Meditation Teachings


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.

Just as all the previous sugatas, the buddhas,
Generated the mind of enlightenment
And accomplished all the stages
Of the bodhisattva training,

So will I too, for the sake of all beings,
Generate the mind of enlightenment
And accomplish all the stages
Of the bodhisattva training.

In this video, Khenpo Sherab Sangpo, a professor in the Nyingma lineage of Tibetan Buddhism at Bodhicitta Sangha | Heart of Enlightenment Institute, offers teachings on the bodhisattva vows, the vow to awaken bodhicitta (enlightenment mind) to benefit all beings via great wisdom and compassion.

If we do not recognize the nature, there is no enlightenment. Enlightenment is beyond saṃsāra and nirvāṇa. That is what we call the ground or the base. This ground is our awareness—our true inner nature.
