FPMT Essential Education

Here’s a fantastic FPMT program that parents and educators (buddhist and non-buddhist) should definitely learn more about:

16 Guidelines for Life — this introduces the project:

“Based on an original text from King Songtsen Gampo in 7th century Tibet, the 16 Guidelines offer a practical introduction to secular ethics, starting with Humility and ending with Courage. They are divided into four wisdom themes: How we think (the power of the mind); How we act (that every action brings a result); How we relate to others (that we are all interdependent) and How we find meaning (impermanence).”

For more information, visit the project’s main website.. Essential education projects are underway around the world in homes, schools, hospices, drug rehabilitation centres, prisons and workplaces.

The Guhyasamaja Center is considering offering an Essential Education class for teens. There is a great need for this type of class in our part of the world! If anyone is interested in volunteering in helping us design and implement the program, please contact Ven Tendrol.

  1. You ever just get tired of reading dharma or scriptures or the Koran or the Khaballa?

    Why don’t we just “live” the right life? Live like you . . . me . . . we . . . are Buddha?

    Could save our eyesight.”
