Geshe Degree for Bön Nuns

Post by kalden yungdrung » Sat Oct 13, 2018 8:54 am

Tashi delek,

A special day / event in the world of Bön. :namaste:

Due to the efforts of His Holiness the late Gyalwa 33rd Menri Trizin Rinpoche , nuns can obtain in the world of Bön a Geshe degree.
I am happy that there is in Bön no more discrimination between Nuns and Monks, both can have equal emancipation, in one word GREAT !

Below we can watch the Geshe ceremony of the nuns of mDomed Khyungmo (female Garuda) Bön Monastery in Tibet.

Tashi delek,

Seems to be that Bön is the first Spiritual Tibetan Tradition who made this dream for Nuns a reality.
Guess the other Spirtual Tibetan Traditions will follow this example.

No discrimination between the spiritual abilities /emancipation :twothumbsup: between women and men !

It was due to the efforts of the Late Gyalwa His Holiness the 33rd Menri Trizin Rinpoche, that this became reality. :namaste:

Not sure that Bön is the first Tibetan Tradition to open up the Geshe Degree to women. See he link below from 2016:

Tashi delek,

Sorry, did not know the Drepung Geshemas from 2016.
Am not so well informed about Gelug.

That means they started with the Geshe Program 2 years earlier than the Bönpo Geshemas.
Any way your news is also great in the world of the Tibetan Spiritual Traditions and lets hope that the other Tibetan Spiritual Traditions will follow these examples, or they too have already realized the Geshema program , who knows ?

Best wishes.
