Introduction to the Preliminary Practices of the Yuthok Nyingthig: The Spiritual Practice of Tibetan Physicians

  • Flanders House 2926 NE Flanders Street Portland, OR, 97232 United States (map)

The Yuthok Nyingthik (Tib. གཡུ་ཐོག་སྙིང་ཐིག་), the 'Heart Essence of Yuthok', is a complete cycle of Vajrayana Buddhist practice, beginning with the preliminary practices and progressing through the highest spiritual methods. Its concise techniques bring about worldly benefits, such as improved health and longevity, as well as the ultimate benefit of complete spiritual realization. As the main spiritual practice of Tibetan physicians, the Yuthok Nyingthig also contains unique practices that heighten the intuition and healing capacities of the doctor.

In this talk, we will discuss and practice parts of the Ngöndro (Tib. སྔོན་འགྲོ་) or 'preliminary practices' of the Yuthok Nyingthig, the root of the tree from which all other Yuthok Nyingthig practices grow. This is an opportunity to learn about and make a connection with this profound cycle of practice, and is a good introduction to Sorig Khang Portland's monthly Yuthok Nyingthig Ngöndro practice.
