Hello dear readers,
The 4 King protectors are in Bön different then in the TibetanDorje Thegpa tradition.
The 4 King protectors of Bön who are here depicted stem from the temple entrance from Tashi Menri in Dolanji / India (HP)
Remarkable is that there is no King protector of the Center...
2 King protectors are to the left - (West+South) depicted on the wall of the main entrance of the temple
2 King protectors are to the right -(East+North) depicted on the wall of the main entrance of the temple
From right to left would that be:
East - King protectors Snow Lion Headed
North - King protectors Pig Headed
West - King protectors Bear Headed
South - King protectors Dragon Headed
They all fly on the holy bird of Bön, the Cuckoo.
There is also the other holy bird the Kyung or Garuda.
Remarkable is the pentagram in the right hand of the Bear Headed King protectors .
It is the sign of the magical bomb which has also Gerpung Nangzer Lopo in his hand.This ritual of throwing the magical bomb seems to be lost, when i understood this well.....
Best wishes for our individual practice
