Yungdrung Bon is the pre-Buddhist spiritual tradition of Tibet. In fact, it was the original religion of Tibet band Tibetan people. Yungdrung Bon was taught by Buddha Tonpa Sherab in Wol-mo Loong-Ring (Shambala). The Buddhas history can be traced back to over 18,000 years. The Buddha was born as prince, married and had family. During his life time, he paid a visit to Tibet direct from Wol-mo Loong-ring via Gang Wal-so Rawa (Mount Wal-so Ra-wa). During that visit, the Buddha and his entourage found Tibet a barren land. He taught indigenous people there some gyu-yi Bon (causal Bon) aspect of teachings such as healing arts, prayer flag hoisting and medicinal plants fumigation etc. He however, prophesied that his emanation will come to the land and introduce dre-bui Bon (resultant Bon) teachings.

Later, the first King of Tibet Nya-tri Tsed-po, particularly his son Mutri Tsed-po the second King of Tibet took the task of importing Yungdrung Bon teaching from the neighbouring country Zhang Zhung. According to sources, 108 Zhang Zhung scholars were entrusted to translate Yungdrung Bon teaching from Zhang Zhung langauge into Tibetan language. That is how Yungdrung Bon was imported into Tibet by these kings.

Beginning from 8th, century, Tibetans also imported Dharma from India. Since then, Tibet had two major religious traditions; Youngdrung Bon and Dharma who lived side by side. Yungdrung Bon has five sub-schools and Buddhist with four sub-schools under their umbrella respectively. Both the traditions emphasise on generating indiscriminate love and compassion and have similar views on the path. However, there are historical and geographical differences etc.
