Be Wise, Go Kind, Live Fully.

Welcome to Nalandabodhi Connecticut

Nalandabodhi Connecticut is a vibrant community of meditators in the greater Hartford area who embrace the ancient and timeless wisdom of the Buddha. Our community provides many ways to connect with companions on the path of awakening. 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.

At our shrine room and online, we offer weekly practice and study opportunities, weekend programs, Buddhist celebrations, and practice retreats. In conjunction with Nitartha Institute, we offer 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. We look forward to meeting you.
