Bodhicitta Sangha | Heart of Enlightenment Institute is a nonprofit organization offering Tibetan Buddhist meditation classes and retreats taught by Khenpo Sherab Sangpo, a professor of Tibetan Buddhism in the Nyingma lineage.

Teachings by Khenpo Sherab Sangpo 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.
