Our spiritual SKẎ Teachings introduce this 'Fifth Trunk' of the medical science Sowa Rigpa called 'Mantra Healing'. This therapeutic method works through the power of vibration, a subtle part of the Sorig energies. Originating from Tibetan, Sanskrit, or the secret Dakini language, mantras can be learned and used by anyone regardless of cultural or religious background.
Our 1-2 days teachings are open to the public and intended for any interested person regardless of professional background or spiritual affiliation. See teaching
TEACHINGS & TRANSMISSIONS / MANTRA HEALING
Mantra Healing classes come with the proper explanations and practical session, as well as retreat instructions. As spiritual practice transmissions and teachings of Mantra Healing are given by Dr. Nida Chenagtsang, a holder of its transmission lineage as appointed by Khenpo Tsültrim Gyeltsen. Since certain healing mantras require the completion of specific retreats in order to be activated, guided retreats for mantra accumulation may be offered after each given teaching and transmission. The practice in retreats is a way of single-mindedly focusing oneself onto a spiritual topic for a time - a practice known in probably all religious or spiritual traditions. Once engaged in the mantra retreats they not only help to concentrate the mind but access hidden healing powers connected to healing mantras. Any retreat, whether guided or done in solitude, can only be engaged in after having received the respective teachings and transmissions. Certain transmissions and teachings are given by qualified guides by order of Dr. Nida Chenagtsang.
Mantra Healing is a natural cure in tune with the universe's inherent vibration. It can be used for oneself or others as supportive medical treatment with no side effects or to individually enhance spiritual practice.
As both a medical and a Vajrayana Buddhist path of practice, Mantra Healing requires a respectful and committed approach. Though Dr. Nida Chenagtsang has opened this practice to practitioners of any spiritual path not requiring them to be Buddhists as would be the tradition we ask to adhere to general guidelines of mutual respect, openness, and friendship. Those wishing to commit to samayas, a set of vows generating the bond between guru, disciple, and tradition - as is typical for Vajrayana traditions - receive these through the empowerment included in our Mantra Healing classes by Dr. Nida Chenagtsang as a lineage holder. For more information for students new to this field, it is recommended to attend the spiritual SKẎ Teachings.
Any conflicts regarding the commitment to another school or lineage must be strictly solved on the individual level and/or with the respective authorities of that tradition. Dr. Nida Chenagtsang may offer general advice if requested, but he will not take sides of any school nor will he participate in conversion to any school or tradition.
By taking the samayas of the Yuthok Nyingthig for those who wish, students become part of the spiritual community of Yuthok Sangha headed by Dr. Nida Chenagtsang, enabling them to connect with other practitioners, access internal information, and attend advanced teachings. There are no fee requirements in order to be part of this community, neither is it an obligation to engage in any practice on a daily or otherwise regular basis - any commitments to specific practices of the Yuthok Nyingthig or Mantra Healing are based on the individual's understanding and decision. Any spiritual experiences exchanged in the community or personal teachings received remain within their respective context. The Yuthok Sangha is open to any members of other communities. Being part of Yuthok Sangha does not prevent one from entering into other communities with respect to their samayas.
