Trul khor

Tsa lung Trul khor (Sanskrit: vayv-adhisra magical movement instrument, channels and inner breath
currents), known in short as Trul khor magical instrument or magic circle (adhisra[1] ) is a Vajrayana
discipline which includes pranayama and body postures
(asanas). From the perspective of Dzogchen, the mind
is merely vyu breath in the body. Thus working with
vyu and the body is paramount, while meditation on the
other hand is considered contrived and conceptual.
Namkhai Norbu, a prominent proponent of trul khor,
prefers to use the Sanskrit equivalent term, Yantra Yoga,
when writing in English. Trul khor derives from the
instructions of the Indian mahasiddhas who founded
Vajrayana.
Trul khor traditionally consists of 108 movements, including bodily movements (or dynamic asanas), incantations (or mantras), pranayama and visualizations. The
ow or vinysa of movements are likened to prayer beads.
Trul khor asanas are depicted on the walls of the Dalai
Lama's summer temple of Lukhang.

Lung

Main article: Lung (Tibetan Buddhism)


rlung (Wylie) is equivalent to the Sanskrit vyu.

English discourse

Namkhai Norbu opened the English discourse on Trul


Khor with his treatise on Yantra Yoga,[2] essentially a
commentary on a practical yoga manual by Vairotsana.
Namkhai Norbu tilled the ground for the dissemination
of Yantra Yoga through his practical teaching and esoteric transmission of this discipline within the International Dzogchen Community which he founded post 1975
from its seat in Italy, Merigar.

Chaoul (2006) has opened the discourse of Bon traditions


of Trul Khor into Western scholarship in English with
his thesis from Rice University.[3] In his work, Chaoul
makes reference to a commentary by the famed Bonpo
Dzogchen master, Shardza Tashi Gyaltsen.
