Foundation Study Programme

Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso - Buddhist Nun, Kelsang Yankyi

The Foundation Programme is a unique in-depth study programme designed by Geshe Kelsang Gyatso and taught by our Resident Teacher Kelsang Yankyi.

Course Description

The foundation programme is a uniquely structured study programme that enables us to gain a deep understanding and experience of Buddhist teachings and meditation practices. It is ideal for those who have a general understanding of Buddhism, but wish to learn more.

Through guided meditation, study and discussion, the programme offers us the opportunity to learn to apply Buddhist Sutra teachings in our daily life. Through this we can experience inner growth and greater happiness.

There are two separate Foundation Programme classes, one on a Wednesday evening (in East Dereham) and one on a Sunday morning (in Attleborough), each of these classes studies a different text.
