May i introduce myself?
The name is Kalden Yungdrung and i am a Bönpo in the heart and the la.
Very good that the founder(s) thought to include on this forum a Bön sub-forum.
The most Vajrayana followers or Chödpas, do not know that Bön belongs to the 5 Tibetan Traditions as the oldest one.
Therefore is it amazing that there are persons who know this as a fact.
It is may be also wellknown that the Dalai Lama 14 did recognize in 1967 the Bön tradition as an authentic Tibetan tradition. So became the Bönpos member of the Tibetan Kashag or government in exile.
So the Tibetan exodus had something positive for the Bönpos because in that Tibet from before 1959, Bönpos could only dream about a Kashag membership............
My best wishes to everybodies personal development, regarding Bodhicitta emancipation and many thanks to take the Bön sub-forum into consideration as belonging to the 5 Tibetan traditions, anno data 2010.
