At the heart of modern Kadampa Buddhism are three special study and meditation programmes designed by Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche.

  • The General Programme
  • The Foundation Programme
  • The Teacher Training Programme

These programmes help us to develop our wisdom, cultivate a good heart and maintain a peaceful state of mind, free from anxiety and unhappiness. All three programmes are offered at Tara IKRC in Etwall near Derby.

The classes offered at your local branch are part of the General Programme and focus on applying Buddha's teachings to help us solve our daily problems and find the lasting happiness we seek. Your Teacher is a qualified branch Teacher who is following a higher study programme at Tara IKRC. The classes cover a variety of relevant topics and generally consist of a talk and two guided meditations with opportunity to ask questions.

Although they are taught as a series, each individual class is self-contained and can be attended without attending the other classes.

After each class there is the opportunity to enjoy a cup of tea, as well as the chance to meet and talk with the branch Teacher.

Everyone is welcome!
