Foundation Year

The Foundation Year

The first element of the new Dharma Training Course for Mitras is the one-year foundation course which has been developed by Vadanya. It is aimed at people at the ‘new mitra’ level and based around the three declarations made on becoming a mitra: being a Buddhist; practising the Dharma (looked at through the Threefold Way); and the FWBO. The Course is already being widely used and is proving popular.

Vadanya has now finished working on a revised version of the course which includes more detailed material on our basic liturgy as well as some edited versions of the existing material. It is now available from

The Teacher’s Notes can also be found at but you will need the general Order username and password to access them.
