About Nalandabodhi Philadelphia

Nalandabodhi Philadelphia is an American Buddhist meditation center. Under the direction of Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche, our center provides an open and supportive space for engaging in study, meditation, and mindful activity on the journey to discover the full potential of our own mind. 

Open Meditation and Study

For those seeking a quiet place for contemplation, we offer Open Meditation on Sundays from 9:45-10:45 a.m. Instruction is provided as needed on the basics of calm abiding (shamatha) meditation.

Nalandabodhi has developed a comprehensive and systematic Buddhist study curriculum that applies to our lives today. Starting at 10:45 a.m. on most Sundays, we review and discuss study material, on a variety of topics. Please check our calendar for specific topics and dates.


Many of our Nalandabodhi offerings are open and available to all. For those interested, membership provides access to a greater range of study and practice opportunities.
