The Phurpa Teaching is based upon the enlightened teachings given to the World thousands of years ago by the Enlightened Being, Tonpa Shenrab. Having attained Enlightenment 18,000 years ago, Tonpa Shenrab is recognized as the Buddha of his era. He is the founder of the teachings called Yungdrung Bon, or Eternal Bon.

Bon is the indigenous religion/culture of Tibet. It has been practiced continuously for the past 18,000 years, emanating from the ancient region known as Zhang Zhung - an expanse of land that later became the region we now know as Tibet.

The Phurpa is one of the most potent, energetic teachings of Bon. By guiding Wisdom energy through a one-pointed focus, using the spiritual implement of the Phurpa, one can quickly transform and balance negative energy with the focused intensity of a thunderbolt. This most powerful force can help us handle people’s negative energy, dissolve our own internal fears and life struggles, as well as greatly strengthen our healing energies. The healing capacities are far reaching, including the capacity to assist those suffering from cancer and other chronic conditions.

Transforming our energy into Phurpa energy is simple, powerful and quick. With such strengthened energy, it becomes easy to address the negative and imbalanced forces that are causing harm to ourselves, others, our community and the environment.

The Phurpa Teaching is appropriate for those who are new to the Bon Teachings, as well as the experienced Bon practitioner. This powerful practice can be integrated into your daily life immediately.
