Nalandabodhi’s international community includes people from different cultures who share a commitment to kindness and clarity. We’re united and inspired to lead a more meaningful life and bring more joy to the world.
Our community provides space for individual exploration while ensuring we aren’t alone on our journey. We work together to bring kindness and compassion into our daily lives. By supporting each other during the difficult times and celebrating the happy ones, our personal transformative process is enhanced by the richness of interconnection.
Nalandabodhi Colorado had its beginnings in 1996 in Boulder, Colorado under the guidance of Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche. We were one of first Nalandabodhi centers. Now there are 22 centers in 9 countries.
Over the past 20 years, Nalandabodhi Colorado has grown to over 80 people. Some of us are new to meditation. Others have been practicing and studying for many years. Together we work to support each other as we strive to embody the wisdom that will lead to a kinder world.
We recently changed our name from Nalandabodhi Boulder to Nalandabodhi Colorado to reflect our expanding membership along the Front Range and beyond. Our physical center is called Odantapuri and is located at 100 Arapahoe Ave, Boulder CO.
We are fortunate to have one of our Nalandabodhi teachers living in Boulder, Mitra Lee Worley.

The Path of Mindful Activity integrates practices of mindfulness and the aspiration of bodhichitta (the intention to benefit all beings) with the activities of daily life. Bodhi Heart serves both our members and our greater community. Here in Boulder we serve the homeless once a month and provide sangha members in need with rides to the sangha or around town, errands, household chores, food delivery, pet care, and when friends and family are ill or in the process of dying we have an advocacy support program. If you would like to contribute donations, energy, or ideas to Bodhi Heart please contact Trish Flaster at firstname.lastname@example.org
