The Bodhi Path Center Renchen-Ulm was opened in March 2006 by Jigme Rinpoche as the European main seat of Shamar Rinpoche as well as the main Bodhi Path center in Europe.
Shamar Rinpoche always emphasizes to learn the Shine- and Lhagtong-meditation as well as the practice of Lojong, the 7-Point mind training. At the same time, Rinpoche recommends studying the teachings of Mahamudra and Madhyamika.
The detailed Bodhi Path Curriculum which was created by Shamar Rinpoche can be found on our website under Teachings.
Inspired by Rinpoche‘s blessing an intensive program is taking place in the center with teachers such as Shamar Rinpoche himself but also: H.H. Gyalwa Karmapa, Beru Khyentse Rinpoche, Sherab Gyaltsen Rinpoche, Jigme Rinpoche, Trinlay Rinpoche, and many more qualified teachers.
The Bodhi Path Center is glad to have created a place together with its helpers and supporters in which many people have the chance to get in direct contact with the precious Dharma teachings and the teachers.
Thanks to the many generous donations and supportive activities it was already possible to create the meditation hall as well as different guest rooms for accommodation, a dining room and a lounge and different terraces. This all provides a beautiful frame for the courses.
As the center is located in a rural environment it is very suitable for times of retreats.
