The Practice of Kundalini/Tummo in the Lukhang Temples- The Temple of Serpent Spirits
Located in the walls of the Lukhang Murals (which translates as ‘The Temple of Serpent Spirits’), the practice of Kuṇḍalinī or the Secret Practice of Noetic Fire (Tummo) are found inside. The Tibetan word for ‘fierce’ [fierce hot savage woman] is also called caṇḍālī and embedded “in the teachings that developed in Tiber’s earliest transmission of tantric Buddhism” (Essay By Ian Baker- Moving towards Perfection: Physical Culture in Dzogchen as Revealed in Tibet’s Lukhang Murals, Ian A. Baker, Page 1). Some Haṭhayogic techniques are incorporated in the practice of raising one’s Kuṇḍalinī through inner fire meditation or the Dzogchen teachings (the Indo-Tibetan Buddhist practice of mediation) of breathing, fixation and bodily postures.
