There were energetic fireworks when I met Nyima Dakpa Rinpoche. So I thought I would follow his teachings.
But still I have a Rime attitude to Dharma.
Tashi delek K,
Thanks for the reply.
Guess you came not there for the fireworks and knew Geshela some time before.
To sympathize with Rime is good.
To be a Non sectarian is ok , like in Rime.
But in Rime is also explained that one can follow everything if we don`t mix it up.
If one follows another Tradition then one can look for similarities and not to make a Tradition similar, which is impossible anyway.
Similarities which i found in Bön and Vajrayana
Compassion and Wisdom
6 Yogas similarities like dream Yoga etc.
Similar Adi Buddha
Tantra but with different names and Lineage
Sutra with many similarities like Sangye Menla
Monks and Vinaya but stemming from different Buddhas
Sure i know in Vajrayana Om Ah Hung but nevertheless say it in Bön sometimes as A Om Hung
With this Om Ah Hung etc and A Om Hung i have until now difficulties to separate them because it is deep rooted Om A Hung.
So with Bön , i had no problems and for sure not with the Dzogchen step on top of Chag Gya Chenpo.
Hope that your way in Bön will be prosperous and you have a good Master. He was one of the beloved ones of the Gyalwa Menri Trizin Rinpoche, a Tashi Menri Geshela. For him and other Bönpos, is Ngöndro important.
