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
“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
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!
