Nangten Menlang International, Buddhist Medical Centre

The Nangten Menlang International (NMI) Buddhist Medicine organisation is a growing international network of practitioners with the aim of spreading the knowledge and tradition of Tibetan Medicine and the Tibetan Buddhist Tantrayana.

Nangten Menlang was founded by Tulku Lobsang in 2002 in India and the international headquarters was established in Vienna, Austria in 2005.

Led by Tulku Lobsang, NMI offers many teachings and trainings on Tibetan Buddhism and the healing wisdom of the Tantrayana.

The practices taught include movement practices :

  • Tibetan healing yoga Lu Jong,

  • the Tog Chöd wisdom sword,

more subtle body practices:

  • Tsa Lung breath work,

  • the inner fire Tummo,

Tibetan medicine teachings:

  • Traditional Tibetan Medicine,

meditation practices, traditional teachings, transmissions

  • Rigpa, Bliss, ...,

  • Shine Meditation,

Although the teachings are diverse, each of these methods and wisdoms enables students to achieve greater health and happiness by teaching them to connect to their own innate wisdom.

It is also possible for anyone to take part in a training course and become a teacher and thus further spread valuable practices such as Lu Jong, Tog Chöd and mindfulness.
