Chapter Summary

This section presents a list of technical words, texts, person names and deities, and place names that occur in the book titled Enlightened Rainbows: the life and works of Shardza Tashi Gyeltsen. Shar rdza Rin po che (hereafter Shardza Rinpoche) is one of the most famous Bon po masters of the late 19th century and early 20th century. He is of course particularly well-known because of his realization of the Rainbow Body which he manifested at the end of his life in 1934. But he was not only a fully accomplished practitioner of rDzogs chen and Tantras-which would appear to be much sufficient in itself: he was also a highly talented scholar whose expertise embraced all the fields of Bon spiritual knowledge. His works have consequently greatly influenced most of the modern masters of Bon, even if some voices appear here and there in a discordant tone.

Keywords: Bon spiritual knowledge; Shardza Rinpoche; Shardza Tashi Gyeltsen
