Menri Complex Still Growing

Menri Monastery main temple
Under the leadership of the Abbot, the Yungdrung Bon Monastic Center has seen significant growth at the Menri complex. As of 2005, the population at the Center stands at 135 monks, 160 Menri children, 253 boys and girls at the Bon Children's Home, and 34 Nuns at the Redna Menling Nunnery. It is important to appreciate that since 1968 when the land had nothing on it but weeds, rock and dust, the Yungdrung Bon Monastic Center has completed housing for monks, nuns, and children, a dialectic school, two temples, a nunnery, library, health center, craft workshops, guesthouse, and farm. Also in the Menri complex is a settlement of about 75 families and a Tibetan School run by the Indian Government that educates children from the monastery, Bon Children's Home, and the Village of Dolanji.
