Padma Ling UK is delighted to announced the forthcoming visit of Gyetrul Jigme Rinpoche. Rinpoche-la will be teaching in the UK from the 10th to the 13th May 2013. Both Sanghas, Shambhala London and Padma Ling UK, are collaborating to organise different programs and teaching themes. Padma Ling UK has requested teaching with initiation of Yuthok Nyingtik.
Yuthok Nyingtik is a very important spiritual practice for Traditional Tibetan Medicine doctors and healing practitioners. Yuthok Nyingthig means “The Innermost Essence of the Teaching of Yuthok”. The practice was composed with the intention of leading practitioners to experience the union of medicine and spiritual practice. This perception is realised through the harmonious integration of body, mind and energy in the subtlest form of the five elements.
It is said that Yuthok Yonten Gonpo The Younger (1126-1202) created ‘Two Jewels’, namely the Four Tantras (rGyud bZhi) and Yuthok Nyingthik (gYu Thog sNying Thig). He gave the teachings and transmission for both of these Two Jewels to his heart-disciple – Sumtong Yeshe Zung (Tib. Sum sTon Yeshes gZhugs), who then maintained and perpetuated this tandem Lineage of the Four Tantras and Yuthok Nyingthik. The Yuthok Nyingthig Root Text is an expose of Yuthok’s spiritual teachings. Yuthok considered spiritual practices, yoga, and meditation to be an integral part of every physician’s training. The Yuthok Nyingthig practice itself is associated with the development of special skills of omniscience and clairvoyance which then help the physician to become a greater healer.
Teaching and initiation will take place on Monday 13th of May 2013.
All teachings and initiation will take place at The London Shambhala Centre, 27 Belmont Close, SW4 6AY, London.
