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 2018, that date falls on February 20th. Within the Yungdrung Bön tradition, Lama Nyammé Sherap Gyaltsen is often referred to as the Second Buddha. 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.
“King of great bliss, embodiment of Küntu Zhangpo and Gyalwa Düpa,
You are like the wisdom deity, Mawé Sengé, never forgetting what you have perceived.
You are the unequaled crown ornament of the Bönpo world.
At the feet of Sherap Gyaltsen, I pray.”
