Do I have to be a Buddhist to attend?

Bodhi Path is open to all, whether or not you are a Buddhist. We firmly believe that learning to meditate is of benefit to everyone.

Is there a commitment?

Each individual determines his or her own level of commitment. While participation in some practices and ceremonies requires deeper commitments, each center offers a range of activities and opportunities to learn and practice that require no commitment.

What are the qualifications of the teachers?

All Bodhi Path teachers have received extensive training according to traditional Buddhist methods. All teachers are held to the highest standards of moral and ethical conduct, and many were appointed by Shamar Rinpoche according to their qualifications. Many teachers have completed multiple 3-year meditation retreats.
