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.

Video Teachings with Khenpo Sherab Sangpo

Khenpo Sherab Sangpo offers teachings on experiencing emotions as meditation. When you bring awareness to your mind, your pride, anger, jealousy, desire, and other emotions become your teachers. Being present in the moment with awareness self-liberates the emotions into space. In Buddhism there are many skillful methods or ways of working with emotions suitable to each level of meditator. Khenpo Sherab Sangpo teaches many practical methods in this four-part video series for working with emotions.

The Ground of Awareness

In this four-part video series, Khenpo Sherab Sangpo, a professor in the Nyingma lineage of Tibetan Buddhism at Bodhicitta Sangha | Heart of Enlightenment Institute, offers teachings on the ground of awareness and guided meditation instruction using mindfulness of the breath.

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.
