Chapter Summary

This work is of considerable importance for a correct understanding of the history of Bon from a Bon po perspective. Accounts of Bon in Buddhist literature often give an altered and partisan vision of what Bon has been and is now since the 10th.or 11th century. This Legs bshad mdzod covers the ancient history of Bon down to the early 20th century. It is based on a number of important sources which have been discussed by S.G. Karmay in The Treasury of Good Sayings. One of Shardza Rinpoche's main source for a part of the last chapter on Treasures is sGa ston Tshul khrims rgyal mtshan's gTer gyi kha byang, an early work describing the history of Treasures in the Bon tradition. The work was done in between sessions of teachings the author was giving on his own sDe snod mdzod and was eventually completed when the teachings were over.

Keywords: Bon po perspective; Legs bshad mdzod; Shardza Rinpoche; The Treasury of Good Sayings
