The myth of Bon cosmogony is often narrated in various religious texts and thus these versions are not necessarily similar. In this paper the author would like to present the myth based on the 'Srid-pa'i mdzod-phug'. The myth of Bon cosmogony does not only concern the description of the nature of the universe, but at the same time it also explains the evolution of sentient beings. The author would like to point out the main concepts of Bon cosmogony, such as elements, existence and sky and how they are related to each other and to Tibetan and Zhang-Zhung beliefs in general.
