Welcome to Nalandabodhi
New York

A space for meditation. A center for study. A community that supports your desire to live more fully. Nalandabodhi New York is all these things.

Nalandabodhi New York 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 and programs in meditation, Buddhist philosophy, and mindful activity. The benefits of these practices and studies are relevant and applicable to our everyday lives.

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.
