Bodhi Path is a worldwide network of centers and dharma groups founded by the 14th Shamar Rinpoche, also known as the 14th Shamarpa within Tibetan Buddhism.

The network has centers in Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Czech Republic, Finland, France, Germany, Guatemala, Hong Kong, Italy, Malaysia, Norway, Serbia, Spain, Switzerland, Taiwan and USA, and provides instructions in meditation and Buddhist philosophy. The teachings are rooted in authentic dharma teachings and are suited to the needs and conditions of modern-day dharma practitioners. Each center hosts a regular calendar of teachings, practice sessions, and mini-retreats. Bodhi Path is open to all, whether or not you are a Buddhist, and offers a non-sectarian approach to Buddhism. We firmly believe that learning to meditate is of benefit to everyone.

Our purpose is to explore the methods and teachings of the Buddha so that we can better understand and work with our mind and emotions.


Bodhi Path Stavanger started meditations in 2011 after Shamar Rinpoche's approval.
We meet regularly on Mondays, working with the guidelines from the Bodhi Path curriculum. We also host several teachers providing support for the center during the year.
You can follow Bodhi Path meditation times and events on the web page or Facebook page, as they are subject to change.
Bodhi Path Stavanger is a nonprofit based group, officially registered as a religious organization with the Norwegian Central Coordinating Register for Legal Entities, Brønnøysundregisteret. The organization number is 919414162.
