These publications are restricted to Bönpo practitioners who have received relevant transmissions and teachings.

With the full support of Yongdzin Lopön Tenzin Namdak Rinpoche, the supreme lineage holder of the tradition, Foundation for the Preservation of Yungdrung Bön has published a range of books on many aspects of Yungdrung Bön, from a full-colour travelogue covering historic Bön sites in Nepal to detailed Tantric teachings. As well as edited transcripts of teachings on Dzogchen, we also publish translations of prayers and ritual practices for those who have appropriate transmissions.
       We are currently working with a team of translators so more books in various formats will soon be available in Chinese, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Polish and Russian.
        All our publications are made in close collaboration with authentic Bönpo lamas.

Few people realise just how much it costs to produce books. Aside from the hours spent writing, translating, editing and proofreading, there is layout and cover design to be done, and this requires some skill as well as advanced computer software. Then once a book is published, FPYB is legally obliged to provide five Legal Deposit Libraries plus the British Library with a copy each at our own cost, which can run into hundreds of pounds a year. Our staff are all unpaid volunteers and we try to keep our books affordable, so we rely on your support to keep going.

Teachings by H.E. Yongdzin Lopön Tenzin Namdak Rinpoche.
Preface by Geshe Gelek Jinpa.
Introduction by Dmitry Ermakov.

This volume contains Bönpo Dzogchen Masters’ quintessential pith instructions on the Clear Light meditation. These teachings have come down to us over many thousands of years directly from the primordial Buddha Kuntu Zangpo through an unbroken lineage which is still transmitted and practised today. Here these heart teachings are delivered in a free and inspiring style by the current lineage holder, Yongdzin Lopön Tenzin Namdak Rinpoche, along with his own instructions on the practices of Guru Yoga, Trekchö and Thögal. This is the first time he has made his teachings on the Experiential Transmission publically available in English.

Masters of the Zhang Zhung Nyengyud is a beautifully produced hardback, 154 pages, with over forty-five full colour illustrations; in keeping with tradition, each master’s instructions appear alongside his image from a set painted in Tibet before the Chinese takeover.

Another unique feature of this book is the lineage tree diagram thanks to which we can easily trace the various branches of the Zhang Zhung Nyengyud lineage from its source to the present day. This is the first time such a diagram has been compiled.

“The key instructions contained in the Zhang Zhung Nyengyud are extremely important as by following them it takes only one lifetime to achieve Buddhahood; through practising these teachings, many great practitioners – including the Masters here as well as Shardza Tashi Gyaltsen and his students – achieved Rainbow Body in one lifetime.”
Geshe Gelek Jinpa


It is rare to find a recorded lineage of female teachers in either Bön or Tibetan Buddhism, but here thirty heart teachings of Bön Khandro are being made publically available in English for the first time. In fact, this book combines many unique features in one concise volume.

First and foremost, the Dzogchen Yetri Thasel Mogyud, a succession of women from all over Central and Inner Asia who received precious Dzogchen teachings, and went on to achieve complete Buddhahood within one lifetime. These amazing ladies of wisdom practised with perseverance in a variety of circumstances and, gaining insight into the true Nature of their own minds, they obtained miraculous powers and passed on the essence of their experience to a single female disciple. These quintessential pith instructions were collected like precious drops of nectar and written down by the eighth century Bönpo sage Lachen Drenpa Namkha.
Yongdzin Lopön Tenzin Namdak Rinpoche, the most erudite teacher of Yungdrung Bön, has taught on this text twice in the West, and the transcripts have been edited and amalgamated here. The book also includes a translation of the root text.

Another major feature of this publication is the specially commissioned thangka of this cycle of Khandro painted by Geshe Mönlam Wangyal. Images of this female lineage are extremely rare, and Yongdzin Rinpoche consulted various texts to compile a detailed description of each lady. This text is also included here, and the image of each Khandro is printed alongside her heart teachings enabling the reader to invoke her blessings while reading.

The second half of the book is dedicated to the last yogini in this lineage, Chöza Bönmo, who not only fully realized the ultimate meaning of Dzogchen but also played a pivotal role in saving the teachings of Yungdrung Bön from almost certain annihilation during the eighth century persecution in the reign of the Tibetan king Trisong Deutsen. As an inspiration to Western students, Nagru Geshe Gelek Jinpa has compiled her biography by extracting key episodes of her spiritual path – the teachings she received from her two main masters Lachen Drenpa Namkha and Lishu Tagring, how she practised, and her inspiring Song of Experience. This is a path which, with the guidance of the teachings translated here, we can all aspire to follow.

