We are starting a NEW book – Great Treasury of Merit in January.

Great Treasury of Merit by Geshe Kelsang Gyatso

At every level of Buddhist practice, relying upon the Spiritual Guide is regarded as the source of inspiration, understanding, and progress on the spiritual path. But nowhere is this practice more important than in Tantra.

Great Treasury of Merit is a commentary to a sublime practice called Offering to the Spiritual Guide, which is performed publicly twice a month in all Kadampa Meditation Centers, and sometimes daily by individual practitioners.  In giving a line-by-line commentary to the practice, Geshe Kelsang explains one of the most important meditation practices of Kadampa Buddhism and shows how we can greatly increase the efficacy of our meditations by relying sincerely upon a qualified Spiritual Guide.

A work of unparalleled profundity and clarity, this book contains a wealth of accessible and practical instructions on Lamrim, Lojong and Tantric Mahamudra, the very essence of Buddha’s teachings.  An indispensable handbook for all those who wish to accomplish the swift path to enlightenment.

From 27 January, KMC Glasgow will be offering for the first time the precious opportunity to receive extensive commentary to the profound oral instructions of Offering to the Spiritual Guide as explained in Great Treasury of Merit. Through taking this text to heart we can increase our faith and reliance upon our Spiritual Guide and gather all the conditions necessary to realise the essence of the Ganden Oral Lineage instructions in this one short life.

What an extraordinary opportunity!

“At present our wisdom is like a young child, or a new moon. We may have developed some wisdom from listening to teachings and reading and studying books, but this wisdom needs to be developed much further. By relying on the Three Study Programs we can gradually increase our wisdom until it is completely mature, like a full moon. With this kind of wisdom we will have a firm, stable confidence when teaching Dharma to others.”  –  Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche

Great Treasury of Merit (paperback £12.95) is available for purchase from our shop.

About TTP


Joining TTP involves signing up with the intention to complete all the books in the programme. Participants undertake to attend every class, to learn the material – memorising essential points, and to take an exam at the conclusion of each section of the book. Each class consists of chanted prayers, a guided meditation, teaching and discussion. There are also regular teaching skills sessions and retreats connected to the programme throughout the year. TTP students are also encouraged to attend one or all of the several monthly ritual pujas, especially Offering to the Spiritual Guide on the 10th and 25th of each month which the TTP will be based on.

Through a deep and continuing commitment to the programme of study, meditation, discussion, and retreat, we can gain deep experience of Buddha’s teachings, establish a strong meditation practice, become a qualified teacher in our own right and bring great benefit to others.

Price: £30 per month (supporting member)

In order to join, enrolment is required (please note Teacher Training Programme is not a drop-in class). The class fee includes admission to all classes and courses at KMC Glasgow and our branch classes, with 30% off our special events.
