The purpose of the Foundation Program is to provide a systematic presentation of particular subjects of Mahayana Buddhism to enable practitioners to deepen their knowledge and experience of Buddhism.
1. The Stages of the Path to Enlightenment, based on the commentary Joyful Path of Good Fortune
3. The Heart Sutra, based on the commentary Heart of Wisdom
4. Guide to the Bodhisattva’s Way of Life, based on the commentary Meaningful to Behold
5. Types of Mind, based on the commentary Understanding the Mind
We are currently studying the book "How to Understand the Mind". In this book we learn about the nature and function of our mind. In particular we will learn how through controlling our mind we can make ourselves happy all the time, and how the principle reason we suffer is due to currently being subject to an uncontrolled mind.
The opportunity to study this book with acclaimed teacher Gen Kelsang Rigma is not to be missed. She has been teaching the Foundation Programme here at Khedrubje Centre for 25 years and therefore has a rare ability to illuminate Buddhas teachings.
This class is held most Thursdays & Sundays at 7pm.