Apart from the transcript of Yongdzin Rinpoche’s teaching, this is a bi-lingual publication in English and Tibetan.
Also included are:
Prayers to Drenpa Namkha and Chöza Bönmo;
25 colour plates with the images of individual Khandro, Drenpa Namkha, Lishu Tagring etc;
A full colour poster of the Mogyud thangka.


This book is based on the teaching discourse given by Kyabje Yongdzin Lopön Tenzin Namdak Rinpoche on The Four Wheels of Bön. Found in Zijyi, the long biography of Tönpa Shenrab Miwoche, the Buddha of Yungdrung Bön. This discourse combines the oral translation of the original text with the direct instructions coming from the mind of the Teacher of Teachers – Yongdzin Rinpoche, the most illustrious and erudite Bönpo master and scholar of our times. Since the teachings contained in this volume form the very foundation for the practice and study of Yungdrung Bön, this text will bring benefit to all, from those who are just beginning to take an interest in this most ancient and authentic spiritual tradition to those who have already been studying and practising for many years, as well as to academicians and Bönpo scholars.

The teaching presented in this book is an edited transcript of a retreat given by Drubdra Khenpo Tsultrim Tenzin, Abbot of the Meditation School at Triten Norbutse Monastery, Kathmandu (28.12.2021 to 01.01.2022). Broadcast via video link from Nepal, the retreat was dedicated to instructions from the Mother Tantra of Yungdrung Bön on taking dreams as the path.
Although this book has been made public following Khenpo’s explicit wish, anyone who seriously wants to apply these methods must seek an authentic master and receive the authorisation and transmission in person. This will give the practitioner the ability to clearly understand the meaning of these instructions and connect him/her to the blessing of this lineage, thus ensuring their practice bears fruit.

This public discourse on the practice of Dzogchen in daily life was given by Drubdra Khenpo Tsultrim Tenzin as part of a series of events – conference, rituals, initiations, teachings and cultural program – organised at Triten Norbutse Bönpo Monastery, Kathmandu, Nepal to celebrate Yongdzin Lopön Tenzin Namdak Rinpoche’s 95th birthday in January 2020.


Magyu Tsalung & Tummo is the first such detailed and richly illustrated manual for the ancient practice of yoga of winds, channels, inner heat and physical exercises. Here, Drubdra Khenpo Tsultrim Tenzin teaches a text extracted from the Mother Tantra of Yungdrung Bön, the spiritual tradition of Tibet which stems from the Central Asian Buddha Tönpa Shenrab Miwo who predates the more widely known Indian Buddha Shakyamuni by thousands of years.

While these techniques were previously reserved for those initiated into the Mother Tantra, Drubdra Khenpo has decided to share his daily practice with a wider audience because these methods have the potential to bring profound benefit not only for the development of meditation but also for health.
The tsalung and tummo techniques explained in detail here can be practised safely, but it is advisable to receive scriptural authorisation and further instructions from the master in order to avoid common pitfalls and further develop your practice.

This book is available in two editions, the second includes the original Tibtean text. 


Pith Instructions on Dzogchen is an edited transcript of the Dzogchen instructions given by Yongdzin Lopon Tenzin Namdak Rinpoche for the Zhang Zhung Nyengyud Gomdra Group at
Shenten Dargye Ling on 17th September, 2015.


This book is an edited transcript of the discourse given by Kyabje Menri Tridzin Lungtog Tenpai Nyima Rinpoche during his visit to Shenten Dargye Ling Bönpo centre, France, in 2010. The teachings are based on Athri Bönpo Dzogchen cycle and contain clear and lucid instructions on approaching Dzogchen, starting from Preliminary Practices right up to the Introduction to the Natural State of Mind, Dzogchen itself.

Kyabje Menri Tridzin Rinpoche’s unique teaching style combines scholastic brilliance and profound personal experience with humour and a knowledge of life’s sometimes harsh realities. This book will be equally useful to all, from those who have just discovered the Yungdrung Bön tradition to academicians and scholars, students and practitioners.


Hailed as a fascinating and unique book, this is the first in-depth study of its kind comparing the ancient Bön religion with the Siberian shamanic tradition of Lake Baikal. Combining scholarly research with spiritual insight and with over 200 illustrations, maps and diagrams, the information is presented in a clear and lively way, enabling the reader to navigate easily through the various topics dealt with and to follow the threads of the intricate tapestry woven as the parallels between the ancient shamanic traditions of Tibet and Siberia unfold.

