Consciousness and your constitution

Desire dissolves the ego. Desire is a product of the ego, it drives it. The ego is always desiring and so by turning it’s attention to god and through desire it is destroyed. To return to wholeness is true health. Without being in your true nature there is already a wound and you feel separate. We Indulge in things of the senses to feel wholeness again. Yoga is the spiritual side and teaches us to feel oneness and Ayurveda is the healing side.

Characteristics of the Doshas in people

Pitta- focused, directed, logical, speak clearly. Out of balance. Angry, critical, judgemental, prone to burnout. Good for leaders

Vatta, pitta, kapha, Rajas and tamas all cause diease only sattva doesn’t


Tibetan Ayurveda

bhaisajyguru (sanskrit) and sangye menla ( tibetan)

Invoke the medicine Buddha so that we awaken that which can heal us within: Tay yah tah Om bah Kahn beh Kahn dzen maha beh Kahn dzen rah dzah Sah mood gah Tay so hah
Power of the mantra is in the sound that the Sanskrit works through your mind. Accessing something within the self with the mantra.

Om mani pad me hum

Why do we suffer? The origins of all suffering and disease is ignorance, attachment and aggression.
There are spiritual poisons, they are veiled expression of our true potential. We can understand our potentials by purifying. When we understand our body we become a rainbow body and have unlimited mind with joy and spontaneity. We are able to do things that deftly normal laws of reality.

There are absolute dharma which is contemplations, prayers, visualizations, mantras and relative activities that support the spiritual practices.
Relative dharmas are astrology, geomancy, arts, linguistics, medicine.

Medicine is understanding we are not separate from nature. Understanding the five elements and how they help support us in the environment.
The awakening of the medicine Buddha was magnetizing and all the enlightened beings from other realms came as they were called, like brahma etc.
ayurveda got transmitted from the Buddhas family the shakya muni Buddha tribe and from Nepal emerged. Ayurveda came in from the mongols too and from you yonten gonpo

Four levels of Tibetan Ayurveda :
lifestyle – diet, exercise, hygiene, meditation.
Detoxification and rejuvenation is massage,hydro therapies, supplementation
Unavoidable interventions- surgery, acupuncture, moxabustion
Spiritual medicine – shamanic practices, when visited by entities can get rid of them. Most invasive

Any medicine that creates a side effect is not a medicine
Why did you get sick in the first place? There is always a story.
First sign of healing is asking for help.
