Unbounded Wholeness: Bon, Dzogchen, and the Logic of the Nonconceptual

Anne Carolyn Klein and Tenzin Wangyal


This book provides a study and translation of the Authenticity of Open Awareness, a foundational text of the Bon Dzogchen tradition. This is the first time a Bon philosophical text of this scope has been translated into any Western language, and as such, it is an addition to the study of Tibetan religion and Eastern thought. The book provides introductory, explanatory, and historical material that situates the text in the context of Tibetan thought and culture.

Keywords: Authenticity of Open Awareness, Bon Dzogchen tradition, Bon, philosophy, translation, Tibetan religion, Eastern thought, Tibetan culture
