ABOUT BÖN BUDDHISM
Bön is Tibet’s oldest spiritual tradition. It includes teachings and practices applicable to all parts of life, including our relationship with the elemental qualities of nature; our ethical and moral behavior; the development of love, compassion, joy and equanimity; and Bön's highest teachings of the “Great Perfection,” dzogchen.
According to the traditional Bön account of its origins, many thousands of years before the birth of the Buddha Shakyamuni, the Buddha Tonpa Shenrab Miwoche came to this world and expounded his teachings in the land of Olmo Lungring. "Ol" symbolizes the unborn, "mo" the undiminishing, "lung" the prophetic words of Tonpa Shenrab and "ring" his everlasting compassion. Some modern scholars have identified Olmo Lungring with Zhang Zhung, the country surrounding Mount Kailash in western Tibet and the cradle of Tibetan civilization.
