Words from

H.H. the 14th Dalai Lama

"Bon is considered to be Tibet's oldest spiritual tradition and, as the indigenous source of Tibetan culture, Bon played a significant role in shaping Tibet's unique identity. Consequently I have often stressed the importance of preserving this tradition."

To Whom It May Concern:

We are pleased to learn that the Lishu Institute in Dehradun District has been established to preserve and promote the Bon Tradition of Tibetan Buddhist Culture.

It is in exile that we have been successful to a large extent in restoring and preserving our cultural heritage. We therefore offer our support to the efforts of the Institute to preserve and promote Bon Buddhist cultural heritage, and encourage others to help in whatever way they can.
