Tibetan Buddhist Meditation Classes & Retreats with Khenpo Sherab Sangpo
Bodhicitta Sangha | Heart of Enlightenment Institute is a non-profit organization offering Tibetan Buddhist meditation classes and retreats taught by Khenpo Sherab Sangpo, a professor of Tibetan Buddhism in the Nyingma lineage. Khenpo Sherab Sangpo’s teachings are open to all who wish to awaken bodhicitta via teachings and meditation practices that generate compassion and loving-kindness for all living beings.
To practice the good heart of love and compassion, there is no need to become a Buddhist. Whoever we are, we need a sincere, non-deceitful, kind heart. If we have it, we will definitely have a happy life and we can powerfully benefit others. The focus of my teachings is to guide my students in developing their bodhicitta, a kind heart filled with love and compassion for all living beings.Khenpo Sherab Sangpo

Our mission is to make bodhicitta, the precious mind of enlightenment, the basis for all we do. As a spiritual community (sangha), we study the Buddhist teachings as laid out in the progressive stages of the tradition of the lineage gurus, doing so correctly and in such a way that fits our own mental capacity; with an altruistic attitude. We welcome other faithful students who are interested in joining our spiritual community by introducing and explaining the beneficial qualities of the Buddha’s teachings. We benefit and befriend all students who have entered into spiritual practice by acting with a sense of propriety and conscientiousness. We create opportunities for students to meet together and discuss the Buddha’s sacred teachings; without any sense of envy or bias. We study with qualified spiritual teachers; contemplating and meditating on the stainless literary traditions of the Sutra and Mantra without sectarian bias.
In short, the mission of Bodhicitta Sangha | Heart of Enlightenment Institute is for each of us to be our own spiritual teacher, constantly working to ensure that our physical, verbal, and mental activities are made meaningful by maintaining mindfulness and awareness.
