Page Title

This nonprofit organization was founded in 1992 as Ligmincha Institute in order to preserve the ancient teachings, transmissions and practices of the Bön Buddhist tradition of Tibet. As the indigenous religion of Tibet and one of the world's most ancient unbroken spiritual traditions, the Bön tradition has a rich and unique heritage. Toward achieving this goal Ligmincha aims to introduce these traditions in an authentic manner to the Western world, in such a way that they remain beneficial when integrated into modern Western culture. The organization name was changed to Ligmincha International in 2014 to reflect the expansion of the organization worldwide.

Buddha Eyes or Wisdom Eyes are often found painted on the Stupas of Tibetan Buddhism, this symbol represents the all seeing eyes of the Buddha, a symbol of the omnipresent compassion of the Bodhisattvas. The small dot depicted between the eyes represents the third eye, a symbol of spiritual awakening. The curious squiggle below the eyes is the Sanskrit numeral one, symbolizing the unity of all things.

OM  MANI  PADME  HUM

Mantra of Compassion

According to Tibetan culture, it is said that all the teachings of Buddha are contained in the mantra Om Mani Padme Hum, and that to know the phrase is to know enlightenment. Supposedly, contained in this verse is the truth of the nature of suffering and how to remove its root cause.

HUNG

The Heart Essence Syllable

Hung means indivisibility, or something which cannot be torn apart. It holds both wisdom and method and this cannot be broken or divided. It is a reminder that each one of us has purity within us, we just have to go through the paths to enlightenment to uncover it and erase all impurities from ourselves.

"OM is like the sun, but HUM is like the soil, into which the sun's rays must descend in order to awaken the dormant life."
