Teacher Training Programme

Offered at our Craighall Park location, the Teacher Training Programme is for students interested in training as qualified New Kadampa Tradition Teachers or who wish to gain a clear insight into Buddha’s teachings by deepening their practice experience.

This programme includes studying, memorizing and testing of 13 texts of Sutra and Tantra. In addition, participants must observe several moral discipline commitments regarding their behaviour and way of life, and complete a number of meditation retreats. Participants can either begin with our Foundation Programme and then switch to the Teacher Training Program, or enroll directly in the Teacher Training Programme.

Thursdays 18:00 – 20:00.
