    Default Ancient Secrets of the Fountain of Youth (Peter Kelder) - the Five Tibetan Rites

    I found a funny little book. It's called the ancient secrets of the fountain of youth.

    It's about an old colonell which, in the time of his service in the army, heard the Tibetans talking about this fountain of youth. He went searching for it and discovered that the tibetan Monks practised a daily routine of rites. These rites are yoga-like excersices which, if practised everyday, are told to make you younger and a more energetic and centered being. It is so because the rites focus on the 7 chakra's and enhance their function and rotation of speed. This will make the body more energized and by that also more young. The excersises are explaind in detail, enabling the reader to practise them at home.

    You should take this book lightly, but the excercises are very fun, relaxing and activating. It's a meditation-like body routine, very, very fun to do. The effects ground you in your energy, making you grounded, focused, relaxed and joyful.

    At the end of the book there is described a sixth rite which the monks practiced. This rite was used to channel sexual energy in the chakra's making them very strong, energetic and alive. By this way they managed to litterly become younger, sometimes decades of years. What is true of this, i don't know.

    If you want, check it out, it's only 56 pages:

    Great find Joey!

    However, these are not called the "Five Tibetan Exercises." They are called the "Five Tibetan Rites."

    Huge difference between Rites and exercises.

    This is not the original book by the Colonel. I read the original many many years ago and in it the Colonel stated to his friend: "I do this fifteen minute Ritual, every morning to Start my day. Fifteen minutes!!! You ain't gonna do 21 reps of them all in fifteen minutes. They are Rites, and each is to be done ONE time. You are calling on the Great Spirit Masters whose Duty it is to Help YOU take care of your body. It is they... who make the changes in your body for you. When you finish your little fifteen minute Ritual, place your hands together in the middle of your chest and tell them "Thank You". Then go on about your day.

    Get up, go potty... do your Rites... get on about your day... simple.

    Oh yah and you only need to Spin FIVE times not 12 or 20. Five times as fast as you can. It will take some practice before you can do five really fast. Something else they don't mention either... Left Palm down, Right Palm up. when you spin. Do one, then the next, and the next, move from one right into the next untill you've done your FIVE. Stand up, say than you. yer done. get on with your life. And you will start noticing results in three weeks.

    Young healthy people may not notice much. BUT... old folks will.

    Old decrepid folks may die before they see any change using them as Exercises!!!!!!!!!

    THIS BOOK, that you've posted came out of a Thai Monastery in Nothern Thailand. They did NOT understand that which they were writting about.

    Hi Sirdipswitch,

    So, the original is a little different than this book, and the rites described in this newer version are different from the original.
    How do you know that these rites are to be done one at a time? And you say that by doing this rites you are calling on the Great Spirits Masters.
    Do I, except from showing gratitute at the end, make any reference to these spirits while I perform the rites?

    Do you, or have you benefited from these rites?

    What to think of the sixth rite?

    Will look to find the original book, is it also written by Peter Kelder? What is the name of this book?

    I know, a lot of questions, but i am sincerely interested in this.

    And another question,
    Barbara Marciniak's Pleiadians also recommended spinning, and said something to the effect of take it easy at first
    What's the deal with spinning?

    The Five Tibetan Rites: Exercises for Healing, Rejuvenation, and Longevity


    By Mary Kurus

    Background

    In 1985 a book called The Ancient Secret of the Fountain of Youth written by Peter Kelder was published which for the first time fully described an exercise program for "youthing". This is an exercise program used by Tibetan monks to live long, vibrant and healthy lives. In fact, this book states that many have lived longer than most can imagine by following the program often called the "Five Tibetan Rites". The benefits are described in this book and a subsequent book 2 with an expanded description of the program by the publisher called the Ancient Secret of the Fountain of Youth - Book 2, a companion to the original book by Peter Kelder. Many thanks to the publisher Doubleday for such a special an expanded explanation of the Five Rites.

    Potential Benefits of the Five Rites

    The authors provide many examples of the benefits of the "Five Tibetan Rites" including the following: looking much younger; sleeping soundly; waking up feeling refreshed and energetic; release from serious medical problems including difficulties with spines; relief from problems with joints; release from pain; better memory; arthritis relief; weight loss; improved vision; youthing instead of aging; greatly improved physical strength, endurance and vigor; improved emotional and mental health; enhanced sense of well being and harmony; and very high overall energy.

