Unearthing Bon Treasures: Life and Contested Legacy of a Tibetan Scripture Revealer with a General Bibliography of Bon Author:Dan Martin
The subject for this study is the terton Gshen-chen Klu-dga, a crucial figure in the development of Bon as an organised religion after the eleventh century. It includes an exhaustive annotated bibliography of previous works about Bon. Here for the first time he is situated in the context of what was happening in Buddhism during this period. By scrutinizing his life and terma, or treasures, that were to be of much controversy in later ages, the author sheds light on the mechanism of Tibetan polemical tradition and the ways in which sectarianism accords itself legitimacy by resurrecting ancient arguments in a subtly distorted manner.
