“We need to transform whatever circumstances we meet, whether good or bad, into the spiritual path by channelling all our actions in a virtuous direction. This practice is extremely important. Those who engage in it successfully will never have to experience anxiety or discouragement but will be able to remain calm and peaceful in all circumstances.” – Geshe Kelsang Gyatso
The Foundation Program provides an opportunity to deepen our understanding and experience of Buddhism through systematic study. If you are thinking about joining, or are curious to see what these classes are like, please feel free to “sit in” on the first few classes and check it out. Each class will cover an assigned number of pages from the book, with an emphasis on practical application.
The book Universal Compassion gives a practical and uplifting explanation of how we can transform our day-to-day lives – including even the most demanding and difficult situations – into opportunities for personal and spiritual development. Ancient meditative techniques that have been tried and tested for centuries are brought alive and made relevant to our everyday experiences.
