FPMT Education Programmes

FPMT offer a vast range of study programmes, fulfilling the needs of beginners to advanced practitioners. From introductory meditation programs to beginning courses, from lam-rim to the five great philosophical texts they aim to help you progress along the path to enlightenment.

Land of Joy are thrilled to be hosting two of these programs in 2018, Buddhism in a Nutshell and Discovering Buddhism.

Buddhism in a Nutshell is an introductory course on Buddhism for complete beginners. It presents basic Buddhist philosophy and principles within the Tibetan Mahayana context, and provides simple meditation instruction.

Discovering Buddhism gives students a solid footing in the practice of Tibetan Mahayana Buddhism. It offers students an experiential taste of the Buddha’s teachings, retreat and practice experience, and the skills needed to make life most meaningful.
