Foundation programme

Joyful Path of Good fortune

by Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso

Starting September 2022
Part 1
 
Taught by Resident Teacher Gen Kelsang Leksang
 

A clear and comprehensive explanation of the entire path to enlightenment. We all have the potential for self-transformation, and a limitless capacity for the growth of good qualities, but to fulfil this potential we need to know what to do along every stage of our spiritual journey.

With this book, Geshe Kelsang offers us step-by-step guidance on the meditation practices that will lead us to lasting inner peace and happiness. With extraordinary clarity, he presents all Buddha’s teachings in the order in which they are to be practised, enriching his explanation with stories and illuminating analogies. This is a perfect guidebook to the Buddhist path.

The practice of Lamrim is very important because everyone needs to cultivate peaceful states of mind. By listening to or reading these teachings we can learn how to control our mind and always keep a good motivation in our heart. This will make all our daily actions pure and meaningful.

Our Foundation and Teacher Training Programs will continue to be offered in person and also online. Foundation Programme is an excellent option for those who have been attending our classes online regularly and wish to continue deepening your understanding. If you are unable to attend the centre weekly to study on Foundation Programme due to health reasons or distance, you are welcome to apply to attend FP as a home study programme.
