I then went on to study Tibetan at Oxford University with Prof. Charles Ramble (2009-2010) becoming his research assiatant and, as well as having articles published in both English and Russian, has been invited to lecture in Oxford, London, St. Petersburg, Vilnius, Cagliari, Budapest etc. In 2011 I was invited to speak at 'Bon, Shangshung, and Early Tibet' conference where I delivered a paper 'Bön as a multifaceted phenomenon: looking beyond Tibet to the cultural and religious traditions of Eurasia' which since has been published as a multimedia presentation on Foundation for the Preservation of Yungdrung Bön's website and can also be watched in the Video section of this Author Page.
In 2012 the Foundation for the Preservation of Yungdrung Bön
was established with Khenpo Gelek Jinpa, Carol Ermakova and myself as founding members and with the full support and blessings of Yongdzin Lopön Tenzin Namdak Rinpoche who became Foundation's honorary member. To date the FPYB released several public books:
