Lama Pema Dorje Rinpoche


This Tibetan Buddhist yoga lengthens the life of the body and stabilizes the mind. The physical benefits include a good constitution, a comfortable body, less sickness, and improved digestion. Also, the body’s essence will increase, and the body will maintain strength, healthy joints, easier movement (more flexibility), and clear eyes. Lujong will also slow the aging process and give a longer life.


The Ali Kali Dance of the Alphabet  

This is an unstructured movement and dance practice that brings emotional well-being. It can dispel sadness, darkness, drowsiness, and restore a normal state of emotional wellness and happiness.

“The Lu Jong practice has been taught now for several years. People from all directions of the world have expressed deep thanks for the benefits and blessings they have received from this practice, which makes me happy. It has always been my wish that Lu Jong will benefit the mind and body of whoever has interest in these teachings. Hearing that Lu Jong has benefited many of my students gives me more energy to continue teaching the Lu Jong Chhime Palter practice for all students who are sincerely interested.” —Lama Pema Dorje Rinpoche
