Buddhism teaches that to find lasting happiness and meaning in our lives we need to follow a spiritual path.
To follow this path it is important to have a qualified teacher who can offer us advice and encouragement and give us pure Dharma teachings. It is also important to have a strong spiritual community who provide good conditions for our practice.
These conditions help us penetrate more deeply into the meaning of Buddha’s teachings, engage in sincere and regular study, and maintain a daily meditation practice that is both focused and powerful.
Through regular teachings and meditation, along with systematic study and discussion, the Foundation Program offers spiritual support. In essence it is the same training followed by spiritual practitioners in an unbroken lineage dating back to Buddha himself.
Its special quality is that we can gain authentic experience within the context of our modern lifestyle. By studying on this program we will gain great confidence in the methods for transforming the mind – from basic techniques for overcoming our everyday problems to practices leading to unsurpassed happiness and permanent inner peace.
Foundation program is also available by correspondence for those who live far from the Center.
