Tulpa's Complete DIY Guide to Tulpamancy




Tulpa's Complete DIY Guide to Tulpamancy Fourth Edition Rules! (V4.0)

AKA Book of Tulpa: the Extremely Long One.




Welcome to the longest guide on tulpas as of the time of writing! This is a technical manual, meaning it is dense, informative, and does not rely on any particular viewpoint.


What is a tulpa? That is a complicated question. It is a phenomenon that connects back to imaginary friends, split personalities, Tibetan Buddhism, modern psychology, shamanism, kids with too much free time on their hands, discipline, ritual, social movements, hallucinated voices, and weird mind hacks. This book both covers info on what a tulpa is, and serves as a creation guide in the event that you want one.


Why would you want one? Well, I can’t guarantee anything, but people have found spiritual truth, performance boosting effects, superior sexual experiences, social skill growth, recovery from mental illness, and more after experimenting with this stuff.


This text is divided into roughly four sections. Chapters 1-3 serve as an introduction. Warnings and considerations are introduced in chapter 2, and chapter 3 covers the foundational principles of the mental part of this practise. Chapters 4-6 cover the three basic steps of creating a tulpa, personality, form, and voice, though they are typically done together more or less. Chapters 7 and 8 take a break to look at problems of doubt, and theories of how tulpas work, and a bit on hypnosis. Chapters 9-12 cover advanced abilities of the tulpa, including intellectual growth, independence, imposition, possession and switching. These are typically learned after you establish communication with your tulpa, but can be looked at as ways to communicate as well. Finally, the last chapter has some info for explaining tulpas to people without tulpas, and some random facts about the community.


As of 5/16/21, none of these links work and will take you to the start of the guide. However, you still can use the outline tool that pops up on the left hand side to navigate to another section in the guide. -Ranger

Relevant? Not really because I'm completely tired of that discussion as I very clearly stated at the end of the last thread. Its relevance, and appropriateness for discussion disappeared somewhere around post fifty of the last thread.

I've moved this to Guides. Reason: this is such a big piece that 'approval' in the classical sense will never happen, realistically. I think this is mostly good, and further nitpicks, if anyone has the appetite for them, can happen post facto.

Update 3.4. This Update mainly adds a couple exercises to the possession chapter, a section on multiple tulpas wedged into the voice chapter, a section on body OS also in possession chapter.


I did some research on the word yi-dam, but it went in a circle, so I didn't make much of a change based on this. There really seems to be almost no connection between Buddhism and tulpamancy.

Hey tulpa001, nice guide!

I've been into tulpamancy for almost 2 month now,  and i have made some progress! my tulpa (Aya) was sentient like the 2nd day. i am able to "feel" what she says but it is not yet clear and loud words. just like feelings that are un-worded (if thats the term). for some reason she wanted to feel my body (possession?) so i have let her quiet a few times. she seems to like it. i dont think i have unclear things at the moment, as far as i understand, i have to keep forcing until i get to the point i(and she) want. i mostly do narrating any time of the day or when i am taking a shower (passively?), and rarely i get to meditate on her. i dont find meditation too useful and/or cant do it effectively yet. 

i do a lot of astrology work, spiritual things, tarot, wicca and all that. she seems to be getting a little bit of a Leo's personality (she was born/i started it all in Leo's month, July). I dont know how zodiac signs and tulpa works but she seems to be pretty much a leo. even thou i thought she would be a cancer since the had a Cancer moon and felt very like it. 

well, thats all information i have now, ask me for any other details and i will be happy to tell you! thanks for the guide, really!

This guide was a huge aid in helping me understand tulpas and how the whole process works. Other guides I found were either much smaller and less detailed, or focused on one very specific method and didn't mention anything else, which doesn't really help for a process that's different for everyone.

This guide however contains a huge amount of useful information, guides and exercises, and I would highly recommend it to any newcomers.

Thanks for the awesome guide!  :D
