About Discovering Buddhism
Discovering Buddhism is an FPMT foundational education program set out in fourteen modules. It can be studied at many FPMT centers and can also be done online. This program provides a solid footing in the understanding and practice of Mahayana Buddhism as taught in the Tibetan tradition of Lama Tsongkhapa.
