Take your meditation and practical experience of Buddha’s teachings deeper. The Study Program in Oak Park is currently studying Joyful Path of Good Fortune. With this book, Geshe Kelsang Gyatso offers us step-by-step guidance on the meditation practices that will lead us to lasting inner peace and happiness. With extraordinary clarity, he presents all Buddha’s teachings in the order in which they are to be practiced, enriching his explanation with stories and illuminating analogies. This is a perfect guidebook to the Buddhist path.
In the Oak Park Study Program, we study a book by our founder, Geshe Kelsang Gyatso, and receive inspiring commentary from our Resident Teacher, Gen Kelsang Dorje. Each class meeting also includes opportunity for in depth discussion and more time for contemplative meditation.
Each person's situation is unique, but in most cases we recommend attending drop-in classes for at least a few months before joining the Study Program. This allows you to gain a broad familiarity with the teachings before going in-depth with them.
