Nalanda West Event Center
Nalanda West is run by volunteers of Nalandabodhi International, a Buddhist community under the direction of Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche.
Inaugurated in 2004, Nalanda West is Nalandabodhi’s international event center, offering regular public programs and teaching events inspired by the Five Fields of Knowledge originating at Nalanda University, an ancient center of higher learning in Bihar, India that flourished from the fifth or sixth century CE to 1197 CE.
Located in Seattle, Washington, USA, Nalanda West brings audiences a curated selection of teachings and presenters from diverse traditions. All of its programs speak to our shared need for global awakening and the quest to live a meaningful life. www.nalandawest.org
