This spiritual adventure is the first book to document the living tradition of Bon. This narrative features the voice and perspective of Gelek, a young Bon monk, giving it a knowledge of Bon not found in religious texts. According to the Tibetan calendar, 2002 was a holy year for pilgrimages, and in the holiest month of that year, Gelek set out from his monastery in Nepal with eleven hardy companions and photographer Thomas Kelly to travel to Kailish, a sacred mountain in western Tibet. Gelek was also on a mission to seek out the long-vanished kingdom of Zhangzhung. At the end of the journey, Gelek finds little that resembles the Bon kingdom. He comes upon crumbling ruins that have all but reverted to their native dust and earth. From this experience Gelek understands that the essence of his faith is not built on these shifting sands but on the bedrock of the change-less Bon teachings. This extraordinary trek is illustrated by 160 stunningly beautiful color photographs of the landscapes, travelers, local people, and Bon art objects. The text accompanying the images features a translation of Gelek's personal diary in which he vividly describes the arduous journey.

Another key element of its ritual, the elaborate Seal of God, has been found in texts and amulets throughout Europe.

Interest in The Sworn Book of Honorius has grown in recent years, yet no modern translations have been attemptedunt...
