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 Shamar Rinpoche directly.
The center in the Kaierstraße had been a guesthouse before and offers guest rooms and a meditation hall (converted from a former bowling alley). These are best conditions for the course program and the accommodation for the participants.
Located amidst vineyards and orchards the center can be found in Ulm, a village near Renchen, close to Baden-Baden, Offenburg and only 30 km from Strasbourg. Just a 10 minutes’ drive from the highway exits Achern or Appenweier it is easily accessible. Renchen even provides a train station in a 5 km distance from the center.
