FPMT Foundational level courses

There are two FPMT recognised Foundational level courses: Discovering Buddhism and The Foundation of Buddhist Thought.

The Discovering Buddhism course is a course in 14 modules introducing you to key the teachings and practices of Tibetan Buddhism 

The onsite course usually takes about 2.5 years to complete the 13 study modules.  
The 14th special personal practice module may take you longer. We may look at offering an onsite course starting n 2019 or later.
