Welcome to the Lama Yeshe Ling Tibetan Buddhist Group Community

 Visit the Lama Yeshe Wisdom Archives - photo by Merry ColonyLama Yeshe Ling Tibetan Buddhist Group is an open-hearted community that empowers people to discover and develop their inherent potential for compassion, wisdom and inner peace. Here you can get in touch with what is happening in our community, meet friends, learn about Buddhist Philosophy, and most importantly discover methods that may help you to overcome suffering, develop compassion and gain insight. We are a collection of FPMT study groups in Central Ontario, meeting in Kitchener/Waterloo, Oakville, Burlington, Hamilton and Toronto.

The Foundation for the Preservation of the Mahayana Tradition ('FPMT') transmits the Mahayana Buddhist tradition and values worldwide through Tibetan Buddhist teachings, meditation, community service, retreat centers, and projects that support the Inspiration and Guide of the FPMT His Holiness the Dalai Lama. The FPMT is based on the Gelugpa tradition of Lama Tsong Khapa of Tibet as taught by our founder, Lama Thubten Yeshe and spiritual director, Lama Zopa Rinpoche.

Buddhism in a Nutshell

Buddhism in a Nutshell provides a basic introduction and overview of Buddhist philosophy and principles, particularly as they are practiced in the Tibetan tradition. The topics we explore include: 
  • Introduction to meditation
  • What is Buddhism?
  • The life of Shakyamuni Buddha 
  • Some of the Buddha’s teachings 
  • History of Buddhism
  • What does it mean to be a Buddhist? 
We don’t assume that anyone attending this course knows anything at all about Buddhism or meditation. If you’re new to Buddhism, this is a great place to start. We also do not assume that anyone in the class wants to become a Buddhist. As the Dalai Lama says "Don't try to use what you learn from Buddhism to be a Buddhist; use it to be a better whatever-you-already-are."
 
The class will meet Tuesdays 7:00 to 9:00 pm, starting February 17, for 10 weeks. You’ll gain the most from attending all ten sessions, but it’s okay if you don’t. You can join in at any point and still gain something from being here.
