DHAMMA FOUNDATION COURSE (DFC)
Term 1: Sat 2 Mar to Sat 1 Jun 2019
Term 2: Sat 6 Jul to Sat 12 Oct 2019

Time : 7.00pm to 9.30pm

In collaboration with Jetavana Dhamma Institute (”JDI”), Buddhist Fellowship(”BF”) will be conducting a Dhamma Foundation Course Intake 2. The course relies on the Buddha’s Dhamma that is found in the Pāli canon which are preserved to this day. It is targeted at anyone interested in knowing what the Buddha had really taught, which is distinctly different from commonly known “Buddhism” that is intertwined with beliefs, culture and traditions.

A unique feature of the course is that it not only imparts conceptual doctrinal knowledge but also explains how to correctly and practically apply the Buddha’s methods to tame the mind. The 30-week course consists of two terms with lectures and tutorials covering three key areas: (1) Buddhist History, (2) Dhamma Concepts and (3) Method of Spiritual Practice (including meditation and application of Dhamma in daily life according to the Suttas). The course is led by a group of Dhamma scholars and practitioners. Tutorials will build on the knowledge acquired through lectures, aiming to consolidate the understanding of the learners through small-group discussions and sharing. In Term 2, there will be a 4-week meditation course by Dr Ng Yuen Yen and a concluding one-weekend non-residential Dhamma retreat led by Sis Sylvia Bay. For participation in the retreat, a minimum 75% attendance of the course (both Term 1 and 2) is required and a Certificate of Completion will also be issued at the retreat.

Using the Buddha's ancient teachings and path of practice, BF and JDI hope our learners will come to appreciate the timelessness, wisdom and beauty of the Buddha’s original teachings and be inspired to walk the Path and apply the Buddha’s Dhamma in daily life.
