathars and/or Templars historical powerplaces (and why the rituals or practices performed there by Tibetan Lamas or Western disciplines become operational), but this may also be especially important for any researchers attempt for synthesis based on experienced practices and  on the historical (archetypal) origins of Dzogchen at the West of Tibet.
