The Buddhist Council of Wales is delighted to welcome The Tibetan Yungdrung Bön as an Associate Member.
Here are a few extracts from their website:
The Buddha taught Yungdrung Bön Buddhism comprising of Sutra, Tantra, and Dzogchen in Shambala and Zhang Zhung more than 18,000 years ago. Eventually his teachings were imported into Tibet and are the original spiritual tradition of Tibet and the Tibetan people.
“Human Life, no matter how successful, famous, rich, and powerful one may think one is, it is completely incomplete without taking a proper spiritual path. All the external visible objects and internal thoughts and emotions are like soap bubbles which are subject to burst and keep on bursting! Yet, ignorantly, one is so much attached to all of these visions and therefore one suffers endlessly. Taking tranquilizer pills is not the answer, but to learn to detach from attachment is the supreme and lasting tranquilizer as Buddha Tonpa Shenrab and his successors have taught!”
— Lama Phuntsog Khemsar Rinpoche
May all the sentient beings that are
encompassed by the SKY be enriched with
happiness and the cause of happiness!
May all the sentient beings be parted from
suffering and the causes of suffering!
May the minds of all sentient beings abide
in the state of equipoise, in which there
exists neither happiness nor unhappiness!
May all sentient beings never be
separated from the happiness of the
Eternal state of the Mind!
