We are thrilled to be able to offer the Foundation of Buddhist Thought Course, created by Geshe Tashi, at Jamyang Bath. It provides a thorough and practical grounding in Tibetan Buddhism, designed specifically for students in the West. Its special quality is that Geshe Tashi draws upon the depth of Tibetan Buddhist philosophy to show how Buddhism can make a real difference to the way we live our lives today.
The course consists of six modules studied over two years, beginning in September 2017. The classes will be taught by registered FPMT teachers on alternate Wednesday evenings from 7.30 – 9.30 pm, and will involve presentation of the ideas, lively discussion and meditation. Students of the course will need to read the course books written by Geshe Tashi (we have some available in our bookshop), and it is recommended that people attending have some prior knowledge of Buddhist ideas.
The six modules studied on the course are as follows:
“A real life-changer. The jigsaw that was Dharma all suddenly fits into place.”
Student of the online course
The Foundation of Buddhist Thought is an FPMT course developed by Geshe Tashi of Jamyang Buddhist Centre in London and approved by Lama Zopa Rinpoche. The course fits into the FPMT educational structure between Discovering Buddhism and the Basic Programme.
Those attending the classes will have the opportunity of registering for the Foundation of Buddhist Thought certificate. As well as attending the classes and reading the books, this will involve daily practice, reading and written assignments, a 1,500 word essay and a written assessment. You will be supported by a tutor online.
Students who fully complete the course will obtain an FPMT certificate, designed and signed by Lama Zopa Rinpoche, the Spiritual Director of the FPMT.
In addition to the donations for attending the classes, there will be an additional charge for the certificate course of £60 per year. You will need to buy your own copy of the books.
