In addition to weekly meditation classes, Heruka Center also offers the Foundation Program for those who want to study Mahayana Buddhism through a structured in-depth program.
The Foundation Program provides a chance to deepen our knowledge and experience of Buddhism through a structured program of study and meditation classes. It is an excellent basis for daily meditation practice.

Study The New Heart of Wisdom on Foundation Program!
- Understand the relationship between our mind and our world
- A special method for overcoming difficulties in daily life
- Removing obstacles to realizing our full potential
The very heart of Buddha's teachings are the Perfection of Wisdom Sutras. Study together Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso's commentary to the Heart Sutra, also known as the Essence of Wisdom Sutra.
Those who wish to engage in this program should begin by consistently attending the drop-in classes on Wednesdays, Sundays, or Tuesdays. If this is not possible, then you may wish to discuss with Gen Rinzin.
Foundation Program is a study and meditation program specially designed to help us take the teachings deep into our heart--to increase our Dharma experience and wisdom. Students undertake to read the material before class. Then Gen Rinzin gives the oral transmission of the text and additional commentary. We then discuss and decide how to practice the meaning until the next class. Then, to start the next class, we meditate on what we've studied and practiced. All together, we study, listen, discuss, practice, and finally meditate on the teachings. Through this we can expect to gain practical understanding and experience of Buddha's teachings.
