Zhang Zhung or Zhangzhung (also Shangshung or Xiangxiong), is written according to the transliteration of the Tibetan word ཞང་ཞུང་. It is the kingdom and ancient culture of western and northwestern Tibet.The capital city, Kyunglong, is located on the edge of Lake Tangra Yumcoin, in today’s Ali region. The ancient Zhangzhung Kingdom created extremely high civilizations. It not only formed its own unique Zhangzhung characters, but also the birthplace of the Yungdrung Bon religion. Yungdrung Bon culture is actually equivalent to Zhangzhung culture. Zhangzhung culture predates the Tibetan Buddhist culture in Tibet and is the source of all Tibetan culture.
Culture and Religion of Zhangzhung
Zhangzhung culture is the traditional culture of the Tibetan people and also known as the foundation culture of Tibet. The traces of ancient Zhangzhung culture run through all aspects of Tibet, from industries to lives and from folk customs to beliefs. Religious activities such as offering sacrifices to mountain gods and holy mountains kora all originated from Zhangzhung culture. Tibetan script originated from the Zhangzhung script. Ancient Zhangzhung Buddha dharma is the oldest native Buddha dharma in Tibet and the essence of Zhangzhung culture. The prince of Zhangzhung, Shenrap Miwo, in order to save sentient beings, compassionately preached Yungdrung Bon. The Buddha's koan is represented with 卍, which is called "Yungdrung" in Tibetan. "Yung" is a symbol of harmony and eternity, which is the true meaning of the Buddha drama. "Drung" means carnal deathlessness. Long before Indian Buddhism was introduced into Tibet, the ancient Zhangzhung Buddha dharma - Yungdrung Bon religion had been widely spread in the snowy plateau, and it was the most important spiritual belief of the Tibetan people. “Great Perfection” is not only the core of the ancient Buddha dharma but also the essence of all spiritual civilization and traditional culture in Tibet. It is also the wisdom and essence of civilization accumulated by the people who live on the mysterious land of the Qinghai-Tibet plateau.
The Influence of Zhangzhung Culture
Both ancient Zhangzhung cultures and religions have had a great influence on later generations. The well known Mount Kailash kora, worshiping the holy lake, kowtow, scattering Longda, hanging prayer flags, dispelling evil spirits with fire and smoke, Mani stones, Torma, Butter sculpture, Vajra knot, as well as Tibetan language, Tibetan Guozhuang dance, Thangka paintings, etc. are derived from the ancient Zhangzhung culture. The ancient Zhangzhung culture even influenced the cultures of many other surrounding countries and nations.
Kunlun Mountains, Mount Kailash and Rainbow Body
Most of the references made confirming the existence of the Rainbow Body have been connected to the eastern philosophies and esoteric spiritual factions that source from ancient Tibetan Buddhist teachings that originated from the Melchizedeks that were originally living in the Lop Nur and Tibetan mountainous regions. There are many pyramidal shaped mountains of various sizes in this region, which may be actual remnants of humanity’s lost advanced civilization in which our ancestors understood how to harness the energy currents running throughout the ley lines and nodal points, for the benefit of humanity.
There are Tibetan, Chinese, white and brown skinned Melchizedek genetic lineages connected to the angelic human 12 Essene Tribes that were protecting the 8D and 9D planetary stargate system during several NAA raids. They were drawn to the primary planetary stargates in the Tibetan Plateau and the border with China, as this region was designed to function as the universal Antahkarana or rainbow bridge for the Universal Mind and the Universal Kundalini currents coming in to the planetary grid system from the Andromedan matrix. These groups hid in the Kunlun Mountain range and went further south, down into the underground cave systems near Mount Kailash, in which they founded the ancient origins of the Tibetan civilization. These maji grail tribes were known as the Zhun Zan and the Zoo Zen, which further tells of the secret history of Tibet, through the story of the beginnings of the ancient kingdom they founded in the area of Mount Kailash named Zhang Zhung. The spiritual kingdom was founded upon the intelligence of the sacred geometric principles of the Universe, connected to the 9D Rainbow Bridge as the Axis Mundi, and based upon the esoteric spiritual wisdom teachings of the Law of One taught by the Founder Melchizedeks in the earliest forms of Buddhism, connected to the mysteries of the Solar Anointed Christ-Buddha Initiation.
Thus, these original teachings are extremely ancient and suffered dilution over vast periods of time coupled with several rounds of civilizational collapse, what remained in oral traditions became the origin of several orders of Tibetan Buddhism, including Bon and Zoroastrianism. The Bon religion currently believes its teachings to be from the oldest known traceable source, some believe it originally came from Zoroastrianism or Kashmiri Buddhism. However, these and several other contemporary eastern religions source from the original Melchizedek rainbow ascended master teachings that were given to them through Founder Law of One knowledge connected to their original maji grail lines in their specific DNA records for that Essene Tribe.
