Healing Arts In Kalachakra System
If we treat Kalachakra in religious perspective, then it is
a ritual that combines wisdom and casual methodologies. It is through lengthy
breathing and meditation exercises in the achievement of supreme joy. Kalachakra
teaching recognises that our body is the source of all accomplishments. Without
our body, then we shall not attain accomplishments; so it is of utmost
importance to maintain a healthy body through special exercises to tune up our
hearts and nadis. In the event that we fall sick, then we can use breathing
exercises coupled with selected various plants, animals, minerals etc. to make
medications for sickness treatments.
The main practice of Kalachakra breathing exercise is called
the ‘vase breathing’ (宝瓶气). Other
related one would be the ‘vajra recitations’ (金刚诵). Both of these exercises belonged to part of
Mahamudra (大手印) system.
There are two methods to disperse sick prana (气) in Kalachakra: the internal disperse and external
disperse. When sick prana is led to the heart and transformed into bright
wisdom prana, then it is called internal disperse; if the sick prana is
dispersed all over the body and discharged through our skin pores, then it is
known as external disperse.
For example, there are about 20 sources of lung irritations
lies in our forehead and head. So, one should perform vase breathing at the
forehead to remove various lung sicknesses. If one fails to perform vase
breathing, then the sick prana would cause gallbladder problems. Hence he/she
should first exhaust out the sick dirty prana and then perform vase breathing
to contain fresh air. The saliva hence produced can cure gallbladder sickness.
Likewise, throat, heart, edema, eyes sicknesses could be cured by doing vase
breathings in various body parts.
Other than that of the breathing exercises, there is also a
host of precious formulas to cure various sicknesses such as tumours, cancers
and other common and not so common diseases. For example warm urine in the
morning can cure toothache and bad breath. Breathing of cold air in the morning
can cure headache, urine and water can be used to cure eye and ear sickness;
peppers, piper and ginger can stimulate one’s spirit.
can be cured by applying the gum from Agarwood tree (沉香). Nutmeg can be used to cure mouth and teeth
diseases. The method for making the medication is to boil 1 part of nutmeg with
8 parts of water until the water becomes one quarter. A toothache patient
should drink the above nutmeg soup together with milk. It is recorded that the
leaves of Nutmeg tree can also be used. Other types of herbs such as Nagakitsa
can be used to cure nose disease.
It is certainly true that Kalachakra tantra has greatly
enhanced and integrated with Tibetan medicine forming a unique treatment system
on clinical diagnosis, use of medications and disease prevention theories and
methods. Perhaps we should explore more on the non-religious aspects of
Kalachakra knowledge instead of just perform chanting for hours.
