The Foundation Program (FP) is about to begin the study of The New Heart of Wisdom, by Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche. FP, in general, is an opportunity to deepen our understanding and experience of Buddha’s teachings. Studying The New Heart of Wisdom, in particular, offers an opportunity to gain deep insight into the ultimate nature of reality through which we can become permanently free from all suffering.

“By revealing the profound meaning of the very heart of Buddha’s teachings – the Perfection of Wisdom Sutras – this book shows how we can attain pure, lasting happiness through developing special wisdom and universal compassion.”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 consist of chanted prayers, guided meditation, teaching and discussion. You can join FP at any time.

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 most retreats.

If you would like to join FP, please email us at fp@meditateinbrisbane.org
