Discovering Buddhism, Module 04: The Spiritual Teacher

Investigate the role of a teacher on the spiritual path, the need for a teacher, the qualities of a teacher, the qualities of a student, and how to relate to a teacher for the greatest benefit in your spiritual life.  Consider the challenges faced when entering into a guru-disciple relationship and learn how to overcome these skillfully.

DB Module 04: The Spiritual Teacher is a 4-week module, offered on Mondays, 7:00-8:30pm, June 5, 12, 19, 26, 2023.

The Spiritual Teacher is part of a two-year series of classes called Discovering Buddhism. In this course we explore 13 essential topics in Buddhism, from Meditation to Karma to Death and Rebirth, with much, much more! This is an excellent course of study for those who have the very basics and wish to start going a little deeper into Buddhist philosophy.

DB was developed by our affiliate organization, the Foundation for the Preservation of the Mahayana Tradition (, and is taught at Kadampa Center by senior lay students with many years of study and practice. Students who take the course together tend to develop great friendships with their Dharma buddies!

In keeping with our long-standing tradition, Kadampa Center does not charge a fee for any Dharma course. These teachings are too precious to allow money to be an obstacle for anyone to hear them!  We do, of course, have expenses to offer the course, so we happily welcome any heart-felt donations.

The instructor for this class is Robbie Watkins.
