Discovering the Buddha Within is an experiential learning program of the Buddha Dharma created as part of the vast vision of Guru Vajradhara His Holiness the 12th Chamgon Kenting Tai Situpa.

H.H the 12th Chamgon Kenting Tai Situpa has designed this program to present the essence of Buddha’s wisdom in an accessible and precise manner. This wisdom is universal, and the program is intended for both Buddhists and non-Buddhists alike. This three-year course follows the Buddha’s teachings on the three wheels of the Dharma, and continues with the sacred transmission of the four tantras that correspond to the three gradual levels of recognition of the ultimate nature of mind and phenomena.
For each level, the teacher will explain the view (intellectual understanding), meditation (experiential understanding), and application (applying this understanding to change one’s daily habits) of the topics according to Shravakayana, Mahayana, and Vajrayana. Through these three aspects: View, Meditation, and Action, one will discover the Buddha within oneself. Meditations that form the core part of each level are divided into two sections: Shamatha (calm abiding) and Vipashyana (advanced insight).

Drawing on his 50 years of experience teaching meditation, H.H. Chamgön Kenting Tai Sitoupa has designed this program to expound the quintessence of the Buddha’s wisdom in an accessible and precise manner. This wisdom is universal and this program is aimed at everyone, Buddhists and non-Buddhists alike. The traditional meditations for expressing this wisdom are as simple as they are profound. In a world racked with uncertainty, stress-related problems and conflicts, the three levels of this curriculum apply. Each level is first taught during a short seminar intensive 4-day course by a learned teacher and expert in meditation. will lay the foundations for a serene, benevolent mind filled with wisdom. Then, online follow-up will be led by the Kyorpon appointed (facilitator), also trained in meditation et study. Participants will thus be able to continue to exchange with each other and deepen their practice during group practise and meditation.
