The Nangpé Yoga Instructions of Yoga of the Venerable Kalu Rinpoche [1905-1989]. These are a specific teaching to accompany meditation practice, and the course will integrate both theory and movement.
‘This yoga is directed to the inside and leads to the understanding of the nature of the mind. It offers a harmonious set of dynamic exercises for the body speech and mind that are accessible to all, Buddhists and non Buddhists, young or old, beginners or advanced practitioners of other forms of yoga. These exercises include positions and symbolic guestures, the experience of space and motion, techniques of relaxation and massage, breathing practises, working on the subtle energies and the chakras, mantra recitation, and the experience of voidness and the clarity of mind’. Passage takenfrom Kalu Rinpocheʼs introduction to the instruction manual.
Lama Tsultrim Gelek
Lama Tsultrim took ordination in 1985 with Kalu Rinpoche, and was fully ordained by Bokar Rinpoche in 1988, after completing a three year, three month retreat in France. Ten years later he established the Dashang Buddhist Centre in Strasburg, under the guidance of Bokar Rinpoche. After the death of Bokar Rinpoche, Ladannma Tsultrim extended an invitation to Ringu Tulku, to take on the role of spiritual director of the centre which then became known as Bodhicharya France/Strasburg. Whilst the previous Kalu Rinpoche was alive he devised and taught a set of practices that became known as the ‘Kalu Yogas’. These he taught in Scotland, France and Belgium. Lama Tsultrim is one of those who received the teachings, and has been asked by Ringu Tulku to teach them to Bodhicharya Students. Lama Tsultrim and his students have organised the last six Bodhicharya France summercamps for Rinpoche. He runs the Bodhicharya retreat centre at Lusse, in eastern France, and teaches at centres across Europe.
