Special Teacher Training Programme

The Special Teacher Training Programme (STTP) at Manjushri KMC was designed by Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche to train qualified Teachers of Modern Kadampa Buddhism. It is taught by Gen-la Kelsang Dekyong.

The core of the programme is the study and meditation classes based on the books of Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche.

The purpose of the study component is to enable students to gain an understanding of the deep meanings of Buddha’s teachings and learn how to apply them to modern daily life. The purpose of the meditation component is to enable the students to gain practical experience of the meaning of the teachings. Qualified Teachers need both.

There are two ways to participate in the programme:

  1. Attending the live classes at Manjushri KMC
  2. Studying by correspondence

Current programme
On 14 April 2024 the programme will begin the study of the Fifteen Lamrim Meditations from the book The Mirror of Dharma with Additions. See the schedule for class dates and times.
