Five Rituals for the Secret of Eternal Youth

Updated on March 20, 2012

Uncover the Lost Tibetan Secret of Eternal Youth

There's an old Indian adage that goes...

"When the student is ready, the teacher appears."

Nothing happens by chance.

If you lack energy and stamina, have failing eyesight, poor memory, cloudy thinking, and just generally feel blah, you may find relief in an ancient Tibetan secret hidden deep inside the Himalayas - a secret almost too good to be true.

It's a secret that can enable you to look a shocking 30 years younger - in just 10 weeks from now, working just 10 minutes a day, so they say.

It's a secret that can remove your wrinkles. It can restore your natural hair color. It can improve your memory. It can correct your eyesight. It can turbo-charge your energy levels, your strength, your virility.

Wow! I want some of this!

This secret can turn you into a 25 year old again, WITHOUT QUESTION.

That's half my age...and while I wouldn't want to be 25 years old again if you paid me, I would not mind having the body I had at 25, that's for sure.

So, I decided to do a little research about the so-called "Lost Tibetan Secret of Eternal Youth". Read on to see what I have learned.

What are the Five Tibetan Rites?

The Fountain of Youth by Lucas Cranach the Elder

The Five Tibetan Rites is a system of exercises reported to be more than 2,500 years old which were first publicized by Peter Kelder in a 1939 publication entitled The Eye of Revelation. Although practically nothing is known about Kelder, one source reports that Kelder was raised as an adopted child in the Midwestern United States, and left home while still in his teens in search of adventure. In the 1930s, Kelder claims to have met, in southern California, a retired British army colonel who shared with him stories of travel and the subsequent discovery of the Rites. Originally written as a 32-page booklet, the publication is the result of Kelder's conversations with the colonel. The Rites are said to be a form of Tibetan yoga similar to the more well-known yoga series that originated in India. However, the Five Rites and traditional Tibetan yoga both emphasize "a continuous sequence of movement" (Sanskrit: vinyasa), whereas Indian forms focus on "static positions". Although the Rites have circulated amongst yogis for decades, skeptics say that Tibetans have never recognized them as being authentic Tibetan practices.

The Five Tibetan Rites are also referred to as "The Five Rites", "The Five Tibetans", "The Five Rites of Rejuvenation" and most recently "T5T".

SPECIAL CAUTION:

Spinning and stretching through the following exercises can aggravate certain health conditions such as any type of heart problem, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's Disease, severe arthritis of the spine, uncontrolled high blood pressure, a hyperthyroid condition, or vertigo. Problems may also be caused if you are taking drugs that cause dizziness. Please consult your physician prior to beginning these exercises if you have any difficult health issues or if you have any other concerns.

The Five Tibetan Rites

How to Practice the Five Tibetan Rites

According to the Personal Development Institute, the five exercises are easy to do and produce an alert feeling in both body and mind. You are advised to start gently, doing only what is easy and comfortable for you, and to build up the number of repetitions of each exercise gradually. The process should normally take 2- 3 weeks in order to accustom the body to these movements.

Performing the five rites with 21 repetitions each will take you from 10 to 20 minutes.

A good time to practice the rites is in the morning, after of before taking a shower. You will find that practicing the five Tibetans in the morning will make you feel more energetic and fresh during the rest of the day. You will also experience greater mental alertness during your daily activities. Performing the five Tibetans before the evening will leave you feel better for the rest of the day, and improve the quality of your sleep.

It is best to do all five exercises one after the other in the order given below. And to practice them every day.

Before you Begin

An important part of the Tibetan exercises is a conscious synchronization of breathing while performing physical activity. Before beginning the exercises, practice the basic 4 - stage breathing technique.

* Inhale.

* Hold filled lungs.

* Exhale.

* Hold empty lungs.

First Rite
First Rite

The First Rite

Twirling

Stand erect with arms outstretched, horizontal with the shoulders. Now spin around until you become slightly dizzy. There is only one caution: you must turn from left to right.

