JOIN US SUNDAYS in person at 1225 Pepper Street in San Luis Obispo or by Zoom here.

About the Center

We all share a desire to be happy and free from suffering, but this goal seems to elude us much of the time. Located in San Luis Obispo, the Bodhi Path Buddhist Center welcomes everyone interested in the Buddhist path to true happiness. We provide opportunities to learn and practice meditation and to study and discuss teachings from a progressive Buddhist curriculum.

Guided by Mahayana Buddhism, by the wisdom of our late founder, Shamar Rinpoche, and by our teachers, we meet each Sunday morning and regularly host Bodhi Path teachers in person and by ZOOM. Our resident teacher, Khenpo Tsering Samdup, teaches twice monthly in person or, when he is traveling, remotely. We occasionally sponsor longer programs, including teachings from Dharma Teachers, Lamas, and Rinpoches from Asia, Europe and the Americas.

Bodhi Path SLO welcomes experienced practitioners, total beginners and everyone in between. Explore these pages and links to learn more about both our local dharma community and the larger Bodhi Path organization–and, most of all, to visit the San Luis Obispo Bodhi Path Center. Current programs are listed below. Mark your calendar.

We meet Sundays from 10 am – 12 pm for Meditation, Practice, Teachings and Discussion, unless there is a special teaching event. We periodically have retreats, evening meditation and book study: please check our calendar for the most up-to-date information.
