Remarkable question.
Why are you interested in Bön female masters ?


As far as i know , not.
But it is posssible, maybe other Bönpos can know that.

Westerners prefer female teachers I bet.

The four means of converting beings to the Dharma are generosity (which itself as four aspects: giving material gifts, conferring fearlessness, loving kindness and teaching Dharma), pleasant speech, conduct and setting an example.

Don't know... Maybe different point of view of a khandro than of a male master.

Thank you for the question.
I am curious too, as there are many women practitioners in the west. I would imagine that time will tell as their awakening and enlightment increases.

Tashi delek K,

Welcome aboard here as a new DW member ! :twothumbsup:

Well a female Master explains Bön Dharma and a male Master explains Dharma, in explaining Dharma, there would be a difference , everybody explains Dharma according different ways, but the meaning would / must be the same.

Sure every Master (male / female), can explain Dharma according their way of understanding or their personal view, and that would be the interesting thing about teachings of every Master regarding the same topic.

They can explain Dharma, all different but that is not based on female or male.

IMO there is no special thing happening if a male or female teacher / Master is explaining Dharma.
The result for the students , should be a correct understanding of the discussed / explained topic.

KY.
