The ngondro teachings are the doorway through which you may enter the vast and profound Bon Buddhist path. A set of nine foundational or preliminary practices, the ngondro provides a solid foundation of understanding and experience upon which a strong spiritual life develops. It is often described as a friend that accompanies you throughout your spiritual life. The nine practices in the Bon ngondro are:

• Opening Your Heart
• Meditation on Impermanence
• Admitting Your Misdeeds
• Bodhicitta — Generating the Mind of Enlightenment
• Taking Refuge
• Offering the Mandala
• Purification Through Mantra
• Offering Your Body
• Guru Yoga

The more you devote yourself to these practices that tame, purify and perfect your body, speech and mind — and the more you become familiar with the experiences that these practices bring — the more you will find spiritual practice grounded within you.

Geshe Yungdrung Gyatso was born in the Dolpo region in Nepal in 1980. He met his teacher, His Eminence Yongdzin Tenzin Namdak at the age of 10 and has been learning Sutra, Tantra and Dzogchen in the Triten Norbutse monastery in Kathmandu since that time. He attained the Geshe title in 2008 (the highest title in the monastic education). After graduation, he went into special retreat under the supervision of his teachers. Additionally, he worked as a Medical School director and an editor of the Triten Norbutse magazine “Drepoi Beltam”. He also works on the reconstruction of the Tashi Namgyal monastery in his home region of Dolpo. Geshe visited Poland in 2013, giving teachings in Warsaw, Sopot, Gdańsk and Kraków.
