1) The Project

This project will protect, preserve and share the world’s largest collection of wisdom on the nature of mind. This precious knowledge base has been developed and perfected by Bon and Buddhist Indo-Tibetan meditation practitioners during the last 18,000 years but is now at great risk of being lost within its original setting.

The Pointing Out the Great Way Foundation will provide the necessary support and infrastructure to preserve and sustain this critical knowledge by revitalizing these indigenous Tibetan teachings and practices in Nepal but will also be sharing these critical teachings with the world at large. The first phase of our project consists of creating:

• A main temple and living space for 100 monks with a dormitory and school for 100 children;

• A cultural and spiritual center supporting the practices and beliefs of the local community;

• A source of social and economic sustainability for the region.

A second phase of the project will focus on an expanded living space for the nuns and a guest house so that practitioners living outside of the area can practice directly with advanced practitioners, monks and nuns.

2) Why the teachings are important

These teachings contain the largest collection of wisdom on the nature of the mind that we have on this planet but have not been widely taught in the West. At a time when the Western World is facing an epidemic of mental health problems, elevated stress and anxiety, these traditions give us valuable tools and techniques to unlock a deeper understanding and experience of how the mind works and how to create happier and healthier patterns in thought and behavior.

These techniques move way beyond usual contemplation and mindfulness and have the ability to change the consciousness of anyone practicing them. The result is improved clarity of your mind, higher energy and a peacefulness that pervades through the work you do in your life. The Indo-Tibetan traditions also provide very practical tools to help optimize our lives.

Benefits of an awakened mind

Dan Brown – Nepal, 17th april 2018

The gifts from the East are the precious teachings of the Bon and Buddhist indo-Tibetan lineages, at risk of dying out in their places of origin. >>

The scientific evidence

Neural Correlates of Awakened Awareness

A recent study of the mental correlates of 30 western practitioners of the Bonpo Teachings sitting in progressively deeper states of awareness dramatically confirmed the gamma wave signature of the state of awakened awareness.>>

3) The Foundation

The Pointing Out the Great Way (POGW) Foundation operates solely on the basis of volunteer work with zero overhead.

In order to import funds to Nepal and to secure the legal ownership of the Spiritual Campus on Jomson, POGW has established a separate non-profit organization in Nepal. While the US-based organization is focused on raising funds and facilitating Western access to the teachings, the Nepali organization is responsible for managing the construction of the Spiritual Campus in Jomson and for the revitalization of cultural and spiritual practices within the local community.

Why we are here

The Pointing Out the Great Way Foundation is inspired by the work and vision of Daniel Brown, Ph.D. Our mission is to promote an exchange of gifts between East and West. >>
