This remedy has been used for hundreds of years by Tibetan doctors to promote deep rejuvenation, healing, and overall wellness. We are calling this medicine The Marvelous Rejuvunation Pills of the Tibetan Yogis.

It’s effects are profound, and the list of people who have used it and attested to its power is enough to make any one interested in Tibetan Buddhism, Tibetan medicine, meditation, herbs, and natural healing want to try it. Some of these include Yeshe Tsogyal, the spiritual partner and main disciple of Padmasambhava, who brought Buddhism to Tibet; Chatral Rinpoche, one of the most respected and oldest living masters of Tibetan Buddhism today; and Mipham Rinpoche, one of the greatest geniuses of all time, known as the Leonardo Da Vinci of Tibet.

More about this remedy: Chulen (Tibetan: bChud len) is a Tibetan word meaning “taking the essence”. They function in Tibetan Medicine as a kind of “super vitamin”, and act to replenish the deepest energy in the body. They are made for and taken by some of the greatest Masters of Tibetan Buddhism alive today, such as Chatral Rinpoche, Namkhai Norbu Rinpoche, and many others. These particular Chulen are made by the famous Tibetan doctor Ngawang Drakpa and consecrated in an elaborate ritual ceremony by the great master His Eminence Trulshik Rinpoche, the chief disciple of Kyabje Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche. When taking the pills it is common to feel increased energy, surprising mental clarity, greater physical strength, less need for sleep, a decreased appetite, a more joyous mood, and a considerable deepening of spiritual practice and meditation.

Rejuvenate your whole being with Chulen.

Chulen is Tibetan for “taking the essence” and is connected with the ancient Indian tradition of rejuvenation called Rasayana. These pills act to replenish the deepest energy in the body and can help to extend the life and increase the health of those who take them. Chulen can be used in two ways: one as a replacement for food and the other as a type of super vitamin. The practice of replacing food with chulen and eating only two or three pills each day is famous throughout Tibetan history and there are stories of such luminaries as Yeshe Tsogyal, Nyala Pema Dudul and Adzom Drukpa living for many years simply on essence pills such as these. In this contemplative tradition of chulen, the pills are used in conjunction with various physical yogas and meditations in order to recognize the nature of awareness and its relationship to the pure essence of the elements. In the process, the practitioner gradually gives up solid food and takes only pills. The accomplishment of the practice is the development of the ability to live on the pure essence of the elements alone. In recent history, the living master Namkhai Norbu Rinpoche is believed to have overcome phase three leukemia through the use of chulen just a few years ago. In a commentary on the practice he states:

“Chu is the essential substance of the elements: it maintains the physical body and, if our energy is uncoordinated, it co-ordinates it, if it is weak, it reinforces it. Therefore, chulen is useful, above all, to harmonize energy and develop clarity…The Body of Light (or “Rainbow Body”, Tibetan: Jalu) can manifest when the principles of Dzogchen are combined with Chulen.”

These particular chulen pills are prepared by Chatral Rinpoche’s physician in Kathmandu, Nepal, for Rinpoche’s personal use. They are made according to the instructions in a terma revealed by the famous Mipham Rinpoche which is connected with Black Manjushri. Taking the pills To gain the most benefit from this supplement, one should take one or two pills first thing in the morning on an empty stomach. To make an auspicious connection with the lineage associated with the pills, one can take the first dose around 5 pm on a Thursday. Chew the pills and swallow with a good amount of warm water. Wait at least thirty minutes before eating. It is common when taking the pills to feel increased energy and to need less sleep. One may also experience decreased appetite, as well as effects such as increased mental clarity, a sense of physical lightness and strength, and a more joyous mood. While these particular chulen are good for all body types, those with high blood pressure should avoid them. In particular, they benefit the kidneys, liver, heart and gastric systems. As an effect of the blessings associated with the pills, spiritual practice may be enhanced and a deepening of meditative experience may be noted. Replacing meals with chulen is not recommended. This type of advanced practice is best undertaken in retreat and under the guidance of an accomplished Lama.

Chulen is closely connected to the Tibetan practice of alchemy.

The Dzogchen teachings are considered the pinnacle of Buddhist meditation practices, and often the practices are centered around working directly with the nature of the five elements. The five element practices that Nyala Pema Dudul revealed as terma (hidden treasure teachings hidden by Padmasambhava and rediscovered by later masters) was called “Sky-Encompassing Self-Liberation” (Kha-Khyab Rang-Drol in Tibetan), and within that series of teachings there is a practice of alchemy called “Chulen of the Three Dimensions.” There are many types of chulen that have various applications. Tsi-dang contains eight ingredients which work together to strengthen and coordinate the function of the major organs. Its main effect is physical health and youthfulness. Another type of chulen is called rotsa, which is used specifically to strengthen and balance energy; so there are many different kinds of chulen traditions and medicines.

In the contemplation tradition of chulen, the pills are used in conjunction with meditations and yoga in order to recognize awareness as the pure nature of the elements. The practice is a gradual process where the practitioner weans himself from eating solid food, and attainment of the practice is the development of the ability to subsist on the pure essence of the elements themselves. At that point, the practitioner no longer has to eat anything.

The teaching instructs the practitioner on the preparation of medicinal pills, and the method of visualization, breathing and yogic techniques to reintegrate the practitioner’s inner and outer experience of the elements back into its natural state. The terma text itself mentions that when the great saint Yeshe Tsogyal asked Guru Padmasambhava for these teachings, he replied,

“Listen. There are many methods to achieve total realization, but in particular, there is the Chulen of the Three Dimensions, which embodies infinite qualifications.”

In Drubje Pema Dudul’s biography, it is said that he practiced Chulen with a little solid food for the first three years, Chulen of medicinal pills for the next three years, and Chulen of absorbing the essence of the elements directly from space for the final three years of his retreat. At the conclusion of his nine year retreat he had attained full enlightenment as his teacher the Mahasiddha Choying Rangdrol had predicted.

When Drubje Pema Dudul knew his time was near, he called all of his students back to the area where he lived, and after giving them each his heart advice and practicing the Feast Offering with them, he had them follow him up a mountain, where he set up a small tent and asked them to sew the door shut. With the instructions that they should practice the Feast Offering together for a week before checking on him, they witnessed numerous rainbows appear over the mountain and the surrounding area. When they returned to the spot where his tent stood, they found it still sewn shut; opening it, they found his body had disappeared. His meditation belt and cloak were in a heap, within which they found all of his hair and twenty nails from his hands and feet.

“…it makes your mind extremely clear. It helps the energy in the meditation. The secondary benefit is that it prolongs your lifespan and it reduces your gray hair and wrinkles. It also makes your face and body more beautiful.”

-Choden Rinpoche on Chulen. Choden Rinpoche is a great master of the Gelugpa tradition who accomplished several long Chulen retreats.

The benefits of Chulen are so numerous that they are simply hard to describe. As with everything in life, there is only one way to find out… and that is to try it yourself!