However, it goes much further than usual research in comparative religion can; while Bө and Bön stands up to academic scrutiny, it is written from the perspective of ‘an insider’ and the author draws on his many years of experience in both Yungdrung Bön and the Bө Murgel tradition of Buryatia to bring this subject to life and help us unlock some hidden aspects of both belief systems.

This book contains hitherto unpublished interviews with Yongdzin Lopön Tenzin Namdak Rinpoche and Khenpo Tenpa Yungdrung, excerpts from their teachings and presentations given especially for this publication as well as detailed analyses of offering rituals and ransom rites. It is richly illustrated with pictures of Bön deities and masters, and original photos of many rituals. It also contains interviews with Bө and Utgan priests and priestesses in Siberia together with diary excerpts – including an eye-witness account of an initiation ritual – and photos from the author’s trips in the heartland of the Mongol-Buryats. The costume and ritual implements of a Buryatian Bө priest are dealt with in detail, the paramount importance of the transmission lineages is highlighted, and a list of the major deities of Bө Murgel is given.

Well-written and well researched, Bө and Bön will appeal to scholars and practitioners alike, as well as to all those of an open and inquisitive mind with a general interest in Tibetan and Siberian spirituality. As Charles Ramble, Lecturer in Tibetan and Himalayan Studies, Oxford University, says, “This fascinating and provocative book is sure to stimulate interest and debate concerning the religious heritage of Inner Asia”.


Oral Instructions of Yongdzin Lopon Tenzin Namdak Rinpoche on ཀུན་ཏུ་བཟང་པོའི་སྙིང་ཏིག / Innermost Essence of Kuntuzangpo (also known as Heart Drops of Dharmakaya) by Shardza Trashi Gyaltsen extracted and edited by Carol Ermakova and Dmitry Ermakov. This booklet is a perfect reading companion to Gyaltsen, Shardza Tashi. Commentary by Lopon Tenzin Namdak, Heart Drops of Dharmakaya: Dzogchen Practice of the Bön Tradition (Ithaca: Snow Lion Publications, 1993).


 For many millennia, Yungdrung Bön has been practised in the remote mountainous regions of Nepal which once formed part of the ancient Zhang Zhung empire. Although the tradition’s fate fluctuated with the changing political tides, many aspects of this rich religious culture still survive today.

Bön in Nepal is the fruit of one Bönpo monk’s expeditions into these areas to uncover and document living traces of Zhang Zhung’s culture and religion. Illustrated with over 200 magnificent full colour photographs, this book opens a window onto the lives of Bönpos in Nepal today, gracefully combining Nagru Geshe Gelek Jinpa’s personal diary with his meticulous research to provide the reader with a moving yet accurate account. By matching scriptural texts and historical documents with family histories and local folklore, Geshe Gelek is able to pinpoint several important sacred sites previously lost to us, and through Bön in Nepal we, too, can share his excitement as he discovers, for instance, the mountain hermitage of Zhang Zhung Nyengyud Dzogchen lineage master Ronggom Togme Zhigpo, or the ruins of Bönkor monastery. This book also contains a wealth of information on monasteries, ngagpa centres, family shrines, lineages and rituals regularly performed today in the Bönpo enclaves.

Bön in Nepal is sure to become a favourite among lovers of Nepal’s rich cultural fabric, as well as among those interested in the origins of Tibetan culture and religion and the historical geography of ancient Zhang Zhung and Yungdrung Bön.

“The present book, meticulously and sensitively translated into English by Carol Ermakova and Dmitry Ermakov, offers a highly readable account of Gelek’s journey – or rather, series of journeys – to the main Bon locations of Central and Western Nepal. The lively narrative leads the reader through the gorges and passes of some of the world’s most awe-inspiring landscapes, acutely conveying the challenges of travelling in this unforgiving terrain. Our constant guide on these long marches, the author shares with us his sadness at instances of religious decline or sectarian conflict, his joys at small acts of kindness, and his elation at a historical discovery or signs of vitality of the Bon religion.”
Prof. Charles Ramble


This booklet contains two practices of Sherab Jamma: firstly, teachings on the Wisdom Goddess of Loving-Kindness and Compassion; secondly, the translation of a short prayer to Sherab Jamma along with instructions on how to use the prayer.

