The Nalanda Institute for Contemplative Science is an educational non-profit inspired by the world’s first university, Nalanda University, founded in India in the fifth century to advance the Buddha’s mission to end suffering by offering public education in the health and mind sciences. Nalanda University’s scientific tradition was preserved in the colleges and medical schools of Tibet as the world’s oldest system of integrative medicine and positive psychology.

The Nalanda Institute for Contemplative Science has evolved this rich legacy into a rigorous, scientific approach to self-knowledge modernized for the Western world through training in timeless contemplative skills informed by today’s practical neuropsychology.
