Prof. em. Dr. Per Kværne, University of Oslo:

Mount Kailāśa in the Bön religion

 

Mount Kailāśa has an important place in Hindu mythology and in both Hindu and Buddhist cosmology, and is a major pilgrimage goal for Tibetan Buddhists. In the Bön religion, too, it plays a crucial role, being associated with the Enlightened Teacher of Bön, Tönpa Shenrap, and the historical realm of Zhangzhung. It is also an important pilgrimage site for adherents of the Bön religion. In addition, it has certain unique features in Bön sources, which will be discussed in the presentation.

 

Per Kværne obtained MA in Sanskrit at the University of Oslo in 1970 and the Dr. philos. degree in 1974 (A Study of the Caryāgīti) at the same university. From 1975 to 2007, he was professor of History of Religions and Tibetan Studies at the University of Oslo; he is now professor emeritus. His research has been focused on Tibetan studies, especially the post-11th century Bön religion.
