Yungdrung Bön Foundation Germany

The Yungdrung Bön Foundation in Germany was founded ans sponsored the year 2000 by Wangden Kreuzer. The foundation is under guidance of S. E. Yongdzin Lopön Tenzin Namdak Rinpoche and Khenpo Tenpa Yungdrung Rinpoche 


What is the aim of the foundation?

To preserve the heritage of Yungdrung Bön Tradition as a source of wisdom and culture.  

  • Which are actual projects of the foundation?
  • Triten Norbutse monastery  
  • School for traditional Tibetan Medicine in Kathmandu  
  • Yungdrung Kundak Ling south of Sikkim. 
  • Other important projects, we want to mention 2 

Another big project already for some years is the International Himalaya School in Siliguri in India. This school is a very special project of S. E. Yongdzin Lopön Tenzin Namdak Rinpoche. His vision is to give children around the Himalayas, who are connected to Bön-tradition, a school. There they can get a real education by keeping their cultural background / environment and to speak their language. 

Normally children go to the public school with the local language and different culture, with minimum education and long school ways.

The new school gives a shelter to boys and girls where they do not lose the contact to parents and relatives.

A quiet new big project is the new building of a internet school / living home for children in Lubra , a small village in the mountains of Mustang/ Nepal. In Lubra mainly live families of the Bön-Tradition. The building of this school will be sponsored with 93.000 € (which means 75% ) by the German Government:  Bundesministerium für Wirtschaftliche Zusammenarbeit (BMZ).

Furthermore the German Yungdrung Bön foundation organizes Seminars as well as Retreats with  Ven. Khenpo Tenpa Yungdrung Rinpoche, Geshe Gelek Jinpa and Geshe Lungrig. 

Since November 2015 Khenpo Rinpoche guides a Dzogchen-Practise-Training, where Khenpo-La teaches from Gyalwa Chaktri. This group will practise the complete Gyalwa Chaktri over several years together.
