Message from His Holiness of Bon - Tibetan Language




Respected Friends, 

Today marks one month that His Holiness has been resting well in the United States at the invitation of Bon Shen Ling in the Bon Shen Ling Temple in Woodside (Queens) New York. His Holiness is receiving complete medical checkups and great care from an excellent team of doctors. Thanks to this, he is feeling better every day and is looking forward to the teachings here in May.


Bon and Buddhist communities throughout Tibet, India, Nepal, Europe and the USA are sending strong collective prayers and are accumulating Long Life prayers to support the care he is receiving. Prayers are still needed for the next few months while His Holiness concludes his doctor visits and catches up with his rest from his regular schedule. If you wish to sponsor prayers through a donation, please click on the link below.


I keep His Holiness informed of your ongoing prayers. His Holiness sends greetings and gratitude to you through the short video posted on the Bon Shen Ling YouTube channel.


Thank you everyone. 

Chongtul Rinpoche

Tog Den Won Po Chongtul Rinpoche is the second son of six children, was raised in India by his Tibetan parents, father Amdo Sherpa, Lakha Wangchuk and mother Kham Nang Chen, Norzin. Chongtul was given his childhood name of Namgyal Wangdhu by the Abbot of Yungdrung Ling. At the age of two, the Abbot of Yungdrung Ling explained to the Abbot of Menri Monastery, His Holiness Menri Trizin 33rd, that this boy was a reincarnated lama who was closely associated with both abbots during a previous lifetime, and would be very important in the preservation of Bon transmissions.
