Geshe Chongtul Rinpoche has been teaching Bön religion in North America over the last decade. Each year the number of students increases because of a growing interest in meditation and in Bön religion. Rinpoche believes the interest in Bön – particularly the Bön Dzogchen meditation system – reflects a growing desire for peace.

Many westerners may feel a natural connection with Tibetans, Tibetan culture, and the ancient practice of Bön meditation because it applies equally well to people who have been born in various times and places.  Rinpoche established Bön Shen Ling in 2006 to preserve and share ancient Tibetan teachings from an unbroken lineage of great teachers. Also known as Tog Den Won Po, Rinpoche believes these teachings to be greatly relevant and valuable for everyone.
