About Bodhi Path

Shakyamuni Buddha taught the path of wisdom and compassion for all beings. This path leads to the understanding and realization of ultimate reality, or enlightenment. His teachings have been preserved in an unbroken lineage to the Karma Kagyu, one of the major schools of Himalayan Buddhism.

Bodhi Path Centers were founded and directed by the late 14th Shamar Rinpoche, who, along with the Gyalwa Karmapa, was a holder of the Karma Kagyu lineage. Under the spiritual authority of the Karmapa and Shamarpa, Bodhi Path teachers provide instruction in meditation and philosophy, and guidance to learn and practice Buddhism.
