The Five Tibetans also called Tibetan Rites are exercises for healing, rejuvenation, and longevity.
In his book, Peter Kelder writes that while stationed in India, British army officer Colonel Bradford (a pseudonym) heard a story about a group of lamas (monks) who had apparently discovered the "Fountain of Youth".
The "wandering natives", as he called them, told him of old men who inexplicably became healthy, strong, and full of "vigor and virility" after entering a particular lamasery.
After retiring, Kelder's Colonel Bradford went on to discover the lamasery and lived with the monks, where they taught him five exercises - Five Tibetans, which they called "rites".
The lamas describe seven spinning, "vortexes" within the body: The Chakras.
As we grow older, the spin rate of the vortexes diminishes, resulting in decline of health (law of vibration and body frequencies). However, the spin rate of these vortexes can be restored by performing the Five Tibetans daily.
Bradford was also instructed in how to perform a sixth rite, which the lamas recommended only for those willing to "lead a more or less celibate life".
Lie flat on the floor, face up. Fully extend your arms along your sides and place the palms of your hands against the floor. Then raise your head off the floor tucking your chin into your chest.
As you do this, lift your legs, knees straight, into a vertical position. Do not let the knees bend.
Then slowly lower the legs and head to the floor, always keeping the knees straight. Allow the muscles to relax, and repeat.
Kneel on the floor with the body erect.
The hands should be placed on the backs of your thigh muscles. Incline the head and neck forward, tucking your chin in against your chest.
Then throw the head and neck backward, arching the spine. Your toes should be curled under through this exercise. As you arch, you will brace your arms and hands against the thighs for support.
Sit down on the floor with your legs straight out in front of you.
With the trunk of the body erect, place the palms of your hands on the floor alongside your buttocks.
Then tuck the chin forward against the chest.
Now drop the head backward as far as it will go. At the same time raise your body so that the knees bend while the arms remain straight. Then tense every muscle in your body. Finally let the muscles relax as you return to your original sitting position.
Start with your arms perpendicular to the floor, and the spine arched, so that the body Is in a sagging position.
Now throw the head back as far as possible.
Then, bending at the hips, bring the body up into an inverted "V" position. At the same time, bring the chin forward, tucking it against the chest.
Stand straight up and slowly let all of the air out of your lungs. As you do this, bend over and put your hands on your knees. Force out the last trace of air, and then, with the lungs empty, return to a straight up posture.
Place your hands on your hips, and press down on them.
This will push your shoulders up. As you do this, pull in the abdomen as much as possible, and at the same time raise the chest.
Now, hold this position as long as you possibly can.
When you are finally forced to take air into your empty lungs, let the air flow in through the nose. When the lungs are full, exhale through the mouth. As you exhale, relax your arms, letting them hang naturally at your sides.
Then take several deep breaths through the mouth or nose, allowing them to escape through either the mouth or nose.
About three repetitions are required for most people to redirect sexual energy, and turn its powerful force upward.
