Yeru Bön Center and The Tibet House is pleased to co-host Latri Nyima Dakpa Rinpoche’ teaching of Tonpa Shenrab’s Profound Words of Wisdom.


This three-day teaching event begins Friday, February 9; 7–9PM with

Tibetan Yungdrung Bön

Yungdrung Bön is Tibet’s oldest spiritual tradition. It has rich traditions and a sophisticated set of philosophy and teachings. These teachings and practices help to cultivate the heart-mind of compassion, healing, forgiveness, clarity, bring peace into your life, and ultimately lead to enlightenment

Yungdrung Bön generally known as the Nine Ways of Bön, can be categorized into three main sets of teachings. These three sets are known as the Outer, Inner, and Secret teachings (Sanskrit Sutra, Tantra, and Dzogchen.) Each of these sets of teachings is a complete system of spiritual development, that can lead the practitioner to attain enlightenment. Yungdrung Bön practitioners may choose to practice one, or more, of these sets of teachings, based on their capacity of understanding and the suitability of the practice.

Latri Khenpo Nyima Dakpa Rinpoche will  talk of the history of Bön, its traditions, it’s practice and its healing benefits to all sentient beings.

This talk is the preliminary talk to this weekend’s teaching of Buddha Tonpa Shenrab’s  Profound Words of Wisdoms.

We welcome you to participate to this wonderful talk on Yungdrung Bön and to continue your weekend with the teaching of Buddha Tonpa Shenrab’s Four Profound Words of Wisdoms.

Buddha Tonpa Shenrab’s  Profound Words Of Wisdoms

February  10-11, 2018  |  10:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.

Tonpa Shenrab, the Completely Enlightened One, the founder of the Yungdrung Bön religion, was born 18,000 years ago in the land of Olmo Lung Ring. Before he attained enlightenment (Buddhahood), he went through the six realms of cyclic existence in countless births. He entered the door of enlightenment through the practices of accumulating merit and purifying himself, resulting in the attainment of the transcendental qualities of loving kindness and compassion.  He is superior among all the exalted enlightened beings and is dedicated to the liberation of all sentient beings. In order to rescue them, he turned the Dharma Wheel of Bön three times, as an antidote to all suffering.Today, through an unbroken lineage, the teachings of Tonpa Shenrab are the fundamental essence of Sutra, Tantra and Dzogchen.  Tonpa Shenrab instructed his fellow disciples to be true practitioners by implementing the teachings of Bön in everyday life, to heal both the physical and mental blockage we hold within us. In this teaching, Latri Khenpo Nyima Dakpa Rinpoche will share Tonpa Shenrab’s Four Profound Words, guiding us through their meaning and how we can apply this wisdom in our daily lives to improve our wellbeing. The teaching will progress from an understanding of the Dzogchen view of Bön, to the right manner of conduct, to unconditional compassion.  This teaching gives us the essence of Sutra, Tantra and Dozgchen, and how to realize the in our daily lives.

Rinpoche will also give us a deeper understanding of the Ten Perfections.  He will teach us to apply this practice in our daily lives, beginning at a simple level and growing gradually with mindfulness and consistency.
