Anniversary of the Birth of Lord Tönpa Shenrap Miwoché

The enlightened Lord and founder of Yungdrung Bon, Tonpa Shenrap Miwoche

On the fifteenth day of the twelfth month of the Tibetan lunar calendar, Lord Shenrap was born in the human realm as a prince in the ancient land of Tazik.  His birth has traditionally been celebrated on the fifteenth day of the first month of the lunar calendar.  However, research by the esteemed scholar and spiritual master Yongdzin Tendzin Namdak Rinpoche has revealed the actual date to be the fifteenth day of the twelfth month.

“He is the Supreme Teacher, One who has gone beyond bliss, an authentic and completely Enlightened Being, a manifested Buddha, Tönpa Shenrap Miwo. His face is like the sun and moon and he sees throughout the ten directions. His divine Body is so beautiful that one cannot look away. In his right hand, he holds a golden chakshing painted with a turquoise yungdrung which shows that he is Lord of the 3,000-fold universe and Conqueror of this world system. His left hand holds the mudra of equipoise which shows that he has destroyed the door to birth into the lower realms of cyclic existence.”

~From the sacred Yungdrung Bön scriptures
