THE STAGES OF THE PATH TO ENLIGHTENMENT
Following Part 2 of the New Heart of Wisdom
The Foundation Programme will move on Thursday night beginning 8th June in a new venue – Christ Church, Morningside, 6a Morningside Road, EDINBURGH, EH10 4DD.
Class dates June – July 2017:
June 8, 15, 22, 29
July 6, 13
The study of the present book ‘The New Heart of Wisdom’ will be concluded before Summer Festival (mid-July). After the Summer break, the plan is to resume FP on Thursday 7th September. The new book to be studied is ‘Universal compassion’ by Geshe Kelsang Gyatso.
These classes form part of the Foundation Programme (FP) of Kadampa Buddhism and provide an opportunity to deepen our understanding and practice of the spiritual path through a dynamic combination of teaching, meditation and group discussion.
The evening will begin with some preparatory practices and a guided meditation. This will be followed by a teaching introducing the Buddhist path to enlightenment based on The New Heart of Wisdom and a brief discussion in pairs about the ideas raised.
After the class, there will be an opportunity to stay behind and ask any questions that you may have about the program and an opportunity for those who wish to sign up. This involves becoming a supporting member (which also give you free access to most of our other classes and events) as well as making a commitment to come each week.
It is possible to try one class on a drop-in basis before deciding to enrol.
We look forward to welcoming you soon!