Start by doing not more than 2 or 3 twirls and build up gradually over a period of 2 or 3 weeks to 21 twirls a day.

The Second Rite

Head and Leg Raises

Lie full length on rug or bed. Place the hands flat down alongside of the hips. Fingers should be kept close together with the finger-tips of each hand turned slightly toward one another. Raise the feet until the legs are straight up. If possible, let the feet extend back a bit over the body toward the head, but do not let the knees bend. Hold this position for a moment or two and then slowly lower the feet to the floor, and for the next several moments allow all of the muscles in the entire body to relax completely. Then perform the Rite all over again.

While the feet and legs are being raised it is a good idea also to raise the head, then while the feet and legs are being lowered to the floor lower the head at the same time.

Allow all the muscles to relax, continue breathing in the same rhythm. Breathe in deeply as you lift your legs and breathe out as you lower your legs. Then repeat the sequence 2 or 3 times and build up gradually, over a period of 2 or 3 weeks, to a total of 21 repetitions.

The Third Rite

Back Arches

Kneel on a rug or mat with hands at sides, palms flat against the side of legs. Then lean forward as far as possible, bending at the waist, with head well forward-chin on chest. The second position of this Rite is to lean backward as far as possible. Cause the head to move still further backward. The toes will prevent you from falling over backward. The hands are always kept against the side of the legs. Next come to an erect (kneeling) position, relax as much as possible for a moment, and perform Rite all over again.

Breathe in deeply as you arch the spine, breathe out as you return to an erect position. Repeat this 2 or 3 times and build up gradually over a period of 2 or 3 weeks to a total of 21 repetitions.

The Fourth Rite

The Table

Sit erect on rug or carpet with feet stretched out in front. The legs must be perfectly straight -- back of knees must be well down or close to the rug. Place the hands flat on the rug, fingers together, and the hands pointing outward slightly. Chin should be on chest -- head forward.

Now gently raise the body, at the same time bend the knees so that the legs from the knees down are practically straight up and down. The arms, too, will also be vertical while the body from shoulders to knees will be horizontal. As the body is raised upward allow the head gently to fall backward so that the head hangs backward as far as possible when the body is fully horizontal. Hold this position for a few moments, return to first position, and RELAX for a few moments before performing the Rite again.

When the body is pressed up to complete horizontal position, tense every muscle in the body.

Breathe in as you raise up, hold your breath as you tense the muscles, breathe out completely as you come down. Continue breathing in the same rhythm as long as you rest between repetitions. Repeat this 2 or 3 times and build up gradually over a period of 2 or 3 weeks to a total of 21 repetitions.

The Fifth Rite

A Modified Cobra

Place the hands on the floor about two feet apart. Then, with the legs stretched out to the rear with the feet also about two feet apart, push the body, and especially the hips, up as far as possible, rising on the toes and hands. At the same time the head should be brought so far down that the chin comes up against the chest. Next, allow the body to come slowly down to a 'sagging' position. Bring the head up, causing it to be drawn as far back as possible.

The muscles should be tensed for a moment when the body is at the highest point, and again at the lowest point.

Breathe in deeply as you raise the body, breathe out fully as you lower it. Repeat this 2 or 3 times and build up gradually over a period of 2 or 3 weeks to a total of 21 repetitions.

Tibetan Rejuvenation Rite: The Sixth Rite

The series of Five Tibetan exercises described above is capable of being practiced two or three times a day everyday during the entire lifetime. In contrast, the following exercise, according to the Tibetan Lamas, has a very special purpose and it ought to be practiced only in circumstances described below. If you are not sure, and do not practice the first five exercises regularly, do not practice this exercise. You have been warned.

The deemed purpose of the Tibetan #6 exercise is to redirect the excess of sexual and reproductive energy, generated by the activity of the what is perceived of as being the base chakra (also referred to as vortexes) to all higher chakras along the spine, especially to the brow chakra, which activity is related to our spiritual awareness and psychic abilities. According to Lamas this exercise ought to be practiced only when the excess of the sexual urge is experienced, otherwise this exercise does more harm than benefit, by draining the energy from the base chakra.

