  • About This Event

    Foundation Program

    Beginning January 12 we will be starting our study of The New Heart of Wisdom.

    The New Heart of Wisdom is an extraordinary book. It reveals the direct and hidden meanings of Buddha’s Perfection of Wisdom Sutras in a way that we can apply them to our modern life.

    As soon as we start reading we feel as if we are transported back to 567 BC listening to Buddha himself as he delivers the Sutra on Massed Vultures Mountain.

    Then reading Venerable Geshe-la’s commentary to the Sutra we are brought immediately to the present day and see clearly how the profound meaning of this Sutra can be applied to solving the problems of modern life and to transforming our daily life into the path to liberation and enlightenment.

    The Foundation Program provides excellent conditions to deepen our experience along our spiritual path through study, guided meditation, discussion and practical advice.
