Dear readers,

voilá the Speech of Delight, a new online magazine of Shenten Dargye Ling and its community which comes in replacement of the identically titled newsletter that our sangha used to have in the past. Welcome to its site! We opted for this format because we think it will allow us to deliver you interesting stories more fluently and also be more interactive.

Speech of Delight will focus on Shenten but we will also include stories of sangha members and their activities, as well as report about events and projects of Triten Norbutse Monastery, the home of the founder of Shenten Dargye Ling, our beloved teacher His Excellence Yongdzin Tenzin Namdak Rinpoche.

We would also like to disclose richness of bon and its different aspects to the public of both practitioners and readers who are just keen to know more about this spiritual tradition. We would like also to inform you about new publications and audiovideo material related to Yungdrung Bon.

Speech of Delight in its new coat has received blessings and encouragement from our precious teachers and leaders  of our community Khenchen Tenpa Yungdrung Rinpoche and Khenpo Gelek Jinpa. They also agreed, together with Wolfgang Reuter, who is a member of Shenten Dargye Ling Association, to sit on the Editorial board of the magazine.

We hope that you will enjoy reading it. We plan to add new content regularly and develop it gradually, with your help.  Let us know your feedback and suggestions!
