BON: Mustang to Menri explores the challenges of Asonam’s journey as a young boy as he travels with his Lama from his village, in the ancient kingdom of Mustang, (Nepal), to Menri Monastery (Northern India). He later returns to Mustang as an educated Geshe determined to help his people by supporting the preservation of their cultural heritage and economic sustainability. His story is interwoven with ancient Bön and life at Menri Monastery. With the blessings of His Holiness Lungtok Tenpai Nyima, the 33rd Abbot of Menri Monastery, this film communicates Bön’s unique place in Tibetan history and illuminates how and why the work that monks, lamas and Geshes do is vitally important in our current times. Filmed on location in Mustang, Nepal and Menri Monastery, Northern India, the story illuminates the interconnectedness of education, spiritual dedication and persistence.
