About Lerab Ling

Lerab Ling is also known as the Institute of Wisdom and Compassion. It was chosen as the site for the Tibetan Buddhist temple because of its breath-taking mountain landscape which reflected the beauty, tranquillity and solitude found in the Himalayas.

Lerab Ling is located in Occitanie (formerly Languedoc- Roussillon) within an hour’s drive of the airports of Montpellier and Beziers.

The temple is situated high in the mountains of Lodévois-Larzac area at the edge of the Grands Causses natural reserve in Southern France just outside the town of Lodève. Lerab Ling offers everyone the opportunity to take a break from their busy daily lives, in a peaceful and sacred environment that inspires rest, reflection, revitalisation and renewal

Lerab Ling was consecrated by His Holiness the Dalai Lama in 2008, who retains private quarters at the temple, and is home to a thriving community of monastic and lay practitioners, who study and practice Buddhism and mediation on a daily basis.

The temple also plays host to external events and courses and welcomes visitors to experience the peace and tranquillity it offers.

Lerab Ling and its surroundings are also perfect for meditating outdoors and going for beautiful walks on the many hiking paths.

The Manjushri room located in the main temple is dedicated to personal study and practice of meditation. It is equipped with a library of books and audio and/or video teachings on themes such as meditation, the fundamentals of Buddhism, healing, finding peace, overcoming depression, relationships and much more, to support you in your personal leadership journey.

Additionally, morning meditation sessions are available to allow you the opportunity to absorb the techniques of meditation and personal energy management to allow you to maximise your leadership potential.

Enjoy this rare opportunity to escape to an oasis of calm at a genuine Tibetan Buddhist temple, situated in the beautiful natural seclusion of the mountains of Southern France.
