Our Lineage

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.
