Be Wise, Go Kind, Live Fully.

Welcome to Nalandabodhi Toronto 

Nalandabodhi Toronto is home to a community of people who embrace the ancient yet timeless wisdom of the Buddha. Guided by our founder, Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche, we offer meditation practices, classes in Buddhist philosophy, and mindful activities that support our centre and community. The benefits of these practices and studies are relevant and applicable to our everyday lives.

Whether you are interested in starting a meditation practice or have been a student of Buddhism for decades, we invite you to join us in our new centre in Leslieville. Our centre offers study classes, meditation, visiting teacher events, and more. 

Please check our Calendar for the full list of upcoming activities. 

Visiting teacher: Lama Rabten Tshering will be visiting NBT for teachings in 2020. We will post more information in April!

Please note: 
Our centre’s public meditation practices have moved online until further notice. Friends & Members of NBT will receive the weekly schedule via email. Also check our website calendar for updates.
