Practice Instructors (PIs) are Nalandabodhi practitioners who have been students of Buddhism for some time, have completed their preliminary (ngondro) practices and the Path of Study courses, and have made a strong aspiration to benefit the Nalandabodhi community (sangha) by working with others as a guide to their practice. Practice Instructors have also been trained and approved by Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche to do this work.
Take the Courses
In Nalandabodhi each person has either a PI, or a Practice “buddy,” depending on their situation and level of practice. We are encouraged to practice and discuss our practice together.
Although PIs are intended for Nalandabodhi members only, non-members can request to have a PI for six months, to help them decide if they’d like to become a member of Nalandabodhi.
