Mission & Affiliations

Bodhimarga is a non-sectarian (rimed) and non-denominational community dedicated to the study of Buddhadharma.  We provide a platform for the transmission of authentic Buddhist teachings by organizing retreats throughout the United States under the guidance of our spiritual director, The Venerable Tenzin Priyadarshi.

Bodhimarga is a teaching affiliate of Prajnopaya Institute of Buddhist Studies, whose chief patron is His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama.  Prajnopaya Institute emphasizes critical study combined with serious practice, dedicated to learning and service through wisdom and compassion.

We strive to uphold the Nalanda tradition of Buddhist philosophy and religious practice.  A wonderful tribute appears here.
