The Jnana Dakini Mandarava practice is one of the most significant practices in the teachings of Chögyal Namkhai Norbu for strengthening the life force. If our energy is weak or damaged, we are more open to negative influences and obstacles in our life and meditation. Together with Tsalung breathing and Chudlen, Mandarava practice directs the practitioner to integrate the essence of the elements in the body on a path toward the body of light and total realization.
Chogyal Namkhai Norbu Rinpoche (born 8 December 1938 in Dege, Eastern Tibet) is a teacher and master of Dzogchen, one of the teachings of Buddha. At an early age, he was recognized as the reincarnation of Adzam Drugpa, another great teacher of Dzogchen. He was later pronounced the mental manifestation (Mind Emanation) of Drug Shabdrung Rinpoche, another well known teacher.
The main teachers of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu were Changchub Dorje, Ayu Khandro and his uncles Togden Orgyen Tendzin and Jamyang Chokyi Wangchuk.
After completing his training in both Sutra and Tantra, he left Tibet and for many years taught Tibetology at the University of Napoli, Italy. Chogyal Namkhai Norbu Rinpoche began teaching Dzogchen in Italy in 1976, but has since organized International Dzogchen Community. The community established numerous centers (called Gars) throughout the world, the principal ones being in Italy, Venezuela, the United States, Argentina, Australia, and Russia.
