The Treasury of Lives

Menri, the main Bon monastery located in Namling county in central Tibet, was founded in 1404 or 1405 by Nyamme Sherab Gyeltsen. At one time it housed 350 monks, four colleges, a school of dialectics, and an assembly hall. It was largely destroyed during the cultural revolution, and although some restoration has occured, the site still has extensive ruins and only a small cohort of monks.
