Hayagriva is affiliated with the FPMT, a Buddhist organisation with over 160 affiliated centres, monasteries, nunneries, retreat centres, and charitable projects around the world. The FPMT has created Discovering Buddhism, a structured curriculum aimed specifically at newcomers to Buddhism. Discovering Buddhism has 13 modules. Modules are self-contained and can be taken in any order. Each module is taught over several sessions (one per week) and ends with a “retreat”. The “retreat” is an intensive practical conclusion to the module and takes place over an entire day on a weekend (or over two days on a long weekend).
Venerable Chökyi teaches the Discovering Buddhism modules on Sundays (11.30am to 1pm). Discovering Buddhism can be taken as a formal program with accreditation. When you register for Discovering Buddhism at HBC, each week, you will receive the printed material. Discovering Buddhism is described in more detail on the FPMT website.
