The Bodhi Institute of Compassion and Wisdom USA (BICW-USA) is a nonprofit organization registered with state and federal governments in the United States, and is made up of members from across the United States. Its main purposes are to propagate Buddhist teachings and philosophy and to bring benefit to sentient beings.

This ancient practice of self-discovery is rooted in the simple but revolutionary premise that every human being has the ability to cultivate the minds inherent stability, clarity and strength in order to be more awake and compassionate in everyday life.
