Caring for Our Community

Caring for our community of ordained and lay practitioners at Lerab Ling—who uphold our main spiritual practices and traditions—is one of our main responsibilities. Their health, well-being and support are vital for the life and activities of Lerab Ling.

At the centre of this community is Mayum Tsering Wangmo, whose presence and blessings are felt by all. Considered to be an emanation of the long-life deity, Ushnishavijaya, by the great Dzogchen master, Khenpo Ngakchung, she is a leading inspiration to us at Lerab Ling. Alongside some of our senior monastic members, she is now elderly in years and in need of increasing care and support. We wish to show how, as a community, we can continue to embrace and support the elderly members of our practising sangha, in order that they can fulfil their spiritual path in the most meaningful way possible.

While much of this care and support is offered readily by those who live in Lerab Ling and locally, our expenses are growing and we are in need of more financial help. We are therefore asking your support for our vision of caring for Mayum Tsering Wangmo and other senior members of our community of practitioners.

Please support us by making a one-off or regular donation.

Our heartfelt wish is to uphold an example of care and support for our senior practitioners that will inspire other centres and communities to do the same. It is imperative that the practitioners who dedicated their lives to the Dharma path and who chose Lerab Ling as their home are able to remain here for the rest of their life, supported by the most conducive environment possible. Please help us to realize this!

Thank you for your generosity!
