Discovering the Buddha Within is a new learning program of the Buddha Dharma created by His Holiness the 12th Chamgon Kenting Tai Situpa. Guru Vajradhara feels it’s time to install and transmit a well-designed curriculum with teachings and instructions step by step from the three Yanas to ensure a sound foundation of Buddha Dharma knowledge which can lead to a meaningful and fruitful study and practice according to the lineage which will be taught by our Palpung Tulkus, Khenpos and Lamas.
