“These programs, therefore, are real wishfulfilling jewels for Dharma practitioners. By participating in them we can improve our wisdom and Dharma experience and use Dharma to solve our daily problems. We can become our own protector by protecting ourselves from danger and
suffering, and our own doctor by curing our mental pain with Dharma medicine.”
Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche

 

Sundays 4-8.30pm at KMC London, Studying Essence of Vajrayana, beginning 9 April 2017 with a free taster class

Kadampa Meditation Centre London is offering the rare and precious opportunity to study Essence of Vajrayana on Teacher Training Programme, the essential commentary to the practice of Heruka Body Mandala composed by the living Tantric Master, Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche.

Through systematic study and meditation on this profound practice we will come to realize the very essence of Buddha’s tantric teachings and eventually come to abide forever in the vast space of the union of appearance and emptiness as a Heruka, from which state we can effortlessly benefit all living beings.

The Programme will then begin on Sunday 23 April.  Term dates are:

Sunday 23 April – Sunday 21 May

Sunday 11 June – Sunday 16 July

TEACHER TRAINING PROGRAMME

Teacher Training Programme (TTP), offers practitioners of Kadampa Buddhism the opportunity to study deeply, gain practical experience of both Sutra and Tantra as well as train to become qualified Dharma teachers.
The programme consists of a dynamic combination of teachings, meditations, discussion and teaching skills classes providing a multi-faceted approach to the development of authentic spiritual experience.

PLEASE NOTE: It is not possible to be on more than one in-depth study programme at the same time ie you cannot be on Teacher Training Programme and Foundation Programme or Special Teacher Training Programme (at KMC London or another Centre) simultaneously. If you are already on a study programme then it would be necessary to first stop that programme before enrolling. We would encourage anyone thinking of doing this to speak first with their resident teacher.

To enrol you will need to fill out an application form to become a member of Kadampa Meditation Centre London

For those with a Highest yoga Tantra Empowerment only.
