Chulen function in Tibetan Medicine as a "blessed super vitamin" and act to replenish the deepest energy in the body. Chulen like these 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 are made according to an ancient and authentic recipe, and are not available elsewhere. This particular Chulen recipe was created by the famous master Nyala Pema Dudul, who, in 1872 in Kham, Eastern Tibet, actually attained the Ja-lu, or rainbow body, his physical body dissolving into light at the time of his death. 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 lifespan by increasing 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 many masters lived for years on essence pills such as these. In this contemplative tradition of Chulen, the pills are used in conjunction with physical yogas and meditations in order to recognize the radiant nature of awareness and its relationship to the pure essence of the elements. 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 coordinates it, and it reinforces energy. Therefore, Chulen is useful, above all, to harmonize energy and develop clarity…The Body of Light can manifest when Dzogchen is combined with Chulen."
