with Gen-la Kelsang Kunsang

The teacher of this programme is Principal Teacher of KMC Glasgow, Gen-la Kelsang Kunsang. She has been studying and practising Buddhism for 25 years and is skilled at presenting the deeper meaning of Venerable Geshe- la’s books in a way that is relevant and accessible to all.

What is The Foundation Programme?

Foundation Programme has many benefits (as mentioned above) and is not a drop-in class.  Enrolment is required to join the class, and we ask that everyone who enrols has a sincere personal commitment to try to attend each class, to attend regular group pujas (see ‘Chanted Prayers’ and ‘Friday Night Prayers for World Peace’ under In-Depth on website), and to sit an exam at the end of each part of the book.

These personal commitments combined with the special structure of the class enable us to get the most from our efforts to improve the quality of our mind and realise our full potential. The programme consists of a dynamic combination of teachings, meditation, and discussion, all of which enable us to go deeper into the layers of meaning within each book that we study.  All of this helps us to make real progress along our spiritual path.

The programme runs to normal school term times. Each class consists of preliminary prayers, guided meditation and reading from the book with commentary and discussion.
