Over the last twenty years, Khen Rinpoche Geshe Tashi Tsering’s Foundation of Buddhist Thought course has been incredibly popular with people from all walks of life, non-Buddhists and Buddhists alike. So why would those who don’t even consider themselves Buddhist wish to study this course? As Geshe Tashi writes: 

“Huge technological, economic and scientific developments have transformed both humanity and the planet we live in. In many cases the changes have been positive, but certain changes have been negative and even extremely destructive.

And although technological advances have solved many superficial difficulties that humanity once faced, the fundamental human problems remain as they always have. In both wealthy and developing countries, we find the same basic human difficulties, whether dissatisfaction or disharmony, poverty or prejudice, and see that, as always, they are mainly created by human beings themselves.

In this world so radically changed yet still grappling with the same fundamental concerns, I feel great benefit can be gained from re-examining the old wisdom. For this reason I chose to create the Foundation of Buddhist Thought course.”
