The Foundation Program Study Group
We offer an on-going study program for those who want to learn, in a more stuctured and systematic way, how to practise the Buddhist path to enlightenment. A brief description of the program is given here. Please contact us if you would like to know more, with a view to joining the program.
What's involved in the study program
Generally people join the Foundation Program study group after they have been attending General Program classes for a while. The group meets every Wednesday to receive teachings, meditate and discuss a few pages from the book being studied. We decide together what we will practice during the coming week. Students also do some preparatory study themselves for the next week’s class. The main benefit of joining the study program is that it helps you to deepen your understanding of Buddhism and helps you to integrate Buddha’s teachings into your daily life, along with others having the same interest.
How to join the study program
There is a monthly fee to join the study group. This is paid every month of the year and helps to support the Centre. You can either join as a Centre Supporter (520kr/month) which gives you free access to all the regular events, or as a Foundation Program Participant (360kr/month) which gives you access to the Foundation Program only. It is also possible to join “by correspondence” or “online”. You can enrol for the program at any time and recordings of all classes are made available. Before enrolling it is possible to join the program for a month to try it out.
The book we are presently studying
The book we are currently studying is entitled “Joyful Path of Good Fortune” by Geshe Kelsang Gyatso. It provides a comprehensive description of all the stages of the path to enlightenment and how to practice them. Through studying this book you will come to know what you need to do to accomplish happiness in this life, happiness in all your future lives, liberation or full enlightenment.