    How the Five Rites Work

    Medical professions explain the benefits based on their personal perspective and I suggest you read the entire two books for a broad overview. However, the majority share the view that the rites represent a system of exercise that affects the body, emotions and mind. The Tibetans claim that these exercises activate and stimulate the seven key chakras that in turn stimulate all the glands of the endocrine system. The endocrine system is responsible for the body's overall functioning and aging process. This means that the Five Rites will affect the functioning of all your organs and systems, including the physical and energetic systems and that includes the aging process. The man who brought these Five Rights out of Tibet stated that "performing the Five Rites stimulates the circulation of essential life energy throughout the body".

    Chakras

    Chakra is an Indian Sanskrit word that translates to mean "Wheel of Spinning Energy". Chakras are spinning wheels or vortexes of energy of different color that perform many functions connecting our energy fields, bodies and the Cosmic Energy Field. Chakras are powerful electrical and magnetic fields. Chakras govern the endocrine system that in turn regulates all of the body's functions including the ageing process. Energy flows from the Universal Energy Field through the chakras into the energy systems within our bodies, including the Meridian System.

    Our bodies contain seven major chakras or energy centers and 122 minor chakras. The major chakras are located at the base of the spine (Root Chakra), at the navel (Sacral Chakra), in the solar plexus (Solar Plexus Chakra), within your heart (Heart Chakra), within the throat (Throat Chakra), at the center of your forehead (Brow or Third Eye Chakra), and at the top of your head (Crown Chakra). These chakras are linked together with all other energy systems in the body and various layers of the auras.
    The Speed of the chakra spin is a key to vibrant health. The other keys to vibrant health that relates to the chakra is ensuring they are clear of negative energy and that they are perfectly shaped and not distorted.

    The Five Rites speed up the spinning of the chakras, coordinate their spin so they are in complete harmony, distribute pure prana energy to the endocrine system, and in turn to all organs and processes in the body. This is one of the major requirements for vibrant health, rejuvenation and youthfulness.

    The Five Rites Exercise Program

    This program is often described as a modified yoga program. Simply put, yoga is a science that unites the body, mind and spirit. Today this is often called Mind/ Body Healing. The author of the book believes that yoga was brought to Tibet from India in the 11th or 12th century and that Tibetan monks over time developed modified these exercises and developed an effective program of exercises that western society now calls the "Five Tibetan Rites". The rugged mountainous conditions these monks live in may well account for their particular emphasis on vigor. Many of the yoga exercises and practices being taught in the western world today are very new. The "Five Tibetan Rites" are exactly what the ancient Tibetans developed over many centuries of time. Therefore it's very important to do the "Five Tibetan Rites" exactly as they are presented without altering the form or sequence to achieve some of the benefits accrued to these "Rites".

    Beginning the "Five Rites" Exercise Program
    1. For the first week, and only if your are relatively healthy and fit, do each exercise three times.
    2. If you are inactive, overweight, or have health problems begin these exercises doing one of the first three each day, and only if you feel totally comfortable doing this. Later in this article I will describe exercises you can do to help yourself strengthen so you can begin to do the "Five Rites". If you have any concerns whatsoever, please consult with your physician. Individuals on serious medications should consult with their physicians.
    3. If you are overweight do not do Rites #4 and #5 until you have developed some strength and endurance. Do the substitutes for #4 and #5 until you yourself feel ready to begin doing #4 and #5 of the "Five Rites".
    4. Do only what you feel comfortable doing. That may be only one of each exercise for the first week. Build up to two of each exercise the second week, three of each exercise the third week, etc. or at a faster pace only if your body does not hurt when you do these exercises.
    5. 21 is the maximum of each exercise you should ever do. If you want to enhance your program, do the exercises at a faster pace, but do not so more than 21 of each exercise each day. Doing more than 21 repetitions of each exercise in any day will affect your chakras negatively and can create imbalances in your body.
    6. The "Five Rites" may stimulate detoxification and often creates many unpleasant physical symptoms. This is why it's recommended to increase the number of each exercise gradually on a weekly basis. I also recommend a vibrational detoxification with Choming Essences. For more information on vibrational detoxification with Choming Essences please visit my website www.mkprojects.com.
    7. If you have not exercised for some time, prepare to begin your "Five Rites" exercise program by walking daily, for a half hour each day if possible. Another alternative in preparation for the Five Rites is a stretching program with a gradual increase in the types of stretching exercises and the duration of this program.
    8. A sugar free and low fat diet is an important support when integrating the "Five Rites" exercise program into your life. Also check for Digestive Food Sensitivities and eliminate all foods you do not digest easily.
    9. Do the Five Rites exercises every day. The maximum you should skip is one day each week. If the exercises are done less than six days each week, the results will be greatly reduced.
    10. If on certain days your time is limited, do 3 repetitions of each exercise. This takes less than five minutes.
    11. For maximum benefit, do the exercises before breakfast in the morning, if at all possible. If this is not possible do them anytime during the day.
    Detoxification

    Detoxification is a process that helps to clean out of the physical and energetic body toxins or poisons that have accumulated in your physical cells, organs, systems and in your energetic systems (auras, chakras, meridian system and all electromagnetic, magnetic and electric systems). I strongly recommend that people beginning the "Five Rites" exercise program undertake a Choming Essence detoxification program either before or as they begin these exercises.

