Chulen Ngakpo is the newest member of our diverse and unique line of essence extraction formulas. Made according to the instructions found in the Nyingpa school of Tibetan Vajrayana Buddhism, this formula is traditionally used to support yogic practitioners seeking to deepen their awareness of subtle energetic processes in the mind and body. While going without food for a time - sometimes 30 days or longer - the yogin's awareness and energy are heightened through the use of formulas such as Chulen Ngakpo.
This particular formulas has a strong energizing effect and can dampen hunger significantly, so keep this in mind if you are attempting to gain weight or supplementing with Chulen to recover from illness or surgery.
To gain the most benefit from this supplement, you can take one pill first thing in the morning on an empty stomach. Chew the pill and swallow with a good amount of warm water. Wait at least thirty minutes before eating.
It is common when taking the pills to feel increased energy and a need for less sleep. You may also experience decreased appetite, increased mental clarity, a sense of physical lightness and strength, and a more joyous mood. Specifically, they benefit the kidneys, liver, heart and gastric systems. As an effect of the blessings associated with the pills, you may experience an enhanced spiritual practice and deepened meditation.
Replacing meals with Chulen is not recommended. This type of advanced practice is best undertaken in retreat and under the guidance of an accomplished Lama or yogin.Depending on one's sensitivity to new formulas, consider discussing your use of this formula with your doctor. This is especially important if you are taking other medications, being treated for an illness, or have other health concerns. In general, those with hypertension or high blood pressure should use caution when taking Chulen. Although no reports of this particular Chulen increasing blood pressure have come to us, people are different and they may effect you differently. This type of tonic formula can "quicken the blood", be sure to consult with your physician before and during use if you notice any changes in how you feel. Negative effects are extremely rare, but it is best to error on the safe side when dealing with personal health and well being.

Chulen function in Tibetan Medicine as a "blessed super vitamin" and can act to replenish the deepest energy in the body. They are made for and taken by some of the greatest Masters of Tibetan Buddhism alive today, such as Chatral Rinpoche, Namkhai Norbu Rinpoche, and many others. These authentic Chulen are unique not available elsewhere.
From a Chinese medical perspective, these pills replenish what is known as "ancestral" or "prenatal" jing. This energy is usually gone when depleted and cannot be refreshed once exhausted. Chulen targets this energy, rebuilding it from the ground up.
Chulen is Tibetan for “taking the essence” and is connected with the ancient Indian tradition of rejuvenation called Rasayana. These pills replenish the deepest energy in the body, help to extend the life, and increase the health of those who take them. Chulen are used in two ways: one as a replacement for food and the other as a type of super vitamin. The practice of replacing food with Chulen and eating only two or three pills each day is famous throughout Tibetan history and there are stories of such luminaries as Yeshe Tsogyal, Nyala Pema Dudul, and Adzom Drukpa living for many years simply on essence pills such as these. In this contemplative tradition of Chulen, the pills are used in conjunction with various physical yogas and meditations in order to recognize the nature of awareness and its relationship to the pure essence of the elements. In the process, the practitioner gradually gives up solid food and takes only pills. The accomplishment of the practice is the development of the ability to live on the pure essence of the elements alone.
A commentary on the practice of Chulen states:
"Chu is the essential substance of the elements: it maintains the physical body and, if our energy is uncoordinated, it co-ordinates it, if it is weak, it reinforces it. Therefore, chulen is useful, above all, to harmonize energy and develop clarity...The Body of Light (Jalu) can manifest when the principles of Dzogchen are combined with Chulen.”
What Our Clients Are Saying
(I decided to write and post this review of my personal experiences with the Ngakpo and the Nyala Pema Dudal Chulen while on a Holy Pilgrimage I undertook in mid July 2018 in hopes that it might be of benefit to other spiritual seekers who shop at the Siddhi Energetics site.)
In the middle of last month I left for a holy pilgrimage and since I would be going overseas and knew that I would have to pack light, I had hoped to purchase a few bottles of the traditional Chulen from Siddhi Energetics to take with me, as my pilgrimage would be requiring a very significant amount of walking and hiking.
