Renchen Ulm Center

Shamar Rinpoche had the wish to open a Bodhi Path Center close to Strasbourg and this wish is fulfilled in a wonderful way with the object in Renchen-Ulm.

The house became the first European Bodhi Path Center and was inaugurated by Lama Jigme Rinpoche on the 5th March 2006. It is now the European Seat of Shamar Rinpoche and is thus guided by him directly.

What is Bodhi Path?

Bodhi Path is an international organization of Buddhist centers founded by and under the direction of Shamar Rinpoche (also known as Shamarpa). The Bodhi Path centers offer an open and non-sectarian access to Buddhism.

Under the guidance of Shamar Rinpoche, our teachers provide instruction in Buddhist meditation and philosophy and provide guidance for our Buddhist practice.

Who is the Shamarpa?

Shamar Rinpoche is the 14th Shamarpa, or Red Hat Lama of Tibet. He was born in 1952 and spent many years in India studying with Buddhist scholars. In 1980, he began to travel and teach in various Buddhist centers throughout Asia and the West. He organized the Bodhi Path Buddhist Centers in 1996.

Rinpoche is the author of several books.

Open to all

Each individual determines his or her own level of commitment. While participation in some practices and ceremonies requires deeper commitments, each center offers a range of activities and opportunities to learn and practice that require no commitment.

Guided meditation is taking place daily from Monday to Thursday at 8pm and is open to all.
