It is important that the future teacher has the pure motivation to help others, to feel love for the practice inspired by their own personal experience and great respect for the precious lineage of Tog Chöd of Tulku Lobsang Rinpoche.

These educations are certified by Nangten Menlang International, the organization for the preservation of ancient Tantrayana wisdom and Tibetan Buddhist culture whose founder is Tulku Lobsang.

This education offers a personal work on the body and the spirit in connection with the philosophy of the Buddhist Tantrayana. Tog Chöd is a moving meditation that helps develop clarity of mind. Tog Chöd is a complete method that works as long as it respects its integrity. It is essential to understand that the elements that comprise its practice cannot be mixed with other traditions, just as other traditions cannot integrate the practice of Tog Chöd. When we do Tog Chöd, we do Tog Chöd, we do not add Indian yoga or reiki ... in the same way, when we practice Indian yoga or when we do reiki, no elements from Tog Chöd are added to it. Splitting the practices is a pledge of respect for Tulku Lobsang and the guarantee of a method that will bring its benefits.

Here are the thoughts of Tog Chöd:

There is no enemy outside of yourself.

The past is your enemy; the future is your demon.

Until you know everything about everything, there is only one way to focus your life. Decide.

Change one; change everything


You must participate 100% of the education. If you cannot come for the whole education, you can catch up either by setting up a catch-up course (paying). No refund will be made if you decide to stop the education.

However, it is possible for you, either because you had to stop the education temporarily, or because you do not feel ready to take the practical exam, or because you did not pass the practical exam, to join the next education at no additional cost.


Theoretical study is carried out through education and the study of a manual which is issued to you in PDF format as part of the education. The various chapters of the manual are delivered to you online on your extranet as we progress. The complete PDF version will be sent to you as soon as we have finalized the oral transmission. If you stop the education before having finalized it, then you will only have received the chapters corresponding to the courses you have taken.

An extranet located on our site www.e-yogameditation will bring together all the elements of the course.



Tulku Lobsang Rinpoche received the teachings of Lu Jong from the Bön tradition at the age of 11. At the same time, he received the teachings and transmissions of almost all the Tibetan lineages, except those of the Nyingma tradition. This approach is very rare because it is very difficult. He is thus considered Rimé, that is to say non-sectarian. He studied Buddhist meditation, medicine and astrology. In contact with Westerners, Tulku Lobsang decided to collect Lu Jong exercises from different traditions and lineages, then he modified and adapted them for the human body of Western man so that people of all ages and physical conditions can practice them.
