Olmo Ling is a religious educational non-profit organization dedicated to preserving the ancient teachings of the Bon tradition of Tibet and making them available and accessible to lay practitioners. The Center offers weekly meditation practice and teachings, prayers, meditation instruction and private interviews, and a study program that includes regular retreats with Tempa Dukte Lama and visiting lamas of the Bon tradition. A Refuge for Practitioners Our weekly program offers a space of refuge; a space where people can support each other in their practice and where we can reconnect with our innate pure nature and good heart. Bon Studies Olmo Ling’s study program offers the Bon teachings through retreats and workshops on a variety of topics for practitioners of all ages. In order to preserve the Bon traditions for current and future practitioners, the Center publishes new and commentary texts and translations of essential Bon practices. Bon Social Action The Bon spiritual teachings of compassion and liberation from suffering become alive when we express them through our actions. Olmo Ling offers special training practices in the area of healing and programs in compassionate care and spiritual support for the dying. We are currently working to establish a Project on Being with Dying, a Children and Teen Project, and a Prison Project. The Project on Being with Dying offers training programs in compassionate care for working with the dying along with spiritual help and support for the dying. The Olmo Ling Prison Project offers prisoners guided meditation instruction in ways to transform their difficulties. These training programs enable people who wish to actively help others to become a resource for them through social action inspired by the Bon teachings

Please join us to experience the healing power of the Chang Bu Gyatsa prayer ritual. Bon lamas Geshe Yangton Lama Tashi Gyaltsen and Tempa Dukte Lama will perform this special healing prayer for the benefit of our community. The Chang Bu Gyatsa prayer ritual opens the possibility of deep healing of our body, mind, and soul. The ritual has the power to clear karmic obscurations that restrict our happiness, prosperity, health and longevity, or that lead to misfortune and difficulties in our family relationships.
We human beings are constantly affected by changes in our lives, difficult relationships, illness, pain and suffering. If we cannot find a way to deal with these difficulties, we may develop fear and anxiety. The Chang Bu Gyatsa ritual prayer opens up the possibility of clearing the underlying karma so that we may experience happiness and healing. It can heal difficult physical or mental conditions that may not respond to medical treatment as expected. Sometimes our karmic conditions cause a hindrance to treatment or force us to make wrong choices that may worsen our situation instead of leading to healing. In such cases the power of ritual prayer can help find balance and open the way to new possibilities of healing, joy, and prosperity. Moreover, the Chang Bu Gyatsa ritual supports us in reconnecting with our true nature of purity and joy.
