How to Create a Tulpa - ThoughtForms and Manifestations


A 'Tulpa' is a 'ThoughtForm', a psychospiritual melding of mind and energy used to create consciousness simply through willing it into existence. Tulpas are artificially created non-physical entities brought into being through the powers of meditation and visualization, in essence and theory Tulpas are powerful slaves created from the minds of their Masters, conjured forth and given being from chaos, to perform specific tasks.
The Tulpa - Buddhist ThoughtForms

The Tulpa being of no mass may travel vast distances freely and with great speed, performing the duties of those who create them. And Tulpas may be used to act out virtuous errands, or those more nefarious.


Historically the Tulpa are creatures associated with Tibetan Buddhism, and the Buddhist religion suggests that it is the mind that creates this world of appearances in which we now dwell, and as such the mind is capable of creating any physical object desired, simply through will.
For gifted adepts the creation of a Tulpa can be instantaneous, but for most the creation of consciousness from pure will takes intense and prolonged episodes of concentration. Often used to attack enemies from a distance the Tulpa are not without their dangers for those who create them. For Tulpa have been known to develop intelligence over time, and craving independence attack those who would control them.
How to create a Tulpa - The Tibetan ThoughtForm
The creation of a Tulpa is achieved primarily through the power of visualization.  All else should be emptied from the mind with all focus being centered upon this entities creation. Tulpa may come in human, animal, mythical beast, or any other form desired that is best suited to achieve your chosen aims. The most important thing to remember when attempting to create a Tulpa is that it is you that gives form to all that surrounds you, a tree is only a tree because your mind tells you that this is so. And as such there is no more reason for said tree to exist, than there is for anything else that you choose to acknowledge.
Breathing Life into Dreams - Manifesting Tulpa
Begin by imagining your Tulpa in form as an image inside your minds eye, and then begin to add substance to your design. Add detail and character to the structure of your desired manifestation, giving concrete expression and three dimensions to your Tulpa to create a palpable being. You are the architect of this creation, transforming illusion into life, and as such the limits of your Tulpa, in knowledge and power are limited only by the strength of your imagination and will.The successful creation of a Tulpa will take every ounce of concentration you possess, and an unhindered belief in the fact that this worlds constraints are no more than self-imposed restrictions, that once free from, anything becomes possible.

  1. Wow, I never heard of this but I think I know where all of those "create your own reality/power of positive thinking/ wealth creation" books ad infinitum have their source. Tulpa, no wonder Grandpa never got it right, he didn't believe.

  2. "unhindered belief in the fact that this worlds constraints are no more than self-imposed restrictions, that once free from, anything becomes possible." this seems to me, to be a very good belief.

    1. And it is, but if you've read the bible, Jesus warned us about these things. It will ultimately destroy your soul, even if it starts out looking like it's working for you how you wanted, it will turn on you and destroy you way worse then any temporary happiness you may get from the chosen effects you summoned it for.

  3. I really enjoyed reading this post! While I am familiar with the powers of attraction and visualization, I had never heard of the "Tulpa;" thanks for sharing something new to me!

    If you think these are interesting, you ought to check out the Golems of mystical Hebraic origin. The ancient Hebrew priests took it a step further than visualization; the adept, after much cleansing and purification, actually builds a creature out of clay and imbues it with life. Aryeh Kaplan's Sefer Yetzirah has some information about this (along with all kinds of Qabbalistic goodies, besides)...and of course some of Terry Pratchett's Discworld series involve golems (fiction, but funny and informative anyway).

    Anyway, thanks again for another cool Hub :-)

  4. This article is fabulous - thank you for revealing yet another way creation can be approached. Regarding the Golem, I saw a movie about Jesus a few years ago that depicted him making a golem from clay by the river bank - he formed doves and they flew - and he got in trouble for it from his elders.

  5. I have recently read a book called The Aladin Experience. It gives step by step directions on how to create a tulpa (genie). I am attempting to create a paladin, who's sole purpose is to stand guard over me and provide protection for myself. I have given it ultimate power and magical healing abilities.

  6. Is the name of the book The Aladdin Experience? or is it the Aladdin Factor?

  7. Yes, we all have imaginations, but that's all it is. Just because you want to believe it doesn't make it true. We are not magical gods. Too bad though.

  8. NO! This is BAD! You guys don't understand the extent of danger present when creating a tulpa. Unless you're extremely advanced in meditation, mental discipline, etc., you WILL lose control of a tulpa. It assumes a mind, and sometimes even a body, of its own. You have to be EXTREMELY skilled in the way of mental abilities to keep it reigned in, and even then there shouldn't be a reason to make one in the first place. please heed my warning. Don't go messing with making a tulpa or tulpas unless you've done extensive research, know what you're doing and have a 100% good reason to do so.

    This is no joke. I wish people would stop treating their mental capabilities like a cool trick.

    1. Exactly, there are good and positive things you can and should do with your mind, but you don't need to conjure up any form especially one that comes from chaos. Chaos is evil, evil begets evil. This isn't religion or anything speaking, just a person who has studied human behavior forever and have seen the causes and effects of this type of manifestation.

    Anon, you are spot on with this. Please think of the tibetan mystic Alexandra David Neel, a woman of extraordinary ability, who created a "jolly monk." He basically took on a life of his own and she had a difficult time dissolving him. These abilities are not to be toyed with.

  10. Thanks for writing this article, it was really informative! I'm creating a plot for an urban fantasy-style novel, in which the characters create tulpas (I can't say much more than that, haha). This article is a great resource to get ideas regarding what said tulpas can and can't do. I'll definitely be referring back to this page during my writing!

  11. Please, I could use help from someone experienced wit this. I have done it 5 years ago and now I practically don't have a life of my own. My thoughtform has grown on me like a resilient parasite. I sustain it, it draws my energy and I want to be rid of it.

    Anon, or anyone experienced could you help me?

  12. In order to disolve a tulpa i would think that the same way you made it you have to try and uncreate it by imagining it gone out of existence. How does one go about making a tulpa or for that matter how long does it take for one person? Two people focusing on the same thing?

  13. I'm very skeptical being that too me; one that "frees oneself from reality's restraints" seems to me a delusion before death.

    But then again, I am someone who has never achieved such a mastery, so I cannot know for certain that such things can or cannot be achieved.

    But I'll give it a try.
