Foundation

Programme

Foundation Programme provides a unique opportunity to deepen our understanding and experience of the spiritual path through studying and meditating systematically with a group of like-minded people.

The purpose of the Foundation Programme is to provide a systematic presentation of particular subjects of Mahayana Buddhism and to enable practitioners to deepen their knowledge and experience of Buddhism. 

We often say, “My mind, my mind”, but if someone were to ask us,

“What is your mind”, we would have no correct answer.

This is because we do not understand the nature and function of the mind correctly.

 

GESHE KELDANG GYATSO,
HOW TO UNDERSTAND THE MIND

The teachings will be based on the inspiring

book How to Understand the Mind written by

the contemporary meditation master and founder

of Jampel Buddhist Centre, Venerable Geshe Kelsang

Gyatso Rinpoche.

 

This book offers deep insight into our mind, and shows

how an understanding of its nature and functions can

be used practically in everyday experience to improve

our lives.  In addition, it describes different types of

mind in detail, revealing the depth and profundity

of the Buddhist understanding of the mind. It concludes

with a detailed explanation of meditation, showing

how by controlling and transforming our mind we can

attain a lasting state of joy, independent of

external conditions.

 

  The Foundation Program is not a drop-in class,

enrollment is required. Everyone is welcome to sign

up and experience the benefits of attending a

regular study program.