    If you have never detoxified you will probably have many poisons accumulated in your body and energetic systems. A full detoxification program with Choming Flower Essence, Gem Essences, and Tree Essences will eliminate all toxins. Detoxifying with Choming Essences uses vibrational essences, or what is sometimes called vibrational medicine to clear your systems of toxins and poisons. This includes the elimination of parasites, candida, viruses, and all poisons from pollution, pesticides etc.
    This vibrational approach to detoxification is completely complementary to the exercises of the "Five Rites". Detoxification is essential for vibrant and long life. For more information please refer to my article "Detoxification with Choming Essences" and other vibrational health articles on my website at www.mkprojects.com.

    "Five Tibetan Rites" Exercise Program

    The following instructions and photographs for the "Five Rites" and other preparatory exercises as taken from the book Ancient Secret of the Fountain of Youth, Book 2. I will show the exact Five Rights exercises, a group of exercises for those who need to develop flexibility and strength before beginning to do the "Five Rites", and a set of warm-up exercises. I strongly recommend you purchase the book since it provides detailed information about methodology, concerns and benefits not included in this article.

    SPECIAL CAUTION: Spinning and stretching through the following exercises can aggravate certain health conditions such as any type of heart problem, multiple sclerosis, Parkinsons'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

    Stand erect with arms outstretched horizontal to the floor, palms facing down. Your arms should be in line with your shoulders. Spin around clockwise until you become slightly dizzy. Gradually increase number of spins from 1 spin to 21 spins.

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. If possible, extend the legs over the body towards your head. Do not let the knees bend. Then slowly lower the legs and head to the floor, always Keeping the knees straight.

    Exercises In Preparation For Doing the Five Tibetan Rites


    The following group of exercises has been developed as a preparation for doing the Five Rites, or as an alternative when you are unable to do any of the Five Rites. Doing these exercises will help you strengthen and become more flexible to be able to do the Five Rites as they have been described above.

    Do these alternative exercises in the sequence from one to five and when possible, substitute the Five Rite exercise into this alternative program until you have fully integrated the Five Rites.

    As with the Five Rites, begin by doing two or three of each exercise daily, until you are able to do 10 each day. Once you are able to do ten of these alternatives, you should be ready to begin doing the Five Rite exercises themselves.

    Alternative (for Rite#1) Exercise #1

Swing your arms to the right, letting your slapping your left hand against your right shoulder, with your right hand slapping against the small of your back. Then swing your arms in the opposite direction, having your right hand slap against your left shoulder and the back of your left hand slap against the small of your back. As you swing back and forth allow your torso and legs to follow the movement. Allow your heels to lift from the floor but do not allow either foot to completely leave the floor. As you swing right turn your head right, and turn your head left as you swing to the left.

    Breathing: Breathe in rhythm to your swinging Movement.



    Alternative (for Rite #2) Exercise #2

    Warm-up Exercises


    The following group of exercises has been developed to open, relax, release tension, to strengthen various parts of the body, and to provide toning to different parts of your body.
    If you are overweight, in poor physical condition, or experiencing serious illness, this group of exercises is an excellent to help you begin your journey towards physical fitness. I suggest you do these warm-up exercises prior to the Five Rites if you are overweight or have not exercised in a long time.
    Begin this group of exercises by doing 2 of each exercise and then gradually increase the repetition until you are able to do 10 of each warm-up exercise.

    Warm-Up Exercise #1


    Stand upright, tilt your head sideways towards your left shoulder and hold it for five seconds, then tilt your head towards your chest and hold it 5 seconds. Then tilt your head towards your left Shoulder and hold it five seconds, and lastly tilt your head backward and hold it five seconds. Return your head to a normal position.

    Breathing:
    Exhale as you move your head around, and inhale as you return to the upright position.



    Warm-Up Exercise #2


    Stand upright, slowly rotate your shoulders in a forward circular motion 5 times, then reverse the movement and rotate your shoulders in a backward circular motion 5 times.

    Breathing:
    Breathe normally but deeply as you do this exercise.



