The 5th day of the 1st month of the Tibetan calendar is the celebration of the birth and cremation of Lama Nyammé Sherap Gyaltsen. In the Western calendar year of 2017, that date falls on March 3rd. Within the Yungdrung Bön tradition, Lama Nyammé Sherap Gyaltsen is often referred to as the Second Buddha. He was a reincarnation of Yikyi Khye’u Chung, one of Lord Tönpa Shenrap Miwoche’s sons. He was responsible for uniting the three transmissions of sutra, tantra and dzogchen as well as founding one of the largest Yungdrung Bön monasteries in Tibet, Tashi Menri Ling.  For more information, see previous post https://ravencypresswood.com/2016/02/13/celebration-of-the-second-buddha-nyamme-sherap-gyaltsen-2/
