Tummo Meditation- Fire up your Kundalini

3:16 pm Kundalini Meditations

Buddhist Tum-mo Meditation

I came across this very interesting article from the Harvard Gazette on Buddhist Meditation. Its actually an older article and the results of the study have been around for some time.

The skinny on the article is that a Buddhist monk is able to place himself into a meditative state that allows him to heat up his body to a point where he can make 3X6 foot sheets that were soaked in cold water (49 degrees) produce steam, instead of making him freeze to death.

This specific type of meditation is called Tum-mo or Tummo meditation. Tummo is another word for Kundalini energy, for it is the fire within.  By focusing the mind and tapping into the power of Tum-mo (Kundalini) the monk is able to heat his body beyond normal levels.
The doctrine of the Buddha teaches that sufferings comes from attachments to impermanent objects. And that one can work to free themselves from attachment by following the Middle Way. From this space thoughts pass, events occur positive or negative, yet the mind remains free.  The Buddha follows the path of Wisdom, while Christ follows the path of love, yet they are two perspectives on the same energetic source.

As those of you that follow this site may know I have been proposing some interesting experiments on how to test the validity of chakra energy healing. Such as:

But here we have a real live scientific example on how the subtle realms and meditation can be brought into physical reality and measured. (I think the scanning insturments used in the study have several additional implication for testing.)

Over the course of the next few years, more and more studies such as these will be done in order to satisfy the Western scientific brain.  Which is all honesty has a right to be satisfied.  These will be only the beginning of this line of scientific discovery and will lay the foundation for the true science of the soul, Raja Yoga, to test its validity and value.  The energies of Aquarius carry with them the conditioning required to create proof of the human soul.  What an exciting time we live in :)

Gotta give a shout out to make money, for the article forward.  He located the article via,a Super Article.

Note to Daniel Tynski (author of the super article) While the ability to create steam from cold sheets drapped around ones body, may seem like a Super Power, to quote B.K.S. Iyengar and Patanjali, “these are simply the finest powers of nature.”  In truth the ability to create the steam is a by product of the level of attainment a specific unit of consciousness has achieved.  Levitation is another naturally occuring power in nature once a certain level of consciousness is reached,  most people know this power to be walking on water.

    Interesting article. I love this subject, but would like to see the results of the practice in the form of “scientific data” as well. It would be great if my yoga studio had some biofeedback devices available. Anyway….a comment about the opening story…. 49 degrees would not cause water or a yogi to freeze.

    Hey thanks for the note, i actually don’t have access to the results in scientific form, but I suspect you could work to track it down.

    I am not a scientist, but this article provides info that the cold tempertures could in fact cause hypothermia, http://www.findarticles.com/p/articles/mi_m3225/is_n2_v45/ai_12019345

    I find this subject fascinatingThe problem with meditation and gaining spirituality can only come with practise, which takes a long time so you do not benefit quickly, which got me frustrated until I found this program now on my website to be excellent. It is as simple as listening to a cd!

    Once you have been doing it a couple of weeks or more you notice that you can relax more easily, sleep seems deeper and non disturbed and also a very personal thing I have stopped having very dark thoughts about constant disasters happening to me and my family, this alone was worth the small cost and the tremendous support you get from the company.

    The beauty is that you can try it for free!

    audio guidance is important, in the beginning there was the Word…

    I also strongly suggest taking a class with a person to help guide you!

    I haven’t heard of Tummo Meditation before than again one is always coming across something new when one is on a path.

    This is really a demonstration of mind over ones body. In reality the depth of ones gifts is strong as ones internal beliefs. As has been mentioned above in the article, Buddha’s comment: we must leave attachments in order to move forward but that is one of the most difficult things in most peoples lives to release attachments because that is the reason we are all here – working on our attachments.

    Attachments – cords – or giving away your energy they are all related.

    The book Reiki Tummo is the most useful resource I’ve come across on the subject. I’ve not spent the time surfing the web to find one. In all honestly I’ve not been able to spend a ton of time researching Reiki Tummo, as I’ve been focused on Kundalini Yoga. Good luck in your search, please drop by when you find useful resources.

    This is the technique used by the “Ice Man” who was on a recent Channel 4 documentary. He ran a marathon in the Artic through the use of this breathing technique.

    What a great article! Thanks very much!
