The Bön Project
In conformity with its holistic approach to research, the Kalpa Group’s engagement with Bon has proceeded along a number of clearly-defined but intersecting lines.
Each of the different project components is potentially a “stand-alone” area of research or other activity, but Kalpa’s philosophy is that a multidisciplinary perspective produces
a whole that is more than the sum of its parts, and provides insights that would not be possible with a more conventional, monolineal approach. All the sub-projects were conceived, designed and executed in close cooperation with the communities they are intended to serve, and in consultation or actual collaboration with the most senior and highly-revered
figures of the Bon religion itself.
