Re: The Precious Treasury of the Expanse and Awakened Awareness: The Ornaments of the Definitive Secret

Well the translators have in this case decided to use these words.
Of course it may not please the bibliophiles or poets.
Practitioners practice and keep it simple.

Re: To account for the cause of this decline in the fortunes of Bön in both Zhang-zhung and Tibet.

@Passingby stories as: To account for the cause of this decline in the fortunes of Bön in both Zhang-zhung and Tibet or similar bon vs. buddhist .

Re: To account for the cause of this decline in the fortunes of Bön in both Zhang-zhung and Tibet.

I heard it both ways from Bon teachers before actually. The timeline of Bon is obviously quite unclear but there were two wars against Zhang Zhung by both kings with Trisong Deutsan finally completing the annexation of that region no? Please provide several sources for your claims? It is not possib...

Re: To account for the cause of this decline in the fortunes of Bön in both Zhang-zhung and Tibet.

Generally stated it would be unfathomable if Guru Rinpoche, Vairochana and the King would have something against their own doctrines aka Kuntuzangpo. Yungdrung Bon is very Kuntuzangpo. But again I would understand if they have something against the shamanistic himalayan religion that have been there...

Re: To account for the cause of this decline in the fortunes of Bön in both Zhang-zhung and Tibet.

As I think the story is gossip and a seed of disharmony. I dont believe that Shardza would ever quote that text, as it is nonsense. The Buddha (Kalama Suttas): Kalamas, don’t go by reports, by legends, by traditions, by scripture, by logical conjecture, by inference, by analogies, by agreement thro...

Re: New Longchenpa translations from Eric Fry-Miller

I ordered a lot from Eric. Indeed he disappeared some times maybe retreat etc.
But I dont think he would with awareness take some ones money without providing.
I think he is a honest. Please contact him again.

Claim: Buddha Shakyamuni was a student/emanation of Bon Buddha?

Hello Is this claim true? Where can we find evidence? I told that this claim will just reap negativity and wanted it to be removed. As this did not happen. Maybe then we try to research into it? https://i.imgur.com/M5gjO6v.png https://www.facebook.com/groups/bonposoftheworld/?epa=SEARCH_BOX https://...
