Lerab Ling is home to a thriving community of monastic and lay spiritual practitioners

Each member of the community studies and practices Buddhism on a daily basis, each at their own level. They also participate in the centre’s activities like welcoming visitors, preparing and holding events, responding to prayer requests and providing spiritual guidance. The community meets together on a regular basis in order to take part in Lerab Ling’s governance and elected chapter which is renewed every three years.


The spiritual heart of Lerab Ling is the community of monastic practitioners who observe a daily schedule of prayer and meditation, following one of the most ancient lineages of the Tibetan Buddhist tradition (the Nyingma school).

During the time of the Buddha monks and nuns were completely dependent on receiving alms from lay people. So too in our present times, the monastic community of Lerab Ling rely entirely on the generosity of others for their support.

Your donation will support Lerab Ling's monastic life and activities which include: making tsa-tsas, filling statues, making takdrols, holding many different aspects of rituals throughout the whole year and during drupchös, as well as taking care of the sacred shrines in Lerab Ling. They assist in spreading the Dharma by producing and translating texts. The monks and nuns pray for the sick, deceased and those facing difficulties and provide attendance for Lamas when they visit Lerab Ling. Your support also enables them to engage in retreat, to study in the shedra and to attend teachings.

Please support our monastic community by making a donation.

As is traditional for a monastic community, they offer prayers of dedication to their sponsors and the names of all donors will be included in their practice.

Thank you for your generosity!

Perhaps the greatest legacy you can leave to the world is the gift of wisdom. Connect with the Rigpa Legacy Programme.
