Mondays in Guelph @ AKBC • 6:45 PM – 9pm
Our study program – the Foundation Program (FP) is an in-depth program designed for people who wish to deepen their understanding and experience of Kadampa Buddhism through a systematic study of essential Buddhist commentaries by Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche. This study program was designed by Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche as a means to facilitate the development of our unlimited spiritual potential. This class is a perfect opportunity to engage in discussion and meditation with fellow students. Anyone can join and experience the great benefits of being part of this regular study program. As a result of systematic study, meditation and discussion, we can improve our good heart, our wisdom, and our cherishing of others by going deeper into our study and meditation practice.
On May 1, we will begin a new term of study with the first section of How to Understand the Mind – the nature and power of the mind. This section of the book covers Part One of the book.
The first class on May 1 is an open house class that everyone is welcome to attend. Classes are in person but those who live a long distance from the Centre may be able to attend online. This section will continue until November 2023.
For those who are unable to attend at the Centre, it is possible to also attend the class online with livestream and participate in the class via Zoom.
If you would like to sit in on a class or join our class online, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you have been attending our drop-in General Program classes regularly and would like to engage in more meditation and discussion to gain deep realizations of the spiritual path, the Foundation Program is for you. You are welcome to attend and sit in for the first two classes before joining. Upon joining the class, we ask that you attend all the classes in this section. We have classes every Monday, except holiday Mondays. All classes held at AKBC are included in your Foundation Program membership, so you can drop-in to any General Program class or course, at any time, and deepen your Dharma experience.
