The origins of Zhag-Zhung and Tibetan calligraphy
According to Bon history, the original Tibetan alphabet was fashioned upon the ancient Zhang-Zhung script before the reign of the second Tibetan king. During the 7th century, Zhang Zhung script and Bon became almost extinct. But many practitioners hid Zhang Zhung texts at that time that were later revealed by Tertonpas. In Northern Tibet, one of the lamas who kept alive the original form of Zhang Zhung script is Bongya Rinpoche. Geshe Chaphur Rinpoche has learnt the art of Zhang Zhung script from Bongya Rinpoche for three years. Geshe la will explain and show you the art of Zhang Zhung and Tibetan calligraphy.
