Acharya Tenzing Wangpo, Belgrade, March 7-9

Mindfulness practice has deep roots in the Buddhist tradition. More than 2,600 years ago, the Buddha instructed his older disciples, the monks, to pass on these teachings to others and to practice their disciples in the Four Foundations of Conscious Attention. “Why?” They asked him.
“Come friends,” replied the Buddha. “Stay contemplating body to body, committed, clearly understanding, focused, with a concentration of mind focused on one point, to know the body as it really is. Contemplate mind in the mind … to know the mind as it really is. Stay contemplating phenomena in phenomena … to know what they really are.”

The practice of contemplation (or as we would say – meditating on …) The four basics – body, feelings, mind and phenomena – are recommended for people at all levels of the spiritual path. As the Buddha explained, this applies to all practitioners who have recently become interested in the Buddhist path, monks and nuns, even archates, advanced meditators who have already freed themselves from suffering.

The Buddha’s teachings are preserved in a continuous line of transmission, part of which is Karma Kagju – one of the four schools of Tibetan Buddhism.
The Bodhi Path Center was founded by Shamar Rinpoche, who along with Gjalva Karmapa was the holder of the Karma Kagju lineage. Under the spiritual guidance of Karmapa and Shamarpa, Bodhi Path teachers provide meditative and philosophical instruction to anyone interested in learning and practicing Buddhism.

Learning and Practice Curriculum
The Bodhi Path provides a curriculum of learning and meditative practices designed by Shamar Rinpoche, rooted in authentic Buddhist teachings and adapted to the needs and living conditions of contemporary practitioners.
This curriculum is taught in all Bodhi Path Centers and can be accessed based on the instructions of a qualified teacher.

Shamar Rinpoche (1952 – 2014)
Mipam Chokji Lodro was born in 1952 in Tibet. When he was fourteen in the XVI Gjalva Karmapa, the holder of the Kagju line of Tibetan Buddhism recognized him as XIV Shamarpa. The Shamarpa is Red Hat Lama, the line it was created in the 13th century and represents the second oldest continuous lineage of incarnations and transmissions of Kagju teachings and holders of the lineage. Shamar Rinpoche remained with the XVI Gjalva Karmapa until his death in 1981 and received a full transmission of teachings from him. Since 1980, he has taught at various Buddhist centers across Asia and the West. In 1996, he began to establish the Bodhi Path Buddhist Centers, that is, a network of centers based on a non-sectarian approach to Buddhism. The Bodhi Path Centers curriculum is based on the teachings of mind training (lojong) originating from the nineteenth-century Indian Buddhist teacher Atisha. The Atisha methods are especially practical and effective for practicing the mind and deepening the wisdom in our modern age, and in addition can be transmitted and applied outside the monastic framework.
