Welcome to our community, the Nalandabodhi Sangha!

In this age of wired super-connectedness — Facebook, texting, email, and the rest — it’s strangely common to feel a bit lonely. We’re moving so fast, but where are we headed? Who can we talk to about the big questions?

“The Buddha himself was not just interested in ultimate truth and the liberation of individuals from their suffering. He thought deeply about the welfare of society, and his teachings reflect the connection between the development of the individual and social institutions of all kinds.

He taught that we must begin our spiritual journey by working with ourselves and developing our own understanding. Then, step-by-step, we reach a level of realization in which we can open our hearts to all living beings. In this way, the progressive development of the individual becomes the basis for the development of social harmony and cohesion.”

– Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche, from Rebel Buddha 

Nalandabodhi offers many ways to connect with companions on the path to awakening. You may want to start by finding a Nalandabodhi Center near you, where you can attend a program, or take a course in the Nalandabodhi Path of Study, the Path of Meditation, or the Path of Mindful Activity.


There are Nalandabodhi centers and study groups throughout the US, Canada, Mexico, Europe, and Asia.

The At-Large Center serves our members who do not live near a center or study group.
