Be Wise, Go Kind, Live Fully.

Welcome to Nalandabodhi Akasha

A space for meditation. A center for study. A virtual village that supports your desire to live more fully. Our global, web-based  community is all these things.

Nalandabodhi Akasha is the online home to a community of people who embrace the ancient yet timeless wisdom of the Buddha. We offer weekly online meditation practice (often followed by lively discussions), online classes in Buddhist philosophy, and webcasts of teachings from around the world. The benefits of these practices and studies are relevant and applicable to our everyday lives.

The name “Akasha” (a-KA-sha) was given to the Nalandabodhi online community by our spiritual leader, Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche. It means “sky” in Sanskrit, emphasizing the vastness and clarity of the sky—and all the possibilities that Nalandabodhi Akasha has to offer.

Would you like to learn how to meditate? Participate in group meditation or mindful activity? Take classes or an occasional weekend program? Be part of our community celebrations? We welcome your participation in all ways that interest you!

If you feel a strong or special connection with our teachers, our community, or the teachings, you may want to become a member of Nalandabodhi. Membership is flexible, allowing you to participate in ways that fit your interests and your schedule. Please contact for information about membership.

Whether you are new to Buddhism or a long-time student, we invite you to join us. We look forward to meeting you!
