General Programme 

Date & Topics (All dates from 19:30 to 21:00)

16th July(Tue): The Dangers of Lower Rebirth? ― Avoiding future suffering?

We may wonder what happens when we die. Buddha taught that the kind of rebirth we take depends on our actions, or karma, and he explained that performing non-virtuous actions is the main cause of taking lower rebirth. How can we be sure we do not take lower rebirth in our next life?

20th Aug(Tue): Going for refuge ― Who can really protect us?

When our life is in danger or we are threatened or sick we usually seek refuge in the police, doctors etc. But they can provide only temporary protection. We can enjoy permanent liberation from all sufferings only by seeking refuge in Buddha, Dharma and Sangha.

23th Aug(Fri): What is Karma? ― Do you believe in Karma?

From non-virtuous actions comes suffering and from virtuous actions comes happiness: if we believe this, we believe in karma. Buddha gave extensive teachings that prove the truth of this statement and showed how we can use our understanding of karma to avoid future suffering and enjoy pure happiness.

27th Aug(Tue): What We Should Know ― The truth about suffering.

In general, everyone who has physical or mental pain, even animals, understands their own suffering; but when Buddha said in his first teaching, ‘You should know sufferings,’ he meant that we should know the sufferings of our future lives and develop a strong wish to liberate ourself from them now while we have the opportunity.

30th Aug(Fri): What We Should Abandon ― What causes suffering?

The main cause of our suffering is our deluded minds, especially our self-grasping. If we abandon our self-grasping permanently, all our suffering and problems of this life and of countless future lives will cease permanently. How can we do this?

Foundation Programme

An opportunity to systematically study and meditate on the essential teachings of Buddhism


Foundation Program (FP) provides an opportunity to systematically study and meditate on the essential teachings of Buddhism. It enables us to deepen our understanding and apply in practice what we have learnt to our daily life.

We will have great confidence in our own ability to meditate and transform all circumstances into the spiritual path. This will bring peace of mind and great benefit to both ourself and to those around us.  (About FP please e-mail us to epc@kadampa.jp

In summary: Learn the Buddhist wisdom view of reality that will enable you to solve your problems


Since we all wish to find lasting peace and happiness, the step-by-step meditations we will learn in this workshop are open to and effective for everyone, irrespective of whether we regard ourselves a Buddhist or not. This means that anyone who attends will be able to take away a practical toolkit for enjoying a happy, meaningful life filled with positivity. What a wonderful way to spend the afternoon!

The teachings will be based on those from the renowned Buddhist Master, Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche, founder of the New Kadampa Tradition. The session will be led by Matt Lucas, a native English-speaker and long-term resident of the Kansai region, who has been practising Buddhist meditation for over fifteen years.

Everyone is warmly welcomed, including non-native speakers and people of all spiritual inclinations, as well as those with no spiritual background and complete beginners.

The workshop will be held in a yoga studio near Umeda. Not only is the central location easily accessible, but it is also a perfect space conducive to meditation. Come and join us in this oasis of peace in the heart of the city!

We will be taking a break over the summer period, so be sure not to miss this last workshop until September.
