In mysticism a Tulpa is the concept of a being or object which is created through sheer willpower alone. It is a materialized thought that has taken physical form and is usually regarded as synonymous to a thoughtform.

Humans have a terrifying ability to create a tulpa via faith, willpower, and their imaginations through their connection to the Dreamlands.


A Tulpa can have almost any characteristic that is imagined.


The term comes from the works of Alexandra David-Neel, who claimed to have created a tulpa in the image of a jolly, Friar Tuck-like monk which later developed a life of its own and had to be destroyed.
