The weekly study group was established for those in the vicinity of Lotus Garden who wished to deepen their knowledge of the Buddhist path through study and personal practice. Led by a lopön, or senior teacher, the group has met for sitting meditation and individual presentations and discussion. The curriculum has been rich and varied, comprising the three main stages, or yanas,of the Buddhist path: Hinayana, Mahayana, and Vajrayana. Through study, along with personal practice, the class has provided meaningful support for students, old and new over the past years.
