Bön Bibliography

Bön Bibliography

New Combined Version

 

compiled by DAN MARTIN

Version: June 1, 2013

 

(Note: The numbers of the individual entries are impermanent and should not be used for reference purposes.  There are a total of 1,410 entries at this point. I recommend downloading from the links just given, since there were problems with the formatting here, and the linked versions may be more up-to-date.)


It might seem mildly ironic to speak of Bön as a ‘little-known’ religion when you have right here before your eyes a ca. 175-page listing of ca. 1,500 items that have been written about it. The fact is that, although the situation is changing these days, there is not all that much of substance and a lot of repetition in a great many of these writings. The true irony is that most of Bön practice, history and literature is still unknown, breathtakingly so. At the same time you may see in some of these writings that there has been a good deal of polemic that sheds much heat and but little light, polemic still today repeated by people who ought to know better. In the interest of contemporary critical explorations of the ever-transforming public ‘image’ of Bön, everything I could find has been included here: the good, the bad and the ugly. Please take offense, where offense is warranted, at the authors and not at their bibliographer. For those in search of the most offensive, I would recommend Madame Blavatsky (of Theosophic fame) and the novels of Talbot Mundy. To find their statements about Bön all you need to do is perform an internet search for the word “Bhon” (combine it with a word like ‘Tibet’ in order to get better results). Or see the work by Harrison Forman listed below.

 

Herein is a list of works on Bön created by combining three sets of bibliographic entries: [1] those included in the general bibliography published as Part Two of Dan Martin, Unearthing Bon Treasures, Brill (Leiden 2001), pp. 287-442; [2] ‘Bön Bibliography: An Annotated List of Recent Publications,’ Revue d’Etudes Tibétaines, no. 4 (October 2003), pp. 61-77; and [3] new items that were not included in either of the two earlier works. The introduction you are reading right now is just a revised version of the introduction to no. 2. My own annotations to the items that were included in no. 1 have not been included here due to copyright restrictions. (The good news is that no. 1 has been reprinted as a more affordable paperback in Kathmandu. Not only that, but it has now been placed on Googlebooks, and is in large part accessible that way.)

 

The same general format, and the same principles of inclusion that were used in the earlier bibliographies equally apply here. The main focus is on works in English, French, German and Italian, although other languages are not excluded. I include conference papers I know about in cases where it is likely they will eventually be published, and when they are published I generally try to remove references to the conference paper. There was no intention to include Tibetan-language monographs (some exceptions are made in the cases of some very recent original compositions) for which there are, or soon will be, excellent bibliographical resources. Tibetan-language journal articles are supposed to be included, but there are only a few magazine and newspaper stories. Hardly any internet publications are listed here (in case of serious essays in internet-published journals, the most important for our purposes being Revue d’Etudes Tibétaines [Paris] and Journal of the International Association for Tibetan Studies, I more often give only the general website addresses, and not the specific URLs, having little faith that these will remain stable in coming years), although I did consult a number of web resources for bibliographical purposes.

 

There are problems in ascertaining the identities of some of the authors. It sometimes seems as if Tibetan authors are hesitant to publish twice under the exact same name, although this is a slight exaggeration. In particular, many of the literary pieces are written under ‘literary’ names. Often, since I haven’t the time or inclination to do the necessary detective work, these names are simply given as they are found in the publications.

 

Meanwhile, a new Bön journal has appeared: Bgres-po’i ’Bel-gtam, published by the Triten Norbutse Monastery in Kathmandu, Nepal. The articles and literary pieces are mostly by monks from the same monastery. Only issues 1 and 2 have been entered so far. An Anglicized version of the Tibetan journal title appears on the cover: “Dreypoi Beltam, a magazine of Triten Norbutse.”

 

This is a work perpetually in progress, and I hope that users of this bibliography will inform me of items that have mistakes or that have been overlooked and ought to be added. Thanks to Erwan Temple and others who offered further material that went into the most recent stages of revision. And thanks to Choekhortsang for kindly sending some needed issues of Bon-sgo, although some issues are still not available to me, so it is not possible to say that this periodical has been completely indexed here.


For another bibliography of Bon, although one with a little different standards for inclusion than this one and not nearly as long, see this webpage.*  This bibliography may better suit some purposes since it is divided up subject-wise.  What you see below is entirely arranged according to author's names.                                          *I am not completely sure if you can get there from here, but here is the URL:  https://collab.itc.virginia.edu/wiki/bibliographies/Bon%20Bibliography.html.

The common Tibetan word for ‘water’ is chu.

The idea is raised but then doubted that these might have to do with an ancient Zhang-zhung script. Mention is made of the seal of the Zhang-zhung king that was kept by the Menri abbots (see p. 399). The reading given here is: kha tsan pa shang li shi ra’ tsa’, interpreted to mean "King Lig-mi-rgya, Conqueror of the World."

Klasse nr. 368; Beiträge zur Kultur- und Geistesgeschichte Asiens nr. 61, Verlag der Österreichischen Akademie der Wissenschaften (Vienna 2008), in 841 pages. The first part of this major work largely develops upon the author’s previous books, with main attention paid to the surface archaeology of Western Tibet. Discussions of rock art, rock inscriptions, and the metallic objects called thogcha (thog-lcags) are included in this part. Part Two covers Tibetan textual sources that concern Western Tibet, and particularly Zhang-zhung. Part Three is what I believe is the most interesting and innovative part of the book, attempting to correlate Bon and Dunhuang textual sources on early Tibetan funerary practices with the material remains of Western Tibet. Of course, the author approaches and selects from those texts the most interesting parts from an archaeological perspective, particularly choosing those that deal in some way with material objects. It is precisely the unusualness of this focus on archaeological evidence that makes it so interesting.

This concerns the ‘five sticking deities’ or ‘five enveloping deities’ (’go-ba’i lha lnga) of Tibetan folk religion. Textual sources are given, both Bön and Buddhist.

Bön and Chos are forever divided by the narrative tropes they share, even while using them in different and often opposite ways, locked in an eternal dance of distanciation. No positive history here (although making use of the results of the same), only a cynical literary reading of the historical text (for example, Khri-srong-lde-btsan is but a placeholder in culturally sustained and socio-politically motivated arguments, while his significance as a historical influence in his own times is probably not knowable, in any case not part of the interest of this article...).

Narrative analysis, performed in imitation of the style of Hayden White, of Bön-Chö (bon chos) historical accounts reveals that, over the centuries, they have been locked in a ‘dialog,’ or even, what is something much less, empty echoes without any substantial meanings to call their own. Both sides disappear in a puff of smoke, cancel each other out, and the [post-?]modern historian finally comes clear (in the Scientological sense). No one else would seem to be the better for it. Hayden White does acknowledge that the Shoah took place, and that its history is knowable. He says, “The idea that the Holocaust never happened is simply absurd.” See Hayden White, The Public Relevance of Historical Studies: A Reply to Dirk Moses, History and Theory, vol. 44 (October 2005), pp. 333-338. The same would apply to other events in human history, I would maintain.

On the shorter, one-volume biography of Lord Shenrab, entitled Lha-yi Bon Mdo ’Dus-pa Rin-po-che’i Rgyud (better known by its abbreviated title Mdo-’dus), in 108 fols.

He was able to obtain two different versions of the Mdo-’dus, one of them from the 1st edition of the Bön Kanjur, the other borrowed from a doctor in Nag-chu-kha named A-rgya (he argues that this ms. must be about 800 years old or older). He also announces the existence of a fourth biography of Lord Shenrab beyond the three generally known. Published (together with the Mdo-’dus) in the first edition of the Bön Kanjur, vol. 29 (sa), it has the title ’Dus-pa Rin-po-che’i Rgyud Dri-ma-med-pa Rtsa-ba’i Mdo Sangs-rgyas-kyi Rnam-thar Rin-chen ’Phreng-ba, with 15 chapters and 187 folios.

This article uncovers the reasons for the myth, propagated in some popular books (by Anne Fadiman and by Keith Quincy), that there was an 18th-century Hmong king named Sonom. In fact, this ‘Sonom’ is Bsod-nams, and he was a prince of Rgyal-mo-rong, not a king of the Hmong. He was king of Rab-brtan at the close of the second Jinchuan expedition. He was then taken to Peking and publicly executed in the most gruesome fashion.

FORMAN, HARRISON (1904-1978)

 

427.     I See the King of Hell, Harper’s Magazine (December 1934), pp. 14-25. This apparently also forms a chapter in his book, Through Forbidden Tibet: An Adventure into the Unknown, Jarrolds (London 1936), the first edition in 288 pages. It seems this article was reprinted in the Reader’s Digest of December 1937, although I have not checked this. More recently it has been reprinted as Chapter 12 of a book by Doug Allen entitled Gamblers with Fate that I located via Googlebooks on the internet; the book was published under the label of of fiction in 2008. This piece tells the story of the author’s alleged participation in a “Bonist” ritual. His works were panned at the time by much more reliable Tibetanists like Li An-che and by B. Miller, as having “an overdeveloped sense of the dramatic and an underdeveloped devotion to facts.” This holds true of this piece, which certainly doesn’t convey any authentic knowledge about Bön rituals (ridiculously enough, he has these Bön priests chanting “Yamantaka, Yamantaka”). Here is a quote: “He and his fellows were followers of Bonism, a form of paganism which predates Buddhism in Tibet. The lamas of Buddhism intercede between the laymen and the benignant deities; the Nukhwas of Bonism propitiate the evil ones. It was the materializing of these evil spirits that I had come to see.” This article is still cited by Evangelical Christian polemicists to prove the ‘evil demonic’ nature of Tibetan religion in general. By the way, the word Nukhwa is probably a deformation of Ngakpa (Sngags-pa, Sanskrit Mantrin), a word often used for specialists in popular magic, like weathermaking. A quote from page 151 of Forman’s book confirms this at least on a superficial level based on hair styles: “There were only about fifty Nukhwas in residence. They wore the layman sheepskin cloaks in contrast to the red homespun robes of the Buddhist lamas. But their long hair, twisted and coiled atop their heads like snakes, distinguished them from the laity.” This is not to ignore Forman’s basic categorical mistake in confusing Bön and Ngakpas (the latter are most likely to be Nyingmapas, not Bönpos).

