Olmo Ling is a religious educational nonprofit organization dedicated to preserving the ancient teachings of the Bon tradition of Tibet and making them available and accessible to lay practitioners.
The Center offers weekly meditation practice and teachings, prayers, meditation instruction, and private interviews, as well as a study program that includes regular retreats with Tempa Dukte Lama and visiting lamas, rinpoches, and geshes of the Bon tradition.
Our weekly program offers a space of refuge, a space where people can support each other in their practice and where we can reconnect with our innate pure nature and good heart.
Olmo Ling Publications supports the study program and preserves the Bon traditions for current and future practitioners by publishing new texts on, as well as fresh commentary and translations of, essential Bon practices.
Bon Social Action
The Bon spiritual teachings of compassion and liberation from suffering become alive when we express them through our actions. Olmo Ling offers special training practices in the area of healing and programs in compassionate care and spiritual support for the dying.
We are currently working to establish a Project on Being with Dying, a Children and Teen Project, and a Prison Project. The Project on Being with Dying offers training programs in compassionate care for working with the dying along with spiritual help and support for the dying. The Olmo Ling Prison Project offers prisoners guided meditation instruction in ways to transform their difficulties. These training programs enable people who wish to actively help others to become a resource for them through social action inspired by the Bon teachings.