Much to my dismay I went to place my order, they were all sold out and as I would be leaving soon I knew there wouldn't be time to wait for anymore to be back in stock before I left.
HOWEVER, due to Divine Providence and Joseph's amazingly intuitive generosity I was able to acquire a bottle of the Ngakpo Chulen from him before I had to leave. (At this point they were not officially listed on the Siddhi energetics site yet.)
Along with the Ngakpo, I also purchased a couple bottle of the Nyala Pema Dudal chulen in capsules to take with me.
Anyways, skipping ahead through a number of international checkpoints and such, I arrived at my pilgrimage destination with my Chulen still safely sealed and ready to accompany me on my journey.
I should also mention that I didn't know anything about the Ngakpo chulen and had never tried this formulation before, but I have always had such great results from the different Chulen on Siddhi Energetics and the products Joseph offers in general that I already had high hopes for it and knew that most likely it would become a welcome and vital addition to my pilgrimage.
That being said, I was not disappointed!!!
My pilgrimage required me to be continuously walking and hiking on foot EVERYWHERE and this included long hikes to different holy sites with many of them requiring rigorous climbing both uphill and downhill over a seemingly unending terrain of steep jagged rocks.
Of course, one of the great thing about Chulen is their spiritual nature and benefits as an aid to spiritual practice.
Once I had arrived at my hard won destination of the various the holy sites I was traveling to, I wanted to be able to spend lots of time in prayer and meditation and so forth.
This requires being able to quiet your mind and concentrate, even if your feet are blistered and sore or your muscles are aching etc….
The Ngakpo Chulen was VERY helpful in achieving this!
To give you an idea of what I mean, I should clarify that I only ate one meal a day at the end of my day which was usually around 1 am in the morning before bed and then I would get up around 6 am in the morning.
Usually I consumed some Chulen the very first thing upon rising along with a large bottle of water, and supplementing my regimen with some herbal/vitamin powders and another Chulen or two throughout the day.
I found that the Ngakpo Chulen worked very well for dealing with hunger while offering clarity of thought and continued energy.
Although, about the 3rd day I found that I got the best results from taking two of the Nyala Pema Dudal Chulen along with one of the Ngakpo Chulen, and then later on taking a booster in the evening of 1 Nyala Capsule and 1 Ngakpo Chulen together with lots of water.
I also found that they definitely are best taken on an empty stomach separate from any other herbal supplements or medicines as these seem to muddle the effects and need to be spaced at least an hour or more apart to allow your system to properly assimilate each of them effectively.
It's important to state that to allow myself to have ease of energy flow and spiritual clarity in my daily life I have trained myself to eat very sparsely on a regular basis, generally one meal a day with only a few superfoods when needed.. (spoonful of bee pollen etc…) So, eating one meal a day is not something that is unusual for me and so I don't recommend just deciding to only take Chulen in place of food, unless yu are already used to this practice.
Again though, this was an unusual situation because it was much more rigorous and far more physically, emotionally, and mentally taxing than my normal routine. (At times like these and others, when I have to work extra hard through strenuous exercise I will sometimes eat more often to keep up my strength as the body burns calories at a much higher rate that it normally would.)
In this situation there were times when I didn't get a proper meal (or any meal) for days on end and in those times the Ngakpo and Nyala were truly an asset to have available, I wholeheartedly feel that they really allowed me to approach and experience my pilgrimage with an intensity of focus and purpose that would have been much more difficult to maintain without their aid.
Now that I am home and I see the posting for the Ngakpo on the site, I have to chuckle because the description of their effects fits pretty much exactly what I experienced with them!
So, in gratitude to Joseph and The Higher Powers that so Generously blessed me with such a boon on my pilgrimage when I really needed the help, I wanted to write up a review of my experiences with the Ngakpo in the hope that it might benefit the others who shop at the Siddhi Energetics site.
Thank you again Joseph! You and Everyone at Siddhi Energetics provide an INVALUABLE service to those who seek to follow an elevated path of spiritual practice! The assistance you offer is truly deserving of every Blessing that can be sent your way!
With Warmth, Sincerity, and GRATITUDE!
