A space for meditation. A center for study. A community that supports your desire to live more fully. Nalandabodhi Seattle is all these things.
Nalandabodhi Seattle is home to a community of people who embrace the ancient yet timeless wisdom of the Buddha. Guided by our founder, Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche, we offer classes in meditation and Buddhist philosophy. The benefits of these practices and studies are relevant and applicable to our everyday lives.
Through Nalanda West we offer weekend programs, residential practice retreats and artist residencies. In conjunction with Nitartha Institute, we offer advanced classes in traditional Buddhist philosophy.
Whether you are interested in starting a meditation practice or have been a student of Buddhism for decades, we invite you to join us.
