Balancing the Three Humors

Postby Clarence » Mon Jun 18, 2012 9:03 am

So, after yesterday's talk about the practice of the night and balancing the three humors, I have some questions I hope you can answer.

Personally, I have a hard time remembering my dreams. It seems I sleep pretty deeply and, like Rinpoche said, don't feel like doing a lot of physical stuff during the day. All symptoms of heavy ....... I couldn't make out what he said. Thing is, I don't sleep during the day nor do I fall asleep during meditation.
So, what could I do to lower the level of ....... which makes for the heavy sleep? What diet is best? I am a vegetarian and would prefer to stay one.

Many thanks, Clarence

As I'm interested in that point too, I noticed that Rinpcohé says no nap during the day, do not sleep in a room too dark, too closed. He spoke of "bak-en" or something like that (I have already asked the question in another thread) ... hes says it's contrary to lung, for which bimala and agar is good, but did'nt said what was good for that.

By understanding everything you perceive from the perspective of the view, you are freed from the constraints of philosophical beliefs.
By understanding that any and all mental activity is meditation, you are freed from arbitrary divisions between formal sessions and postmeditation activity.

You have an imbalance of bad kan, phlegm. More exercise, lighter diet, etc. Go to an ayruveda practitioner for a kapha balancing diet or consult an ayurvedic cooking manual for the same.

Do yantra, a lot.

Is an imbalance of phlegm also expressed through physical phlegm i.e. mucus from the nose and phlegm in the mouth?

'

Can you practice Yantra yoga from DVDs or does one have to learn them in person first for some sort of lineage transmission??
