Path of Study

Nalandabodhi offers complete study and education programs on Buddhism.

The Nalandabodhi Path of Study courses make up one part of the three-part Nalandabodhi Path designed and supervised by Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche. Taken together with the Path of Meditation and the Path of Mindful Activity, the Path of Study courses give you a thorough training in the philosophical and meditative disciplines of the Kagyu and Nyingma Buddhist traditions, as well as practical instruction for applying your studies and meditation experience to your daily life.


“We’re cultivating our intelligence as opposed to expanding or upgrading its contents. It’s like brightening a room by putting a higher-watt lightbulb in a lamp. Suddenly we can see everything in the room much more clearly.”
— Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche

The Nalandabodhi Path of Study is supplemented by an advanced Buddhist studies program provided at Nitartha Institute, also under the direction of Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche. Such a systematically organized curriculum of Buddhist studies, which leads students through a gradual path, is for the most part unavailable elsewhere.
