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.
