“The New Eight Steps to Happiness” is a modern day commentary by Geshe Kelsang Gyatso to one of Buddhism’s best loved poems, Eight Verses of Training the Mind, composed by the great Tibetan Bodhisattva Geshe Langri Tangpa. Through studying this text we will gain the ability to integrate Buddha’s teachings into our daily life and solve our daily problems.

“Everyone, whether religious or non-religious, is looking for happiness all the time and wants to be free from problems and suffering permanently. We can fulfil these wishes through understanding and practising the instructions given in this book” Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche

The Foundation Programme provides a unique opportunity to deepen our understanding and experience of Buddhist meditation and practice through the systematic study of six essential texts. The classes form a dynamic combination of meditation, teaching and discussion, all of which enable us to go deeper into the meaning of the text and make real progress along the spiritual path. Foundation Programme is not a drop-in class but a committed weekly program, with term breaks throughout the course of study.

There are many benefits to joining Foundation Programme, namely:

  • increased wisdom and experience of Dharma (Buddha’s teachings)

  • studying and meditating more effectively following a specially designed programme

  • the opportunity to discuss, clarify misunderstandings and share experiences with like-minded people

Each class consists of preliminary prayers, guided meditation and reading from the book with commentary and discussion. Students can join at any time but are required to formally enrol.
