Foundation Study Programm (FP)

Sunday Evening  19:00 - 21:00



A study programme designed by Ven. Geshe Kelsang Gyatso for modern people to deepen their understanding and experience of Dharma. Suited for those who have some understanding of Dharma, Buddhas Teaching, but would like to know more.

The English Foundation Programme is studying Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoches books page by page with preparatory chanted prayers, guided meditation, commentary to the text and pair discussion.

We are presently studying 'How to Understand The Mind' by Geshe Kelsang Gyatso, which offers us a practical Buddhist presentation of how to improve our everyday happiness by improving our understanding and control of our mind.


To join the programm students have to:

* commit to study for the duration of each section of the book, trying to not miss classes.

* preparing for the classes in advance to respect discussion partners.

* writing an exam at the end of the section.

* make effort to attend a weekly puja (buddhist prayers to receive blessings for our studies and practice).
