Hi,

I have been studying Buddhism for some time now,
Both Theravada and Mahayana, mainly the four schools
of Tibetan Buddhism. I am curious how Americans
are able to relate to the influences that Bon has
had on Tibetan Buddhism? From what I have read The
Buddha never spoke of many of aspects that are specific
in Tibetan Buddhism. Don't get me wrong, I feel that
His Holiness The Dalai Lama is a great teacher and
one of the great figures of this century.

Regards,
Bill
