About us

Realizing the dwindling situation of Buddhist nuns and other social problems in Ladakh, Venerable Dr. Tsering Palmo, a Ladakhi nun and traditional Tibetan Medical (AMCHI) doctor with far-sighted vision established the Ladakh Nuns Association (LNA) in 1996. Since its establishment, LNA has been providing opportunities for young girls, whose families maybe have experienced difficulties, to have secular and monastic education and live in the nunnery with spiritual nurturing and care of the older nuns. In order to promote the role of nuns, LNA has given them the opportunity to obtain higher education in Buddhist philosophy and in AMCHI Traditional Tibetan Medical studies outside Ladakh and within India.
