In-depth Study

The Foundation Program provides an opportunity to deepen our understanding and experience of Buddhism through a systematic study of six texts.

The Foundation Program is an enrolled program where we make a commitment to attend each class within a study section and we maintain our Centre Membership for the whole duration of our study commitment.

Through this in-depth study program we gain the ability to put all of Buddha’s teachings of Sutra and Tantra into practice and we can easily make progress on, and complete, the stages of the path to the supreme happiness of enlightenment – Lamrim.

Foundation Program

How to Understand the Mind

️ Thursdays 7 – 9pm


Teacher: Gen Kelsang Ani

What does the foundation program involve?

The Foundation Program (FP) provides a special opportunity to deepen your understanding and experience of Buddha’s teachings. Joining FP involves participating in all the study and discussion classes and taking an exam at the end of each section of the book. Each study class consists of chanted prayers, guided meditation, teaching and discussion.

Monthly membership of KMC Brisbane is required while studying FP. The cost of this is $100 per month, which also enables you to attend all the general program classes, workshops and retreats held at the Centre.

About the book being studied

“We often say, ‘My mind, my mind’, but if someone were to ask us, ‘What is your mind’, we would have no correct answer. This is because we do not understand the nature and function of the mind correctly.” Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche
This book offers us deep insight into our mind and shows how an understanding of its nature and functions can be used practically in everyday experience to improve our lives.
