  The Foundation Series  

Meets 10:00am-4:00pm, one Saturday per month
(see calendar for exact dates and schedule)

If you are considering the practice of Buddhism, The Foundation Series provides a basis for individual and group practice at Drepung Loseling Monastery, and serve as a general prerequisite for more advanced retreats. The five-part series introduces the spiritual aspirant to the essential elements of Tibetan Buddhist philosophy, theory and practice, and constitutes the Beginner’s Level of our Buddhist Studies programs. The course was initially designed by Kyabje Rizong Rinpoche specifically for Drepung Loseling Monastery, Inc., and over the years we have offered it many times. See calendar for individual dates and topics.

The Intermediate Series

The Intermediate Series continues where the Foundation Series leaves off by surveying the essential teachings and meditations of Mahayana (Greater Vehicle) Buddhism. Beginning with an “Introduction to Mahayana Buddhism,” each successive retreat will then cover an essential Mahayana meditation. The series concludes with a retreat on Vajrasattva, a meditation for purification and inner transformation. See calendar for individual dates and topics.

We offer a number of other special courses during the year that you can also register for. Check our calendar for updates on these or sign up to our email list.

The Lamrim Series

The Lamrim system is a practical, step-by-step presentation of the entire stages of the path to enlightenment, starting from the very beginning of an individual’s spiritual development, and leading progressively to the state of Buddhahood. As such, it is a system that is practice, rather than theory-oriented.
