Spontaneous bliss

Kunlun is a very powerful, yet very simple practice that allows you to experience spontaneous, ecstatic bliss and reenlightenment.

Spontaneous bliss — this is the experience of practicing Kunlun Nei-gung. It might sound too good to be true, and yet bliss is what people can quickly and easily actualize.

Whether someone is sitting peacefully in meditation or having a beer after work, everyone is chasing their bliss. So what is Kunlun, and what is it not? It is not a fad, you don’t have to shave your head, and there is no need for years of meditation or study.

Kunlun is a very powerful, yet very simple practice that allows you to experience spontaneous, ecstatic bliss and reenlightenment. Kunlun is the express way to let go of baggage, the sorrow, disappointment, heartbreak and loss which we have chosen to accumulate in life.

Kunlun meditation involves visualization, qi gong breathing and hand mudras that help us reconnect the fragmented parts of ourselves with the whole essence of all there is and all there will ever be. It is one of the most direct ways to experience your innate purity by allowing the microcosm (the inner universe) to merge with the macrocosm (the outer universe). The union of these two worlds brings about the bliss body, and through this, a blissful state can be experienced spontaneously with little effort. In fact, the less you try, the easier it is to activate a Kunlun experience.

According to the Ven. Dr. Kim Le — a Buddhist nun, Traditional Chinese Medicine healer, and feng shui and astrological consultant — the first level of Kunlun serves to purify the body and tone the 72,000 nerves (called nadis). The psychic heat generated by this allows the heart to open. The opening of the heart and its channels reawakens the bodhisattva-like compassion for all living beings, as well as the DNA, which is the imprint of who and what we are, and what we can potentially manifest.

For centuries, Kunlun had never been taught outside the monasteries, or even been written about. Each monastery has its own variation and technique. However, all share the common goal of realigning the body’s secret and sacred energy channels so that enlightenment can be reexperienced through spontaneous bliss.

This ancient, profound practice was introduced to the West by Lama Dorje (also known as Max Christensen). Max was the only survivor of a set of triplets. His father was exposed to very high levels of Agent Orange while in the military; the result was that his offspring had many physical abnormalities and birth defects. Fortunately, a Chinese groundskeeper befriended the family and took care of young Max.

As fate would have it, Max’s new caregiver just happened to be Wudang Master Wu Xiao Deng, of Hubei Province. Max began to study under Master Wu in 1966, at the age of six. Max’s studies included qi gong, nei-kung and various forms of martial arts, as well as ancient healing techniques.

Kunlun is so fantastic it almost defies description. During the three Kunlun workshops in which I have participated, I simply had to experience and witness Kunlun for myself.

I first met Dr. Kim Le and Lama Dorje (aka Max) at his Kunlun workshop in Scottsdale, Ariz. It was there that I was fortunate to witness Le experience what she has described to me as a profound “opening and transformation.” The class had just begun to take a break, and I was standing about 10 feet away from her when I noticed that she was wiggling and flopping in and out of her chair.

The workshop staff and Max calmly and quickly went to her side during her blissful experience. As the staff gently supported her, Max, through his wisdom eye, recognized that she was a rare and powerful healer and teacher. Because of Max’s karmic insight, he chose to bestow the entire lineage of the Kunlun Nei-gung practice to Dr. Le. The powerful vibrational waves of this transmission were undeniable. For several minutes, the energy spiraled across the room and jolted the others and me at cyclic intervals.

Dr. Le has been asked by Max and her teacher Adzom Rinpoche to reinfuse this teaching to the nuns of the monasteries throughout the world. And with Max’s encouragement, Dr. Kim Le is now teaching Kunlun here in the Valley.
