Abstract

This paper examines the claim that Tibet's Bon religion came from Persia. By looking at traditional and scholarly approaches to the history of Bon, I looked for evidence of Persian influence. I also compared certain aspects Zoroastrianism and other Persian religions to both Tibet's ancient religion as well as the Bon religion of today. From this study, I conclude that there is no substantial evidence to suggest that the Bon religion came from Persia.
