An FPMT Introductory Programme
led by Venerable Thubten Lhundrup
Discovering BUDDHISM is the result of the combined efforts of a number of FPMT teachers and spiritual programme coordinators, under the guidance and advice of Lama Zopa Rinpoche, Spiritual Director of the FPMT.
The aim of the Discovering BUDDHISM is to give participants a solid footing in the practice of Mahayana Buddhism. Specifically, Discovering BUDDHISM is an introduction to the teachings of the Lam-rim, or graduated path to enlightenment, a step-by-step blueprint of the realisations a single individual needs to actualise in order to attain full enlightenment in one lifetime.
By engaging in this programme, participants will gain an experiential taste of the Buddha’s teachings, some retreat experience, and the skills they need to make their lives most meaningful. Also, by the end of this programme, participants should have a solid foundation from which to make informed choices about their continued spiritual development.
As such, this programme is not designed as an academic study of Buddhism but is intended to change a person’s life.
“Awakening all limitless potential of your mind, achieving all peace and happiness”
When Lama Thubten Yeshe and Lama Zopa Rinpoche transmitted these teachings to their disciples, they imparted a deeply
experiential tradition of study and practice, leading thousands of seekers to discover the truth of what the Buddha taught.
This tradition is the core of Discovering BUDDHISM

See how the entire path to enlightenment hangs together as a cohesive whole and where the teachings on impermanence and death, the first and last that the Buddha gave, fit in.
