A Collection Of Studies On The Tibetan Bon Tradition

Posted on | September 22, 2010 | No Comments

Tibetan Bon Tradition free ebookThe ‘Bon’ religious tradition of Tibet is often misunderstood as just another branch or sect of Buddhism. The historical predominance of Buddhism in all aspects of Tibetan political and social culture since the seventh century is responsible for such misconceptions. ‘Bonpos’, the followers of Bon religion had to endure centuries of persecution and social and political marginalization at the hands of the Buddhist majority. Hindus, Buddhists and Bonpos alike, the Bonpos have their holy Bonri Mountain in the south of Tibet. The doctrine of Bon has many similarities with that of Tibetan Buddhism, believing as they do in the concept of ‘samsara’, as a world of suffering, the law of ‘las dras’ or the law of moral causality (karma) and the corresponding concepts of rebirth in the six states of existence; and the ideal of enlightenment and liberation from samsaric rebirth.
