Format: Paperback
Kum Nye is a combination of meditation/contemplation, self-massage and exercises vaguely related to gentle hatha yoga poses and movements. Unfortunately, it is sometimes called "relaxation", and sometimes "yoga", depending on the books. This commentary's main purpose is thus to provide extra information on different Kum Nye books by Tarthang Tulku as well as on different editions of the book on this Amazon page, Kum Nye: Tibetan Yoga.
I won't comment on the book's contents, even if I've found with this book a beautiful way of reconsidering and refining my practice of hatha yoga. [There are good comments from Amazon.com below (on 12 may 2013)]

This edition of "Kum Nye: Tibetan Yoga" (2007--- with the white cover) seems to be a reprint of "Kum Nye - Tibetan Yoga--A complete guide to health & wellbeing. 115 exercises & massages" (yellow and blue cover + a sun), that is shown on the Dharma Publishing's website (though sold out in May 2013).

The 115 exercises are numbered (probably for teaching purposes) in the new edition. I am not sure if it was the case in the first edition entitled "Kum Nye relaxation" (Part 1 & Part 2, published in 1978)Kum Nye Relaxation: Pt. 1 (Nyingma Psychology Series) and Kum Nye Relaxation: Pt. 2. Otherwise, there is no indication in the 2007 edition's introduction that any changes have been made for that new edition.

Each self-massage or movement exercise is illustrated with one single drawing, probably kept from the first edition.

Brilliant book. Can't recommend it highly enough. The exercises described are well within the reach of most people. All you really need is the will to practice.

HASH(0x99190468) out of 5 stars STARTING FROM THE BASICS 14 Dec. 2011
By Bill Butler - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Meditation may be hard for some. There is something which may be more accessible. Instead of bringing your mind constantly back to the breath at the nostrils, which is the most traditional approach in Theravada and many Tibetan practices, you might want to consider another possibility. According to the Buddha, he states that there are four structures (what a bad synonym, did I really study Buddhist Psychology?) which makes up YOU. YOU who are reading this. There's a body. I believe you have one of those. There are sensations and feelings. There's a mind there. Whether Democratic or Republican. And some mind objects floating through you. Traditionally, you sit on your ass and become aware of the breathing. This can be problematic. Many thoughts and emotions will go through you. But there is a much vaster field of experience which for you may be more accessible. And that is the sensations and the feelings. These, in Buddhist Psychology, can be divided into painful, pleasant, and neutral. But they are always there. Thoughts float through you all the time. But this can be very problematic. By generating and tuning into sensations and feelings, the awareness that accompanies this practice can heal. You won't be all gathered up into the past or the future. You're right here. With this practice, I don't want you to be thrown. As the author states, you can really waste time with INSTRUCTIONS. The accent is on feelings and sensations. Different energies are awakened. I have been informed that this is TIBETAN MEDICAL. I am only a rank beginner in these quarters. You can order the e-Kum Nye course through Dharma Publishing. Later, you can go to Advanced Kum Nye with the author's "Joy of Being". This may all seem like making meditation extremely complicated. But think about it. How can you ever get away from physical sensation. You CAN suppress your thoughts and emotions for awhile. In sleep, your sensations will go away. But while you are awake; your sensations are always present. And with this approach, you can belong to any religion. Or none at all. Thank you. And I apologize for any errors. I am relatively new to the practice end of this lineage.

HASH(0x99192ce4) out of 5 stars The Ultimate Relaxation Yoga! 17 Jun. 2010
By Nolan Guiffre - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I have tried many types of yoga, but Kum Nye is the best for total relaxation! This is a very thorough book with tons of exercise. Anyone interested in Kum Nye should definitely start with this . No matter what the occasion, this book has a posture perfect for regaining inner balance and harmony. My mind is at its clearest right after a wonderful Kum Nye session. After this, I recommend to friends The Joy of Being: Advanced Kum Nye Practices for Relaxation, Integration and Concentration (Tibetan Yoga). I also love the DVD series: Kum Nye - Healing the Four Energy Centers, Kum Nye - Stimulating and Transforming Energies, Kum Nye - Developing Wholeness of Energy, and Kum Nye - The Art of Developing Balance. The possibilities are endless!

HASH(0x99192b04) out of 5 stars Subtle yet powerful 12 Nov. 2015
By Julian Suggate - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Have only just started the sitting practices but after thirteen years of yoga and six years vipassana I can tell you this stuff is subtle but hugely significant. One week in and my body is open in ways I never imagined until now. I can't wait to see what comes of the future work!
