Foundation ProgramWhat is the Foundation Program?

The Foundation Program (FP) is a way to deepen our experience of Buddha's teachings and find meaning and lasting happiness in our modern life. Joining FP involves studying an entire book or commitment section and trying to attend all classes, one of which is an end-of-term exam. Each class consists of prayers, guided meditation, teaching and discussion.

What are we studying?

We are currently studying Joyful Path of Good Fortune. A clear and comprehensive explanation of the entire path to enlightenment. We all have the potential for self-transformation, and a limitless capacity for the growth of

good qualities, but to fulfill this potential we need to know what to do along every stage of our spiritual journey. With this book, Geshe Kelsang Gyatso offers us step-by-step guidance on the meditation practices that will lead us to lasting inner peace and happiness. With extraordinary clarity, he presents all Buddha’s teachings in the order in which they are to be practiced, enriching his explanation with stories and illuminating analogies. This is a perfect guidebook to the Buddhist path.

How do I start?

We generally advise students to attend drop-in classes regularly for at least a few months. FP is a committed study program, so this previous experience with the teachings gives you a solid foundation for your personal commitment to the program. The next thing to do is contact us and arrange to come along and sit in on a class to find out what it's all about. You are welcome to attend a class before enrolling.

You can join the program at any time. Class fee: $60 per month which includes entry to all Brisbane courses and classes.
