Welcome to the Bangkok Shambhala Meditation Center

The Bangkok Shambhala Meditation Center is part of a global community which aspires to awaken kindness, goodness and wisdom within society. This vision is rooted in the principle that every human being has a fundamental nature of basic goodness.

Addressing harm in the Shambhala community.

The meditation technique that we practice and teach is Shamatha Viphashana a mindfulness-awareness meditation. This technique originates directly from the Buddha Shakyamuni and has been passed from teacher to student for over 2500 years.


We host a variety of meditation classes each week at the Shambhala center here in Bangkok, to accomodate the schedules of our diverse group of members. Each class is led by a meditation instructor (certified and trained in the Shambhala Buddhist lineage), so you can ask any questions you have about your practice, or just come along and benefit by sitting with a group!

In addition to the regular drop-in classes, we occasionally have visiting teachers, and special practice events or classes. Check out the calendar of events & programs to see what’s happening and follow us on Facebook.


How to get here: we are located on Sukhumvit Soi 23, on the 3rd floor of the Young Place Plaza. You can take a motorcycle taxi from the Asoke BTS station for 20 Baht, or walk through the Interchange building and get a motorcycle from the Soi 23 side, for 10 Baht. If you walk, it takes about 10 minutes from the station.  Once you enter the Young Place building, turn left, and walk to the end of the hall to get to the elevator. Take the elevator to the 3rd floor. Turn left when you exit the elevator and you’ll see us.
