Buddhism meditation

Kopan Monastery


Kopan Monastery offers short residential courses in Buddhist meditation and practice throughout the year. These courses give a theoretical and practical introduction to Buddhist philosophy of the Tibetan Mahayana Tradition. They are based on one of the principal teachings of this tradition called 'The Graded Path to Enlightenment' (Lam Rim).
The courses combine lectures and teachings with meditation practice and discussion of relevant topics in a more informal way.
A three day retreat with intensive guided meditation on the Graded Path to Enlightenment follows the course.

The course is led by a Western nun with daily teachings from a Tibetan Lama, combining two styles of transmission of this precious knowledge on how to make life meaningful and worthwhile.

The courses last for one to three days and serve children in two age groups : eight to eleven and twelve to fifteen.
All courses throughout the world are run solely on the basis of freely offered donations. There is no fee charged, the course is financed totally by donations from students who have completed a prior course and wish to share the benefits they themselves received by giving donations for the students who come after them. Neither the teacher nor the assistant teachers receive remuneration , they and those who serve the course volunteer their time. This practice is consistent with the pure tradition , whereby the teaching is to be offered freely, free from any taint of commercialism, and supported by donations stemming from the wholesome volitins of gratitude and generosity.
