Welcome to the Ladakh Nuns Association

The Ladakh Nuns Association (LNA) was founded in 1996 by Dr. Tsering Palmo to revive and rejuvenate the tradition of nuns in Ladakh. Dr Palmo realized that unless nunneries were built and opportunities for education were created only a few young women would be ordained. LNA aims to raise the education level of the nuns and to give them a way to study and practice the Dharma. LNA also wishes to reach out to lay women to provide spiritual education and guidance on the path.

"Ladakhi society needs educated nuns who are steeped in the religious life and whose communities are places of prayer and refuge. Ordained women contribute greatly to the preservation of spiritual life and to the highest values of society. A renewed order of nuns supported and educated by the Ladakhi people and institutions can contribute enormously in this materialistic world in an era of rapid change." Ven Dr Tsering Palmo    More > >