    Warm-Up Exercise #3


    Stand upright with your arms help up, your elbows bent, and your hands together in front of your chest, with your fingertips touching and palms apart. Press inward on your fingers until their inside surfaces are almost touching. Your palms should not be touching. Release and press your fingers again.

    Breathing:
    Breathe normally.



    Warm-Up Exercise #4


    In a relaxed standing position, hold your arms in front of you. Clasp your right hand around your left wrist, with your thumb against the inside of the wrist. Squeeze gently but firmly five times. Repeat the procedure with the left hand Squeezing the right wrist.

    Breathing:
    Breathe normally.



    Warm-Up Exercise #5


    Recline on the floor, resting the upper part of your body on your upper arms. Flex your knees and rhythmically bang Them up and down against the floor in rapid succession. Your heels should remain on the floor throughout this exercise. Do this exercise for 20 - 30 seconds.

    Breathing:
    Breathe normally through this exercise.


    Warm-Up Exercise #6


    Get down on the floor on your hands and Knees with your hands positioned under your shoulders and your knees under your hips. Bring your chin up and rotate your hips so the tailbone moves up, arching your back down. Then tuck your chin into your chest and rotate your back so that your pelvis moves down, arching you're your back down.

    Breathing:
    Inhale as you move your tailbone up and exhale as you move your tailbone down.



    Conclusion:
    The daily practice of the exercises I have described in this article is an essential element of vibrant health. It's a proven fact that people who loose weight can only maintain their weight loss if they incorporate a daily exercise program into their everyday lives.

    These exercises will stretch muscles you haven't felt in years so approach this program gently and begin with one or two repetitions each day, increasing each exercise by one repetition every week. After you are able to do ten repetitions of the Alternate Exercise program, you should be able to begin to do the Five Rites.

    And add a half hour of a brisk walk on a daily basis. Not only will it contribute to your physical health, it will give you the opportunity to enjoy all of nature around you. You will feel younger than you have felt in years.

    Happy and Joyous Vibrant Health

    I found this book around the same time I came to Avalon and for the same reason to regain my health. I immediately type on google search bar. .... Fountain of youth exercise scam... As I was reading the mockery It occurred to me "the heck its just five simple exercise, why not try instead of read. I am so glad I did.... some tips do some variations from time to time combine with yoga or anything that makes you feel right.
    Best things are simple and free.

    Thank you so much for bringing this up. The book was well known in my country in the mid-nineties. Did the 'exercises' (yes, we called it exercises as propagated in the German version of the book) three or four times a week over a period of time, but I was young, in very good and healthy shape, inspired, excited anyway, so I didn't notice any benefits. Now, being 20 years older, I'm going to start the second round doing the 'rites'.
    During those 20 years it came maybe two times to my mind starting the 'exercises' again, but I didn't search for additional info until yesterday evening and I started this morning. Then, after having breakfast I opened the PA site and . . . voila . . . that's wonderful. Have fun, I'll be back.

    The key is the transmuting of the creative energy as hinted by the author. Detox is essential such that it allows the channels to be clear so the energy will not be funneled to other wasteful outlets. Parasites or blockages will force the body to succumb to urges we think the body NEEDS.

    Without such transmutation, the human body will continue to decay and fall apart, much less heal from any diseases.

    What's the difference between these Rites and "traditional" yoga? Except for the spinning? Love the " position". Funny thing many times as pple were dancing "freely" together or by themselves i used to spin and it always came natural to me without the head trick of dancers. Of course I get dizzy but that stops in a short time. Maybe i'm a reincarnated Sufi Love the poetry of Rumi by the way.

    Wow, iloveyou, what a nice synchronicity! That's really wondeful.

    @ Transiten: I think there is no difference, because this is actually yoga. The only difference there maybe is that is is a quite simple way to adress all the main muscles in the body. And all the rites are focussed on making the chakra's and spine free, resulting in an increased amount of energy which is available for the body, mind and soul.

    I am new to yoga, but doing these rites make me feel really wonderful. I feel focussed, balanced, relaxed and energetic.

    For me, the key is doing them slowly, with complete attention and rythmic breathing. I count the precize seconds of breathing in, holding, breathing out and holding. Then, ofcourse, i count every repetition. Another important key is to not overdo them, listen to your body.

    I don't know what to think of the 6th rite yet. Channeling the sexual enery up does make sense though. The energy won't flow out the 1th chakra, out of the body. Instead of that it rises up, up the spine, trough al the chakra's up to the 7th. By doing this it is said that it will energizing them. It is said in the book that this will contribute to making you 'superhuman'. A great mystery indeed.

    It reminds me of this picture:
    http://www.lumerah.com/wp-content/up...-KUNDALINI.jpg

    The snake, representing the kundalini energy, rising up from the bottom of the spine to the top of the head.

