Foundation Programme – In-Depth Study of Kadampa Buddhism
The Foundation Programme is designed for those who wish to take their study and practice of Buddhism a step further. The Foundation Programme (FP) provides systematic study, meditation and discussion on six essential Buddhist texts to deepen our understanding of Buddha’s teachings.
Systematic study each week is essential in developing and nurturing both our wisdom and compassion, which are necessary qualities leading to the lasting inner peace of a Buddha. By studying the essential Buddhist texts as presented by our Spiritual Guide, Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso, we can internalise Buddha’s teachings and develop the qualities that enable us to become a source of peace and happiness for others and we can then be of real benefit to our family and friends, our society and our world.
“By studying on FP we naturally increase our Dharma wisdom and improve our ability to benefit others”
– Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso
Each session includes preliminary prayers, guided meditation, teachings and transmission of the text, with discussion and dedication to conclude each session.
Students enroll for one book at a time, and commit to attending every class. It is possible to enroll at any time and a free trial is available, after which payment is by standing order on a monthly basis.
KMC Wales aims to launch a new Foundation Programme early in 2021.
