Monasticism has always been the bedrock of Tibetan culture. Menri Monastery-in-exile has replaced the original Menri Monastery in Tibet as the spiritual center for all Bonpos. The 140 monks who make up its monastic community are indispensable to its survival. Menri monks are responsible for maintaining the large monastery complex itself as well as all the rituals and ancient practices of their Bon lineage. Their work ensures the continuation of a vibrant and relevant system that has only recently been discovered by the modern world. While many kind people are moved to help and sponsor Bon children, there is less awareness of the importance of the great works and sacrifices made by the monks of Menri. Sponsoring a Bon monk is an invaluable contribution to the continuity and future of Bon.
