Teacher Training Programme

Train as a Qualified Kadampa Buddhist Teacher

Great Treasury of Merit

Sundays 10am - 12noon, 12.45pm - 2.15pm

This is a wonderful opportunity to study and practise Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche’s book "Great Treasury of Merit". It offers clear instructions on how to rely correctly upon a Spiritual Guide, the foundation for all spiritual attainments. This book contains a wealth of practical instructions on the essential practices of both Sutra and Tantra.

The Teacher of TTP is Kadam John McBretney, the Resident Teacher of Heruka KMC. He has been studying, practising and teaching Kadampa Buddhism for 30 years. Kadam John has received oral teachings directly from Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche over a long time and he incorporates many inspiring aspects of these teachings into the study programmes that he teaches.

Teacher Training Programme (TTP) offers practitioners of Kadampa Buddhism the opportunity to study deeply, gain practical experience of both Sutra and Tantra and, if they wish, train to become qualified Dharma Teachers. However it’s not just for those who wish to teach formally, because we all teach through our example and the advice we give to friends and family.  TTP gives us great confidence in our own practice and in our ability to explain Kadam Dharma to others.
