The Himalayas of Nepal - Thomas L. Kelly

Dhaulagiri Himal- Situated in the Kali Gandaki region of western Nepal is the bonpo village of Lubra. Before the settlement was established, in the twelfth century, the great Dzogchen master Yangton Trashi Gyaltsen took up residence in a nearby cave. Through his meditation he was able to subdue the local demons and serpent spirits. Inside the main village is a very old walnut tree which is believed to have sprung up after Yangton Trashi Gyaltsen put a needle in the ground to see whether the site was propitious for the establishment of a Bon community.
