Foundation Program at Bodh Gaya Kadampa Buddhist Center
The Foundation Program (FP) is a unique study program designed for practitioners who wish to deepen their knowledge and experience of Dharma, and gain authentic spiritual realizations through a structured program of Dharma study and meditation.
On Thursday evenings we study Geshe Kelsang Gyatso's book, Joyful Path of Good Fortune. By contemplating these practical instructions, meditating on them and integrating them into our daily lives, we can improve our qualities of love, compassion and wisdom and eventually attain the everlasting joy of full enlightenment.
