Manjushri Kadampa Meditation Centre
Travel two miles south of Ulverston, along the A5087 and you will see the dramatic Victorian Gothic mansion that is Conishead Priory.
The first building was erected in the twelfth century as a hospital for the relief of the poor and for the care of lepers.
It was later converted into an Augustinian priory. The priory also owned land in Great Langdale.
Over the years, the building has been a stately home, military hospital and a miners’ retreat.
The main building, Temple and grounds are owned by the Manjushri Buddhist Organisation.
This large Gothic Revival building and Kadampa Buddhist Temple are close to Lothlorien and easily accessed by car or train from Kents Bank.
Furthermore, if you are interested in a visit to the Buddhist Temple, house or grounds, an introduction to Buddhist meditation, or in-depth courses and retreats, Manjushri KMC offers an enjoyable and meaningful experience.
Additionally, there is a free 15-minute meditation daily at 12.30 and 2 pm in the Temple.
Lothlorien is an ideal place to stay for visitors to the NKT-IKBU International Festivals in Ulverston.
