In Depth Study Program


Foundation Program

These classes of systematic study and practice of Kadampa Buddhism are especially suited to people of this modern world. Anyone can join and experience the great benefits of being part of this twice-weekly program. Through this we can improve our good heart, wisdom, love, as well as our ability to meditate.

Foundation Program is not a drop-in program so enrollment is required but everyone is welcome. Classes are Sundays 2-4pm and Thursdays 7-9pm. There are commitments such as regular attendance and a monthly fee of $80.

Please contact our Education Program Coordinator Kelsang Lamden: for any concerns or queries.