Personal security remains elusive even during the most peaceful periods in history since, due to personal and collective karma, all beings in samsara suffer from their own emotional afflictions and meet with negative circumstances, which in turn triggers all kinds of fears and insecurities in each one of us. That is why the practice of Sherab Jamma, the Sovereign of Protection, remains as pertinent today as it was in the distant past when these teachings were first taught to humanity.

These two very essential practices of Sherab Jamma will be equally useful to all Bönpos, whether seasoned practitioners or beginners.


This text has been translated for practice and group recitation during the Du Tri Su Drubchen and empowerment ceremony to be held in Shenten Dargye Ling, France, in October 2018, where Yongdzin Rinpoche has graciously been teaching for many years. The practice and empowerment are offered for the benefit of all sentient beings and for peace in all worlds.


A collection of aspirational prayers transmitted by the great Bon sage Tsewang Rigdzin and translated here into English for the first time by Yongdzin Tenzin Namdak Rinpoche. The booklet is international bilingual, with Tibetan, English and the phonetic transliteration presented line by line.

虹の身体の成就者たち ―ボン教のゾクチェン「体験の伝授」の系譜と教え


Эта увлекательная и уникальная книга является первым в своем роде глубоким и детальным исследованием взаимоотношений между древней тибетской религией бöн и сибирскими шаманскими традициями с берегов озера Байкал. Соединяя свойства научного исследования с духовным пониманием, дополненная более чем двумястами иллюстрациями, картами и диаграммами, эта уникальная презентация представлена ясно и живо, и позволяет читателю с легкостью обозревать различные темы и следовать за переплетающимися нитями параллелей между древними традициями Тибета и Сибири.
Автор ясно объясняет характеристики различных видов бöна и указывает на то, как и чем юнгдрунг бöн ‒ учения центральноазиатского будды Тöнпа Шенраб Миво ‒ выделяется из них. Он также указывает на меру проникновения и распространения бöнпо культуры в тибетском буддизме, подчеркивая необходимость поддержания открытой и не-сектантской позиции, поскольку обе религии, юнгдрунг бöн и тибетский буддизм, исходят от учений будд, которые проявились в различные эпохи в различных географических регионах нашей планеты.
Эта книга содержит до сих пор неопубликованные интервью с Йонгдзин Лопöн Тензин Намдаком Ринпоче, верховным учителем традиции юнгдрунг бöн, и другими бöнпо ламами выдержки из их учений и презентации, данные специально для этой публикации, а также детальный анализ ритуалов подношения и выкупа. Она богато иллюстрирована изображениями бöнпо божеств и учителей и включает фотографии многих ритуалов. В ней также содержатся интервью с бөө и утган, бурятскими шаманами и шаманками; выдержки из дневников, которые включают описания многих ритуалов, включая ритуалы инициации, подношения и т. д.; и фотографии, сделанные автором во время его путешествий по святым местам Бурятии. В книге рассматриваются в деталях костюм и ритуальные предметы бурятских бөө, подчеркивается первостепенная важность линий передачи в традиции бөө мүргэл и дается описание ее основных богов, называемых тэнгэри.


Die Unterweisungen in diesem Buch sind die Grundlage für die Übung und das Studium der Lehren des Yungdrung Bön und werden sowohl für diejenigen von Nutzen sein, die gerade erst angefangen haben, sich für diese älteste und ursprünglichste aller spirituellen Traditionen zu interessieren, als auch für diejenigen, die sie schon seit vielen Jahren erforschen und ausüben, aber auch für Akademiker und Bönpo-Forscher.




Approccio allo Dzogchen secondo il Ciclo dell’Athri trascrizione di un insegnamento orale di Sua Santità Lungtog Tenpai Nyima Rinpoche, 33mo Abate di Menri, tenuto a Shenten, in Francia, nel 2010.

La trascrizione conserva tutta la freschezza e l’arguzia di Sua Santità, la sua brillantezza e il suo umorismo. E’ un insegnamento pubblico e non ha restrizioni, può essere letto da tutti.

The main part of this Short Drenpa Namkha Tsog, Accomplishment Practice of Khöpung, was discovered by the great tertön Pönse Khyunggötsal. It was first transmitted in the West by Yongdzin Rinpoche in Wells, Austria, in 1995. There were two versions of this Tsog in circulation; the more elaborate one included an offering rite to Mibdüd Jampa Thraggo and tertön Sangngag Lingpa’s Song of Experience, both of which were added by Geshe Gelek Jinpa and are included here. The entire text of this bi-lingual edition has been retranslated and re-edited, the original Tibetan uchen text added, and the phonetic transliteration revised and corrected.
