About Menri 'Medicine Mountain' monastery

Now there are 350 residents living and sharing the new temples, the library, the Bon Dialectic School, the health center and the nunnery.

His Holiness Lungtok Tenpai Nyima Rinpoche, 33rd Abbot is now more than 80 and fulfills his role as spiritual leader of the Bönpos and of the Yungdrung Bon Monastic Center.

Across the river, the new Redna Menling (Land of Precious Medicine) Nunnery is also headed by His Holiness; this nunnery is the only bonpo one in India where girls and women can now study for 18 years to become Geshema and teach the Dharma/Bön.

Furthermore, more than 370 children from Nepal and Tibet come to Menri for an educational and basic refuge also; their school is located in the valley below the monastery and is run by the Indian government with an emphasis on the Bön educational program.