The unknown language here written in Tibetan script may or may not have something to do with Zhang-zhung. The author gives some examples of Zhang-zhung book titles at the end of the article. The use of several words that, in Tibetan, are of a medicinal character, argues for the idea that the text is about medicine.

591.       Imagining Matriarchy: ‘Kingdoms of Women’ in T’ang China. Journal of the American Oriental Society, vol. 116, no. 2 (1996), pp. 220-229. At pp. 223-224, among a number of areas claimed in Chinese sources to be ‘Kingdoms of Women’ (nüguo), is the Tibetan area known in T’ang chronicles as Su-p’i, identified with Tibetan Sum-pa. Sum-pa, while located in northeastern Tibet, was contemporary with the Zhang-zhung empire, and is sometimes included within it (or as a vassal state). It was known to the Chinese primarily because it sent tribute missions to China between the years 587 and 742. In general, Jay seems to be saying that (with possible exception of the Sum-pa case, which could have been genuinely matriarchal), the Kingdom of Women was essentially an imaginative projection of patriarchal fear of female power (and not really a feminist utopia after all).

Its author, Drung-mu-ha-ra (14th century), is placed in dialogue with Georges Battaile (1897-1962). The Zhang-zhung name Drung-mu-ha-ra ought to translate as the Tibetan name G.yung-drung-ye-shes. His disciple was Tsu-ra ’Od-zer-rgyal-mtshan, and the latter’s disciple was the wellknown Blo-ldan-snying-po (b. 1360). It therefore seems likely that the author is none other than Go-lde ’Phags-pa G.yung-drung-ye-shes (b. 1215), so it may belong to th 13th rather than the 14th century.

Toni Huber has also written on this same general area. This paper is concerned with the various interests that converge on a ‘Tibetan’ and traditionally Bön holy place. These interests include tourism, business, governmental, global, local, Daoist, Buddhist, Bön, Chinese, Tibetan and still others. Shar Dung-ri (Eastern Conch Mountain) and Gser-mtsho (Golden Lakes, here spelled Sertsuo) are in the place known in Chinese as Huanglong (Yellow Dragon). One nearby Bön monastery called Rin-spungs (the full name is Rin-spungs-bkra-shis-smin-grol-gling) has recently begun to gain more influence. In 2003, in a secret deal, a new official contracted two of the temples out to a business from Chengdu. The business controlled the sales agents who run the temples, sell incense, collect donations, run photo booths etc. Also interesting is how UNESCO contributes to alienating the site from traditional religious practices by forbidding many of them on ecological grounds. Of course, what actually most threatens the environment is just the sheer number of tourists who have started visiting in recent years, in large part precisely because it has been declared a UNESCO natural heritage site. Clearly, heritage preservation efforts and eco-tourism may be destructive of religious traditions as well as the natural beauty they would seem to aim to protect.

A paper given at the international seminar, “Editions, éditions: l’écrit au Tibet, évolution et devenir” (Paris, May 29-31, 2008). A similar paper was given earlier in the year in Oxford. A large and quite old chorten was being restored in 2007, and books were found inside. The person in charge of the restoration who actually found the manuscripts was Glang-ru Nor-bu-tshe-ring, who co-authored a book with Pa-tshab Pa-sangs-dbang-’dus, Gtam-shul Dga’-thang ’Bum-pa-che-nas Gsar-du Rnyed-pa’i Bon-gyi Gna’-dpe Bdams-bsgrigs, Bod-ljongs Bod-yig Dpe-rnying Dpe-skrun-khang (Lhasa 2008). Unfortunately no record was kept of precisely where inside the chorten these Bön texts were found (their location would shed light on why they were placed there). This bundle of manuscripts contains three ritual texts and one medical. Evidently the chorten is associated with the death of Nyang-ral Nyi-ma-’od-zer and dates from that time. That means the texts are likely to be 12th century or so. “Basang Wangdui” [i.e. Pa-sang-dbang-’dus], On the Scientific Method of Ancient Tibetan Manuscripts and the Newly Discovered Ancient Bon Manuscripts, A paper given at the Beijing Seminar on Tibetan Society, China Tibetology Research Center (Beijing, October 13-17, 2008).

708.      Geographical Notice of Tibet. Journal of the Royal Asiatic Society of Bengal, vol. 1 (1832), pp. 121-127. This article contains a brief passage that may be significant, if only for its relative age, for studying the history of western knowledge about Bön. The passage, on p. 124, reads: “In K’ham-yul, those called Pon or Bon, holding still the ancient religion of Tibet, are very numerous. They have also their literature, religious order, several monasteries, and kill several animals, great and small cattle, for sacrifice : they have many superstitious rites.” The same author included an entry for Bon in his 1834 dictionary of the Tibetan language (p. 94): “the Pon religion : this was the ancient religion of Tibet, and was predominant till the ninth century of our aera, when Buddhism took its place. There are still many of this sect in Lower Tibet, and they also have many books containing their doctrine.” There is also an extremely brief entry for “Gshen-rabs” (p. 36).
