Lishu Institute

Founded by Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche in 2008 and operating since 2015, Lishu Institute was established to help preserve the ancient spiritual tradition and culture of Bon. Well before the emergence of Tibetan Buddhism, Bon flourished in Tibet and other regions of early Central Asia. It came close to extinction during the Chinese Cultural Revolution, but through the extraordinary efforts of Tibetan teachers and the dedication of both Eastern and Western supporters it continues to survive today as an unbroken lineage and living spiritual tradition. Today, Lishu Institute offers longterm and short retreats on the Bön tradition. The program provides learners with an in-depth study and practice of the three main streams of teachings of Sutra, Tantra and Dzogchen.

Retreat Program 2019/2020

Lishu Institute is launching a new retreat program for 2019/2020 featuring important novelties.

Since we are aware that it is often challenging for most retreatants to find extended periods of time for retreats, we are now offering retreats for 2 months, 1 month or two weeks. Students can join the program for one or more retreats per year.

A retreat at Lishu Institute is a great opportunity for in-depth study and practice of the Bön tradition in the serene and special environment of our retreat center near Dehradun, India.

The curriculum includes one long (8 weeks), two medium (4 weeks) and one short follows:

  • 16th September to 10th November 2019 (8 weeks) – Chöd from the Bon Mother Tantra and Six Lokas from Dzogchen text Kusum Rangshar
  • 13th November to 27th November 2019 (2 weeks) – Daily Offering Rituals in the Bon tradition.
  • 20th January to 16th February 2020 (4 weeks) – Phowa and Bardo from the Bon Mother Tantra.
  • 24th February to 22 March 2020 (4 weeks) – Trek Chod and Thod Gal from the Zhang Zhung Nyen Gyud (Four Cycles of Precepts)
