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. Khenpo Sherab Sangpo

Khenpo Sherab Sangpo will teach on the famous mind training instructions brought by Atisha from India to Tibet. Buddhism contains many profound ways to meditate on wisdom and compassion—Atisha’s lojong slogans are particularly treasured as they condense the entire Buddhist path into practical instructions that can be practiced in everyday life.

Khenpo Sherab Sangpo will teach based on his meditation experience and the pith instructions of his lineage masters.

Please join us for this precious opportunity to receive these profound, yet eminently practical, meditation instructions.

Open to all who wish to benefit all living beings.
