Nalandabodhi is an international Buddhist community offering the timeless wisdom and boundless compassion of the Buddha to inspire individuals and create kind communities in today’s world. We emphasize working with our minds and hearts through the teachings of the Buddha. In particular, we approach the dharma, the Buddha’s teachings, as a “science of mind” through the three paths of study, meditation, and mindful activity. In this way, we are invited to ask questions, explore, and experiment with the methods ourselves. Learn more about us—including our online offerings of study and practice—at
