More about the Discovering Buddhism Series

Discovering Buddhism is a fourteen-module series that gives the student a solid foundation in the teachings and practice of Tibetan Mahayana Buddhism. Mind and Its Potential is the first module in the series. Developed by the FPMT, this series is both accessible for newer students and also very helpful for students who have already studied Buddhism for a while, but wish to have a more solid foundation. To read more about this FPMT program and what the topics of the fourteen modules are click here.
