Join us for this rare opportunity to receive teachings and blessings from His Holiness 34th Menri Trizin, the worldwide spiritual head of Bon and 34th Abbot of Menri Monastery. Tempa Lama encourages all his students to attend!

We are most grateful that His Holiness 34th Menri Trizin Lungtok Dawa Dhargye Rinpoche has generously offered to give this special teaching in support of the Olmo Ling Temple Capital Campaign – our ongoing efforts to raise the funds for buying a building and establishing a permanent temple and sacred Bon refuge in Pittsburgh under the guidance of Tempa Dukte Lama.

His Holiness will give the transmission of the Three Heart Mantras of Bon together with a teaching on this profound practice and an explanation of its benefits. The Three Heart Mantras of Sa Le Od, Ma Tri, and Du Tri Su are the heart essence of the teachings of Tonpa Shenrab, the Awakened One who founded the Bon tradition. Tonpa Shenrab taught these mantras to give people a practice that has the power to liberate simply by hearing or reciting it, seeing or touching it, or contemplating it.

Sa Le Od is the mantra of the Bon Ku, the truth body. It helps the practitioner gain clarity of mind and clear obstacles towards omniscience. Ma Tri is the mantra of Dzog Ku, the enjoyment body. The mantra has the power to clear the karmic conditioning that causes us to be reborn in the six realms of cyclic existence. Du Tri Su is the mantra of Trul Ku, the emanation body. It helps clear obstacles and the conditions of the lower realms. It supports healing and guides the souls of the deceased to help them find peace and wellbeing.


His Holiness 34th Menri Trizin Lungtok Dawa Dhargye Rinpoche

His Holiness 34th Menri Trizin Lungtok Dawa Dhargye Rinpoche is the worldwide spiritual head of Bon and the 34th abbot of Menri Monastery, the mother monastery of Bon in India. His Holiness was selected as the 34th Menri Trizin on January 1, 2018, following a sacred prayer ritual over several days with lamas, monks, and nuns from across Asia.

His Holiness 34th Menri Trizin Rinpoche was born on November 29, 1972, in Amdo, Tibet. At age 17 he became a monk at Gamal Monastery in Amdo, and at age 18 he joined the Bon Dialectic School of Gamal Monastery. He received his Geshe (doctor of Philosophy) degree from Gamal Monastery at age 24. In 1994, he was able to take the 250 vows of a fully ordained monk from the 33rd Menri Trizin, who gave him the name Dawa Dargyal Wangpo. Thus the 34th Abbot was named Dawa (moon), following after the 33rd Abbot, named Nyima (sun) – forming an auspicious connection like the moon proceeding in the path of the sun.

In 1997, His Holiness entered Menri Monastery in India, where he received his second geshe degree, in 2012. He served the 33rd Menri Trizin, His Holiness Lungtok Tenpai Nyima Rinpoche, for many years and held several important roles in the monastery, most recently as general secretary (administrator) of the Yungdrung Bon Monastic Center Society at Menri. In February 2018, Bonpos worldwide joined in celebrating the selection of the 34th Menri Trizin at Menri Monastery. On September 6, 2018, a formal grand enthronement ceremony took place at Menri.

In 2019, Olmo Ling had the great honor of hosting teachings with His Holiness. Read more about this very special visit here (post-event newsletter), here (Public Talk) and here (Teaching on the Loving Mother of Wisdom).

The extended bio of His Holiness is available on the website of the Yungdrung Bon Monastic Center here.
