Kunsang Dolma interviews Geshe Tenzin Wangyal, head of the Ligmincha Bon center based in Charlottsville, Virginia on Bon Tradition. He says Bon is Tibet’s oldest spiritual tradition including teachings and practices applicable to all aspects of life such as our relation with the elemental qualities of nature, our ethical, and moral behavior. According to the Bon account of its origins, many thousands of years before the birth of the Buddha Shakyamuni, the Tonpa Shenrab Miwoche came to this world and expounded his teaching in the land of Olmo Lunging. Tonpa Shenrab Miwoche is the founder of Bon tradition. Followers of Bon receive oral teachings and transmissions from teachers in a lineage unbroken from ancient times until the present day.
