Tibetan yoga: famous technicians and grade levels

Throughout a long time Tibet was closed for foreign citizens. The certain educated people got into it only therefore it was shrouded in mystery and myths about exercises and improving systems which are applied by the monks living in the Tibetan mountains. And only with distribution of Tibetan Buddhism on the world in the XX century became known of these phenomena slightly more. About one of such secret exercises — the Tibetan yoga — the speech in our article will go.

Origin of the Tibetan yoga happened at the beginning of the I millennium, its formation lasted up to the 18th century. Long time it remained unknown to Europeans and Americans. Then some teachers of the Tibetan spiritual communities began to train in ancient Tibetan secrets.

The most known schools are Yantra-yoga based on the ancient text Connection of the Sun and the Moon and Trul-khor (a magic wheel).

The main emphasis in the Tibetan yoga is placed for psychoemotional work: visualization, mantras, meditations, etc. Thanks to the Tibetan yoga really to improve a condition of the health, to level an emotional background, to adjust a metabolism, to normalize work of internals.

Whether you know? In 2001-2006 in Tibet at the height of 4-5 km above sea level constructed the railroad by which the pressurized cars where oxygen via air conditioning system and to each place moves ply. Air at such height is very discharged, it is difficult for them to breathe.

In spite of the fact that the Tibetan Yantra has a set of common features with the Indian Hatha yoga, they pursue the different aims. The Indian yogis improve the body, and Tibetan pay attention to development of mind.

They seek to clean reason from negative emotions, learn to stay in a constant condition of a relaxation, to get rid of tension and to reach release — natural mind.

In Yantra-yoge the asanas are applied only with meditations. They do not keep a long time in a statics. Time of performance of an asana is evenly distributed between entry into it, stay and an exit from it.

As Tibetans are adherents of the fact that at men and women the energy proceeds on different sides of a body, and asanas are carried out not symmetrically, and in one party. Less important role, in comparison with Hatkhoy, is allocated for synchronization of the movement and breath here. The Tibetan asanas are simpler therefore they are not suitable for people who wish to get rid by means of yoga of excess weight.

The system of training in the Tibetan yoga is conditionally divided into 3 stages: preliminary, the main and final. During each of them the pupil should do a certain work.

During a preliminary stage the person wishing to comprehend the Tibetan yoga will need to study initial texts. Then to complete a preliminary course of a psychopower training.

The person will have to meditate long and diligently. During meditations to eradicate the defects, to eliminate egoistical aspirations, to aim efforts at the development only of merits, tranquility development.

At this stage the asanas similar to those which practice in Hatha yoga are applied. Along with them visualization, mantras, prayers, breathing exercises, charts symbols (yantra) practice. After development of all necessary material during preliminary preparation the pupil is allowed to pass to the next, main stage of studying the Tibetan yoga.

During this stage the set of visualization (creations of images), work with mantras, objects which help the pupil to comprehend multidimensionality of space practices, to be cleaned, develop chakras, power channels.

The stage is difficult in development. On its realization the different people will need various amount of time, sometimes decades.

The pupil enters the final stage changed, with the consciousness which turned into other reality. He is able to operate own consciousness and to reach release. At this stage various practicians who are carried out at different times day are applied.

The Tibetan yoga cannot be equated to remedial gymnastics and to advise for disposal of any problems with health. The main thing what it is directed to, is a comprehension by the person of, acceptance of and improvement. Therefore it is recommended to those who wishes:
