This event is a one-off opportunity to attend online teachings by Drubdra Khenpo based on his recent book “Tummo: Practice of Self-Blazing Blissful Wisdom from the Compassionate Sun of the Mother Tantra”. For this book, Drubdra Khenpo composed six texts with western practitioners in mind, and they have all been translated into English. Topics cover tummo, tsalung, thigle practice, and an explanation on channels, chakras, winds and thigle as well as how to clear obstacles (gagsel). Drubdra Kenpo will teach in English. As this is FPYB’s first online event, we are keeping things simple so translation will not be available. Read more

Although these dates are not significant in the Bönpo calendar, it can nevertheless be an auspicious time to remember our dead. During the Drubchen practice retreat and empowerment in Shenten Dargye Ling 5 years ago, our Masters encouraged us to continue practising Du Tri Su mantra collectively or individually as often as we can, and particularly on days of remembrance. With the blessing of Yongdzin Rinpoche, the full Read more

Recently, this topic came up again in conversation when a friend  brought to my attention a section of Loel Guiness’ book Rainbow Body that contains an exposition of the Dzogchen view. We had a lively discussion about what was written there after my recent talk at Watkins Books in London and it is this discussion that has prompted me to write this article since, from the perspective of Dzogchen Read more

Today is the anniversary of when Mucho Demdrug (Tib. Mu-cho ldem-drug), one of the seven sons of Buddha Tönpa Shenrab Miwoche, turned the Wheel of Bön. When Tönpa Shenrab passed into nyangen ledepa (Tib. mya-ngan las-‘das-pa – parinirvana) in 7817 BC, Mucho Demdrug became Tönpa Shenrab’s Regent (Tib. gdung-sob). He descended on Earth from the realm of Cha (Tib. phywa) when the period of the Teachings of Body (Tib. sku-yi bstan-pa) was completed in 6016 BC and took charge of the Yungdrung Bön doctrines and their propagation in the new 10,000-year cycle of the Teachings of Speech (Tib. gsungs-gi bstan-pa).
