The Foundation Programme is a study and meditation programme designed to deepen our understanding and experience of Buddhism. It involves systematic study and contemplation of any or all of six essential Mahayana Buddhist scriptures and their commentaries by Geshe Kelsang Gyatso.
Participation in the foundation programme allows us to increase our personal insight and experience of Dharma.
