"Buddhahood is not somewhere other than in
the nature of our own mind" -- H.H. Menri Trizin 33rd

On September 14, 2017, at 6:35 AM, His Holiness Menri Trizin 33rd, Abbot of Menri Monastary and Spiritual Leader of the Bon Religion, left this earth at peace while meditating at his home at Menri Monastery. The news spread quickly as thousands of followers, dignitaries, and friends began their prayers and made plans for the pilgrimage to Dolanji to pay their respects and to bid him a final farewell at his funeral cremation on October 2nd. During those days and nights, chants and prayers filled the air around the elegant, beautiful monastery campus, which was elaborately decorated, festooned with flowers, and illuminated by colorful lights and candles in honor of his life and death. From 1969 when he was named Abbot of Menri Monastery, his nearly 50 years of leadership have been committed to his dream of creating a vibrant living center of Bon Religion, education, and culture by combining traditional Tibetan-style architecture and modern infrastructure to meet all the needs of a monastery and university. We at the Bon Foundation will always remember him as a Spiritual Beacon and a Master Builder. We will forever miss our teacher and this extraordinary man. May his spirit shine forever.
