Chapter Summary

This sixth volume is concerned with the practice of the three vows described as 1. those of personal liberation and corresponding to the vows of the Lower Vehicle; 2. the vows of Eternal Mind-Heroes who follow the teachings of the Great Vehicle; and 3. the vows preciously kept by tantric adepts and which include here the pledges to maintain for the practice of the Great Perfection. The root-text of this volume, in five chapters describing the three vows to be maintained by monks. Shardza Rinpoche's detailed analysis in text no. 12 provides a clear insight into a field barely known as far as the Bon tradition is concerned. The three vows that monks have to maintain are (p. 36-37) those of personal liberation, of Eternal Mind-Heroes (corresponding to Buddhist bodhisattvas) and the tantric vows. The text is very important for the monastic tradition of Bon.

Keywords: Bon tradition; Buddhist bodhisattvas; Great Perfection; Great Vehicle; personal liberation; Shardza Rinpoche
