Foundation Program (FP)

Mondays 7-9pm

The Foundation Program (FP) is open to everyone who wishes to deepen their practice and experience of Modern Kadampa Buddhism. Through in-depth study and practise, it helps us close the gap between the inspiring teachings we hear at the Centre and practising them in our daily life. We learn how to integrate all the meditation practises and wisdom advice from Buddha into our normal daily life. In this way we gradually find a deep inner peace and happiness in our lives.

Foundation Program offers a structured approach to learning Buddhist meditation through the study of a particular book and classes consisting of guided meditations, teachings and discussion.


By joining the Foundation Program, you will enjoy all the benefits of full Centre member. The Foundation Program fee is $80 per month (free for FP & Benefactor members)

Please contact us at if you would like to hear more about Foundation Program and how to join. We will start up again when we have 10 members!

The Book

The foundation program will be studying the book ‘The Joyful Path of Good Fortune’ by Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche. This inspiring book offers us deep insights into the stages of the spiritual path known as Lamrim. It shows how an understanding of the stages of the path can be used practically in everyday experience to significantly improve our inner peace, happiness and quality of life.

More about FP

Through the structure of the Foundation Program, the student is immersed in an environment which provides:

  • A clear and precise presentation of the basic aspects of Mahayana Buddhism.
  • The perfect basis for a strong daily practice
  • The support of a Spiritual Community.
  • The transmission of the complete path to enlightenment in a way that is easy to understand and apply in daily life.

Taught by Amitabha Centre’s Resident Teacher Kadam Kelly Loeffelmann, this unique study program enables us to gain authentic experience of the Buddhadharma within the context of our regular lives.
