“The actual function of a Dharma Center is to give teachings to the people in the area and, by sharing with them our experience of Dharma, to help them to solve their daily problems.”
— Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso, from the book The New Meditation Handbook
The Foundation Program gives you the opportunity to engage in a structured study and meditation program on the essential teachings of the Buddhist spiritual path right here in Lambertville, NJ.
Through regular teachings and meditation, systematic study, and group discussion, the Foundation Program (FP) offers the same training followed by spiritual practitioners in an unbroken lineage dating back to Buddha Shakyamuni. In this way we can gain authentic experience of the Dharma while still maintaining our contemporary lifestyle. By studying on this program we shall gain great confidence in meditation – from basic techniques for overcoming our everyday problems to practices leading to unsurpassed happiness and permanent inner peace. Warm friendships develop as students inspire each other, sharing insights and experiences of the spiritual path.
In this in-depth study program we are currently studying the book How to Understand The Mind, an explanation of the nature and power of the mind. Through studying and meditating on this text we understand the relationship between our mind and its external objects. If we understand that objects depend upon the subjective mind, we can change the way objects appear to us by changing our own mind. Gradually we shall gain the ability to control our mind and in this way solve all our problems. This class is a monthly commitment. You are welcome to drop in on one or two classes free of charge to see if Foundation Program is right for you.
