Geshe Tenzin Drukdak

Geshe Tenzin Drukdak is a very knowledgeable and beloved Bon lama, doctor and healer who has studied Tibetan medicine from the age of 12 with teachers of Tibetan medicine including Darma Gyaltsen. Geshe-la received his Geshe degree from the Bon Dialectic School at Menri, India in 1994. Geshe-la is spearheading several very large Bon projects in Tibet. These include the translation of the Bon Canon into Chinese, regular conferences with representatives of the ca 360 Bon monasteries in Tibet, a web portal about the Bon tradition in Tibetan, Chinese and soon also English, and efforts to recover as much knowledge as possible about the original Tibetan Bon culture and civilization of Zhang Zhung.

Since 2001, Geshe-la has served as the Khenpo of the new Bon Dialectic School at Togden Monastery in Amdo, Tibet. Following H.H.’ vision, Geshe-la wants to operate this school in the same way as the Dialectic School at Menri with a 13-year course of study toward a Geshe degree. Geshe-la has worked extensively as an editor and is author of the book “Introduction of Yungdrung Bon for Newcomers” (in Tibetan, with translation into Chinese). He is currently working on an encyclopedia of Bon terminology and a Zhang Zhung-Tibetan dictionary. Geshe-la teaches worldwide, in Tibet, China and the West, with a deep intention to benefit people of all backgrounds.
