The exercises of “Working with the Elements” are part of the Tara Rokpa process “Back to beginnings”, which was created by Akong Rinpoche.
Ringu Tulku expresses his appreciation of this approach as beneficial for people in the West.
He gives explanations how the five elements earth, water, fire, air and space have to come together in a balanced way for any animate being to be possible.
The balance is needed for health, lung-ta.
The colours of the five elements are used for balancing.
The elements are also used in Tibetan Astrology.
