The Authentic Teaching of Yungdrung Bön

Rinpoche has always said, if the world crumbles and there are only one or two people who survived, and if per chance they were Bön practitioners, he prays they were taught and learned the authentic, true-to-text teachings of Bön. Then, Bön would continue its lineage.

Rinpoche continues to say that he must continue his teaching of Bön from the authentic texts, in the authentic sMenri way, because of his love and respect of Yungdrung Bön, his root teachers, His Holiness the late 33rd sMenri Trizin, His Eminence, Yongdzin Tenzin Namdak Rinpoche, and all of the enlightened teachers of Bön. Sometimes, this does not go well with students, but Rinpoche strongly believes that to truly understand Bön, to feel the powerful teachings of Bön, and to be able to share the teachings of Bön, all students should be committed to learning and practicing its authentic teachings.

Then, Rinpoche says, he will know that Bön will continue as an unbroken lineage. This is why it is so important for students to learn Bön authentically, which is not always easy, but slow by slow, students who are committed to learning and practicing the teachings of Bön will be fruitful. They will honor all of the teachers of Bön and the enlightened ones, past and present, and they will receive beautiful blessings in their lives.
