The Nalandabodhi Mission Under the Guidance of Dzogchen Ponlop Rinopche

To provide a complete curriculum of study, meditation, and mindful activity, based on an authentic lineage of Buddhist teachings, that is accessible and relevant to everyday life.

And, to offer a supportive environment for exploring and applying these teachings, with people who understand the challenges of creating a meaningful life in the 21st century.


Nalandabodhi Boulder was the first center in the Nalandabodhi mandala. It began in 1996 when The Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche was invited to take the seat of the “Wisdom Chair” at Naropa University. A group of students gathered around Rinpoche and he began teaching regularly to the budding sangha. Soon after, Rinpoche moved to Seattle and incorporated Nalandabodhi as a religious non-profit organization.

Nalandabodhi Boulder gives you many ways to connect with companions on the path to awakening. You may want to start by taking the Introduction to Buddhism course in the Nalandabodhi Path of Study.
