A unique study programme to fulfill our highest potential
If you have been coming to meditation classes for a while and want to take your practice to the next level, the Foundation Program (FP) is for you. The systematic and comprehensive study of five essential subjects is an ideal option for further development.
Buddha’s teachings are precious wisdom insights that can open the door to a profoundly rich and meaningful life and lead us to lasting happiness. To extract their full meaning, we need to systematically familiarise our minds with these insights until we have penetrated so deeply into their meaning that they become our own.
The method for taking these teachings deep into our hearts is centred around three key activities: listening, contemplating and meditating. In Joyful Path of Good Fortune,
Geshe Kelsang says:
“To increase our wisdom arisen from listening we need to listen to correct instructions from fully qualified Spiritual Guides, read authentic Dharma books and discuss what we have heard. Wisdom arisen from contemplation arises from reflecting again and again upon what we have heard and understood, and wisdom arisen from meditation arises from meditating on what we have heard and contemplated. We need to keep increasing these three wisdoms continuously until we attain enlightenment.
Our study programs are structured to support the development of these three wisdoms.”
