Foundation Program


A Unique Study Program

The purpose of the Foundation Program is to provide a systematic presentation of particular subjects of Mahayana Buddhism to enable people to deepen their knowledge and experience of Buddhism. It consists of regular teachings and meditation, systematic study, and group discussion. In this way we can gain authentic experience of the Dharma while still maintaining our normal daily life’s activities. On this program, students study 6 texts by Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyastso Rinpoche.

By studying on this program we shall gain great confidence in meditation – from basic techniques for overcoming our everyday problems to practices leading to unsurpassed happiness and permanent inner peace. Warm friendships develop as students inspire each other, sharing insights and experiences of the spiritual path. In this way, we are able to gain a deeper understanding of the meaning of Buddha’s teachings, maintain a daily meditation practice that is both focused and powerful, and make genuine spiritual progress. FP meets on Mondays from 6:30-8:30 PM. To join this program, enrollment is required. For more information, please contact:
