Dive deeper into your study, practice and implementation of Buddhist philosophy into your life through studying the newly republished The New Eight Steps to Happiness, a commentary to the famous Eight Verses of Training the Mind by the great Tibetan Bodhisattva, Langri Tangpa.  This inspiring book reveals essential methods for transforming all life’s difficulties into valuable spiritual insights and for developing universal love and compassion, the source of true happiness for both self and others. We are now offering open enrollment in our in-depth study class, the Foundation Program.

Foundation Program (FP) is a study program that meets weekly on Sunday evenings at SMC in New Bedford. This program is ideal for those who regularly attend our drop-in classes and would like to deepen their knowledge and practical experience of Dharma.  It is also possible to participate in the Foundation Program via correspondence.

You’re welcome to try two classes at no cost and no commitment to see if you’re interested in joining the program.