    Quote Posted by Joey (here)
    At the end of the book there is described a sixth rite which the monks practiced. This rite was used to channel sexual energy in the chakra's making them very strong, energetic and alive. By this way they managed to litterly become younger, sometimes decades of years. What is true of this, i don't know.

    If you want, check it out, it's only 56 pages:
    http://www.lib.ru/URIKOVA/KELDER/Anc...ter_Kelder.pdf
    The sixth rite is also known as the kundalini experience and the entire yoga only works out if you can control your sexual energy and lift it up to your crown chakra instead of having an orgasm. once you had one it's gone for at least one period of seven years.

    Live healthy, Live Vegan

    I thought about refining a bit the post, This sixth rite can be seen as a part in the Kundalini experience/practice. It's related to the energy flows connected with your chakras and the etheral 80k energy channels in your body. And this special rite is very well known actually in the monasteries all over, not only in this one, to avoid that the Monks get distracted.

    cccc. knew this wuz gonna happen!!! cc.

    Knew someone would step up and offer the "real deal"!! Thank you Bill, for this expanded version. I agree with your post 100%. Yep. Do. Precisely, exactly, 100% true and acurate as to how and why the body works and how this will work for us as an exercise program.

    However!!! Certainly! Most of you should know me well enough by now that I am going to have a, "However." cc. Why? you might ask? Because way back when I first read this expanded version, it raised an immediate red flag for me!

    BIG RED FLAG!!!!

    As to why that happened, we must firstly understand how the game is played, or we will fail to notice those Red Flags.

    Who was quick to offer the expanded explanation??? Doubleday. DOUBLEDAY???!!! A "High Powered" main stream pubisher??

    Now there's expert witness if I ever heard it. ccc. Oh but wait!!! They were expertly corroborated by... who?????

    MEDICAL PROFESSIONALS!!!

    That is why they were able to get it so precisely, 100%, "Medically" correct. As an "Exercise" program. cc.

    Why do I seem to notice red flags when others don't? Because I have never been one to follow a trail, no matter how small, if there seemed to even be the slightest trace of a trail, (and we know that every trail will have sign posts along the way but, TPTB will remove them and replace them with their own. so...) I always stepped off and made my own.

    Did I do the Five Rites? Yep. Fely pretty good too. Nut stopped. I didn't really want to embrace Tibetan Budism, fully, so I didn't.

    I took a bit "Difrnt' road. cc. Took off out through the weeds untill finally I came to an absolutely beautiful garden, in which I have been lounging ever since.

    And I don't touch that apple tree!!! cccc.

    @ sirdipswitch, you seem to deliberately come across as mysterious and knowing. But talking like this is not going to deepen our knowledge here, it actually derails a good flow of communication.

    I get the impression from you that by doing the rites in this manner, the essence is lost. So what is this lost essence?
    In what way can we regain this essence and why is it not incorporated in the way described as above?

    Please, if you know more from experience, share it with us. But, if i may be that rude, don't come here being mysterious and knowing, while not adding any depth to the conversation.

    I am writing in sincerity.

    Great post Joey!

    Since (most of us) have neglected to maintain our physical body in optimum working order, Bill's enhancement of this post by Mary Kurus is also very important to consider before trying these Rites.

    I've been practicing these for 8 years now and yes, they do maintain the physical body (flexibility, stamina, power) and the Chakra system in good shape!

    Other advantages are:

    1) They take only a small amount of time to do in your day;
    2) They complement meditation wonderfully by identifying body problems that you can then visualise/heal!
    3) You can do them pretty much anywhere (even in hotel rooms) but I recommend you keep your yoga mat handy for Rites 2 to 5;
    4) These Rites can be practiced by all age groups but they are most effective and useful for the 50 years old and up group.

    I wish everyone a most positive day,

    8 years! That's a long time Stardad
    Did you notice any difference regarding the chakra's? May be hard to notice, but i ask it anyway because the author is claiming it will benefit them mainly.

    So you focus mainly on the 5 rites? Did you do the 6th rite?
    Do you know anyone who did the 6th rite for a longer period of time?
    I am curious about this Rite because it's a thing nobody seem to talk about and sweep it under the carpet.

    Hello. Recently I've started to do these five tibetan rites (only 10 days now). In such a short time I've noticed I am not so hungry (I am thin, but I love to snack) and I am developing a taste for raw foods. Also, my sleep pattern has improved and I need less hours but I get up feeling better in the morning. I wonder if this could be the result of the five rites. If so, it shocks me they are so effective.

    Any recent experiences?

    Thanks
