Foundation Service Seminars (FSS) cultivate our connection to one another and develop what Lama Yeshe called ‘that family feeling’.

On May 18th-22nd 2022, the first FSS to be held in Australia is planned, COVID permitting. Tara Institute, located in Brighton East, Melbourne, will host this international event.

The FSS was created to bring together board members, centre directors, spiritual programme coordinators, volunteers and students wishing to offer service to the Foundation for the Preservation of the Mahayana Tradition (FPMT), the organisation founded by Lama Zopa Rinpoche and Lama Yeshe in the early 1970’s.

The lead facilitator for the upcoming FSS will be François Lecointre, FPMT’s Chief Operating Officer. Allys Andrews from Tara Institute will be the assistant facilitator.
