For over two millennia, the teachings of the Buddha have helped people lead happier, more peaceful lives. Times change, but these teachings remain a proven and profound guide.
Nalandabodhi’s path makes the Buddha’s teachings relevant and approachable for the modern mind. Through study, meditation, and mindful activity, we begin to see clearly, open our hearts, and foster a truly meaningful life.
Buddhism was founded more than 2,500 years ago in ancient India by the historical Shakyamuni Buddha. Over the centuries, the teachings spread throughout Asia, and then to the west in the mid-twentieth century.
Nalandabodhi’s path is rooted in the Vajrayana tradition of the Nyingma and Kagyu schools of Buddhism, which were established in Tibet during the first millennium. These two schools have transmitted the Buddha’s teachings through an unbroken lineage that still exists today.
