Teacher Training Program

Our next study book will start in September 2016! More information coming soon.

The Foundation Program and Teacher Training Program (FP/TTP) meet each Tuesday from 7-9 pm.  Wishfulfilling Jewel Tsog puja is from 5:30 – 6:30 pm.  Students are encouraged to attend this puja.  Contact our Education Program Coordinator (info@meditateincal.org) or in person if you are interested in joining or would like more information.

The purpose of the Teacher Training Program is to provide an extensive presentation of particular subjects of Mahayana Buddhism to enable practitioners to (1) deepen their knowledge and experience of Dharma, (2) to train as qualified New Kadampa Tradition Dharma teachers, and (3) to benefit all living beings through the flourishing of pure Buddhadharma.  Students also participant in the various TTP retreats throughout each year at the Center. Pre-registration is required, this is not a ‘drop-in’ class.

All teachers of Kadampa Buddhist Centers around the world follow this in-depth program of study, practice and retreat.
