Since childhood I have had several back problems, even ended up it the hospital with it. I got my hands on this book in Russia half a year ago and read it in one day. The book is very easy to read and understand. But most importantly, when i tried out the rites, after a month the pain disappeared and i felt great like never befor. This book can improve your life!

Its interesting to me that I've had 'updates' in the past couple of months when making a new friend on Goodreads.

A new friend + an old memory = a nice way to begin a day!

I read this book while on a retreat years ago.

The idea of this 'slim' book is to feel YOUNG! (just what the book says). ha! :)

If you are terrified of yoga, this book demystifies the ancient science of yoga by making it accessible to everyone.

There are Five Rites recommended (exercises) --to do each day!

When I began doing the Five Rites, as explained in this book, I documented my progress, first on a diary site and then later on my blog. Inexplicably I stopped doing them after a few months and have never felt as well since. One day, when the time is right, I will make them a part of my life again.

The story that explains how the book came about is charming, whether it's true or not, it doesn't matter. The Five Rites are yoga type exercises that build your strength and well being.

Uh, I am not really sure what to think of this. Although I know people who practice the "five Tibetan rite" everyday ans swear by them, this story of how they were shared with the western world sounds a bit like a fairy tale. I fully believe they could be beneficial, but I'm not sure they can take eliminate the effects of natural aging. the chapter on mantrams seems like a re-write of some of the more recent methods of using affirmations. Or perhaps this is where the idea came from. At any rate, ...more

I'm not sure about the techniques they do in the book. I'm sure they would work, but they seem time consuming. I got so dizzy trying one of them that I was sick for the rest of the day. Oh well, I guess I will live with my wrinkles and gray hair. ...more

An entertaining read, reminiscent of "Lost Horizon" by James Hilton.
Interesting exercises - which can't fail to be helpful for one's health.
Overall, however, to be taken with a large pinch of salt - at least as far as health claims and historic accuracy are concerned.

There are so many things in this life that we as Westerners don't necessarily understand and make us skeptics. But there is evidence that shows that many of the Tibetan monks knowledge is there to improve life. I hope that as I follow the 5 Rites shown in this book, i become a healthier and more peaceful person and if that helps me to look younger, I'll take it! ...more

It's a good book for some who are not well versed athletes.The exercisers called RITES( the 6 mentioned in this part)are known in various forms to those of us who do exercise regularly and know about such techniques which are important to focus inward.

I like it.

I bought a story bundle and this was part of a course run by Stephen Barnes called ‘The Ancient Child’.
It is a positive thought and behaviour thingy based on doing the exercises described in this old book. Five Rites done a maximum number of times, and a sixth - which seems to be a conversion of sexual energy into brain power. [abstinence?]
The story is written as if the MC learnt the secret of life from an old General who heads off to Tibet and returns looking much younger and fitter. Half his a

Benefits of yoga and the power of positive thinking in a nutshell

While the content is presented as a discovered secret to the fountain of youth, the benefits of yoga and positive thinking are well documented. I believe that people who try these things will indeed achieve the benefit of being more youthful and happy! The exercises (rites) are not the crazy hard ones, but some people will have to do the best they can and they will improve daily until they can do them, and they will benefit rather

Easy to follow directions for the 5 rites. Some of the dietary suggestions at the end seem nonsensical and that did dampen my enthusiasm for the book. For example, it said plant oils are good and animal oils are bad (except butter). I might be wrong about animal oils being good, but I think that making a blanket statement that plant oils are good is dangerous. I don't think this is offense in judgment should affect the judgment of the 5 rites much, but it certainly doesn't help. There is also a ...more
I had never heard of the Tibetan Five Rites until a friend mentioned it to me. This small book explains everything quite nicely. Its based on the Chakras and the exercises themselves take about 15-20 mins to perform.[return][return]Because of my yoga background the exercises are quite manageable. I've been doing them for the past few days and look forward to seeing what changes occur for me. The exercises flow nicely one into the other and are fun to do.[return][return]I'm glad I discovered this ...more

Very easy read. I finished it in two days, but could easily be finished in one. I have to say I was impressed with the content. I had no idea what to expect, since so many books have been written on the secrets of rejuvenation, I thought it could easily be one of those, common and forgettable, but the truth is it left me a bit surprised. Overall I wouldn’t know what rating to give the author on this piece of writing until I try and prove his excercises. Very traditional, but interesting. Worth t ...more

This is a reprint of an older book about six exercises claimed to be from Tibetan traditions for improved health and anti-aging benefits. It's a great little read and I've been enjoying laughing at myself as I try to do the exercises. :-) Can't say if they work as I've only been doing them a few days, but it's fun either way. ...more

This is a fascinating study of The Five Tibetan Rites that allegedly can benefit health and add to one's longevity. Although the rites seem fairly simplistic and easy to follow, one should take proper precaution in following them. Only through practice and experience with these five Rites could determine their effectiveness. I would, however, recommend this book. ...more

Short and sweet

Good summary (if short) of the Tibetan rites. Does leave a lot up in the air as mystical - would love to see a good scientific review as opposed to the "just do this, it works" theme.

Very helpful little book.

I really enjoy reading this book and look forward to putting it to good use. It is easy to read and the information is very useful. Highly recommend for older people trying to regain their energy.

A short book that offers a series of simple exercises that claim to yield powerful rejuvenating and anti-aging properties.

The books is simply written and the exercises easy to follow. Whether they work or not is another matter.

I was on board with this book until Part 4. That contained a chapter directed towards men, that I skipped. Part 5 was outside reality- I'm not of the opinion that anyone can or is in the position to "demand " anything from the universe/God/earth. ...more

A wonderful book

I read this book a long time ago in paperback form and practiced the Five Rites for the last five years. I found it immensely effective. I wish all people in the world will read and practice daily .

Full of energy

Only requirement is practice. Practicing seven rites will transform your life.Just practice and practice.There is no substitute to practice. Do not forget importance of celibacy.

Interesting ideas

I’ll update this review when I’ve done 1-5 for a while.
At the very least it will tone my body and help set a habit of moving outside of usual getting up activities in my mornings.

Simple, precise & to the point! Not many books like this out there. There is also a part 2 of this but that really is not much. You wont need it. You just need this book in it's full practical employment. That's when the book feels wonderful. Not before! ...more

To prevent the ageing and make you look younger, all you have to do is just do 5 tibetan rites within a day. Don't need to do other yoga exercises.

Simple and effective, 5 stars!
