(Bon Deity)YAR-LHA-SHAM-PO

Pronunciation : Coming soon ...

Royal god of Yar-lha-sham-po mountain and husband of the primary goddess Gnam-smanthog-gi-bu-yug. He stomped the yard at the Yar-Lung Valley, cradle of the Tibetan People.

When Buddhism began to creep into Tibet the royal family took offence. When Pad-ma-vdyung-gna tried to creep into Tibet Yar-lha-sham-po took offence too. And rightly so. He was there first and wasn't going to be nudged aside by any god.

Standing on lam-vphrang road like the proverbial no entry sign — smashing rocks, throwing trees and flooding temples in a brutal show of power — Yar-lha-sham-po made it pretty obvious that Buddhism was not welcome there. The supreme Tibetan god who rules all others may have won this particular battle but as Bon temples are now few and scattered far and wide you don't need me to tell you who won the war.

Yar-Lha-Sham-Po is quite easy to spot... he's the giant white Yak blowing snowstorms from his nostrils, but he isn't averse to taking the form of a mortal for dreamy house calls, and many a woman has woken up pregnant after a nightime visitation from a strange red man.
