Overview

Bön, the ancient pre-Buddhist religion of Tibet, is still practiced today with a rapidly growing number of readers interested in the shamanism and magic that are part of its complete path to liberation. Full of practical and explicit instructions, this handbook for Westerners details the outer and inner fundamental Bön practices. This volume is part of a first wave of Bön books that are finding an enthusiastic North American audience.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"I strongly recommend this excellent guidebook for practitioners and for anyone else who would like a window into the view and practice of Bön. The practices of ngondro are very important because they provide the firm, stable foundation one needs for engaging in any of the higher practices of the Bön Buddhist tradition, including dzogchen practice. Readers will benefit from the high level of clarity, depth, and detail that Geshe Nyima Dakpa Rinpoche offers regarding all aspects of these wonderful and essential teachings."—Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche, author of Healing with Form, Energy, and Light
