Menri Monastery

In 1405 the great Bon master Nyamed Shenrab Gyaltsen founded Menri monastery in place of Yeru Wensaka and became its first abbot. Since then, Menri has become the mother monastery of all Bonpos. The abbot of Menri is given the title of world spiritual head of the Bon tradition. Until 1959 there were about 500 monks studying in four colleges of Menri: Lingmed, Lingtod, Lingke and Lingzur. We will participate in meditation and prayer ceremonies at Menri Monastery.
