Ancient Bon Meditation of the Five Elements With Tempa Lama

A Benefit For Humla Fund’s Tibetan Medical Clinic In Humla, Nepal

According to Tibetan Bon, our bodies are made of the five elements: earth, water, fire, air, and space. During the teaching of this practice, we will learn the meditation and visualization for each element.

Tempa Lama will explain the role of the five elements in our human existence and their relationship to the functioning and wellbeing of our bodies and minds. Each element relates to one of the major organs: the earth, to the spleen; water, to the kidneys; fire, to the liver; air, to the lungs; and space, to the heart. Each element also relates to one of the five core afflictions: ignorance, desire-attachment, hatred-anger, jealousy, and pride.Tempa Lama will explain the benefits of this practice and how we can use it to strengthen our health and energy and to clear the five afflictions. He will also explain how to use the five elements practice to strengthen the La (soul), Sog (life force), and Tse (life span). 

Tempa Dukte Lama was born in the Humla Valley of Nepal, close to the Tibetan Border, into a family of Bon and Buddhist practitioners. His grandfather was a village shaman priest, called Drang Rig. Tempa Lama lived closely with his grandfather and often accompanied him on visits to sick and dying people. At the age of six, Tempa Lama entered Menri Monastery in Dolanji, India, where he was placed under the care of H.H. Lungtok Tenpai Nyima Rinpoche, the spiritual head of the Bon tradition. Tempa Lama has been living and teaching in the US, as well as teaching in Canada, Mexico, and Europe, since 2000. In 2013, Tempa Lama co-founded Humla Fund, a non-profit organization dedicated to strengthening the Bon culture and traditions in the Humla region of Nepal through access to quality education, healthcare and sustainable economic development.
