Be Wise, Go Kind, Live Fully.

Welcome to Nalandabodhi Vancouver

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

Nalandabodhi Vancouver 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.

Please see our calendar for current activities.

At Mahasidda Retreat Centre we offer solo and group retreats, and invite students to participate in teacher-led Retreat Programs.

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.