By systematically practicing the first five Tibetan exercises it is quite possible to raise the energy of the base chakra so much, that the sexual urge appears and requires to be dealt with. This is capable of happening at any age.

One way to handle the situation is to dissipate this powerful energy in sexual activities. The Tibetan alternative is to transmute it to higher use, to accelerate your spiritual development and rejuvenate the physical body. Instead of dissipating the reproductive energy you may choose to use it to regenerate cells in your entire physical body. The choice is yours; you have the free choices, as always.

Sometimes one may find in their lives that sexual activity without sincere love and a spiritually matched partner is similar to going to a forest and not seeing trees.

Sexual love in its clearest form brings about a spiritual union, bringing experiences and sensations far more profound, pleasurable, longer lasting and beneficial than just a physical act of relief.

In the absence of a partner that you are capable of achieving this with, Tibetan Lamas offer you the alternative, verified over many thousands of years to be not only effective, though also very beneficial to your total health, longevity, bio-energy level, Aura and most importantly to your spiritual development. They do not attempt to suppress the powerful energy of the base chakra. Such suppression is destined to fail, much as any act against the Nature. They offer an efficient way to transmute it for the higher purpose.

The sequence of Tibetan #6 is as follows:

1. Stand straight and breathe out completely

2. Bend over forward putting your hands on your knees, forcing out the last trace of air

3. With your lungs empty, return to standing straight posture.

4. Put your hands on your waist and push your shoulders up by pressing down with your hands. Pull the abdomen in as much as possible and raise your chest, keeping your lungs empty.

5. Hold this position as long as you are capable, with empty lungs.

6. Breathe in through the nose until your lungs are full.

7. Exhale through the mouth, relaxing arms to hang free.

8.Take several deep breaths before the next repetition.

Benefits of Performing the Rites

What are the Benefits?

The claims made regarding the benefits of performing the five rites are pretty dramatic. In fact, claims as to the benefits of the Rites are often exaggerated, resulting in unrealistic expectations. It is said you'll not only look and feel great, but you'll also begin to experience some fantastic health benefits, too. And it doesn't matter how old you are. You could be 20, 30, 50, or 100. It's irrelevant. However old you are, you WILL be able to do these exercises - and you WILL experience profound benefits.

According to Kelder, Bradford's stay in the lamasery transformed him from a stooped, old gentleman with a cane to a tall and straight young man in the prime of his life. Additionally, he reported that Bradford's hair had grown back, without a trace of gray. The revised publications of The Eye of Revelation entitled Ancient Secret of the Fountain of Youth also contain numerous testimonials by practitioners of the Rites, claiming that they yield positive medical effects such as:

  • Your eyesight will improve dramatically.
  • Your strength, flexibility, and virility will radically increase.
  • Your memory will get noticeably better and your thoughts will become clearer.
  • You'll feel happier, more alive, more EXCITED about life!
  • Gray hair will be restored to full color.
  • Reduced stress and an enhanced sense of calm
  • An overall improvement in health and well-being.

How long do the Five Rituals take to see results?

Just the same as they did with Colonel Bradford. It takes just TEN MINUTES a DAY – and you’ll begin seeing results within just one week.

It’s best to compare after ten weeks however, where you’ll see the most dramatic change. You’ll literally feel 25 again. And if you’re already 25, you’ll enjoy all the other benefits too – such as improved memory, enhanced eyesight, greater energy!

And it’s cumulative too, like compound interest.

As soon as you’ve done these enjoyable exercises for ten weeks, the effects get quicker and quicker and quicker, and more and more noticeable.

The Eye of Revelation by Peter Kelder

The Five Rituals are simple. They're a series of five simple movements that can be practiced in just 10 minutes a day. They involve simple, yet precise movements that virtually anyone can perform - whether you're 30, 50, or 100.
