The Melbourne Buddhist Centre is run by the Triratna Buddhist Community, an international network dedicated to practising and teaching Buddhist ethics, meditation and wisdom in the contemporary world. Regular meditation courses and Buddhism courses are held at the Centre. There are five guided introductory drop-in meditation classes per week involving basic meditation instruction alongside classes for more experienced meditators. Public talks on Buddhism are offered by local and visiting speakers. The Centre also offers a program of day retreats and longer retreats providing an opportunity to deepen aspects of Buddhist practice.
2019 – A Dharmic New Year
Wishing everyone a happy New Year full of practice and spiritual progress and friendship. This year the Melbourne Buddhist Centre will continue to offer the community a range of courses covering meditation and Buddhism as well as an opportunity to deepen our practice with day retreats and longer residential retreats. Looking forward to practicing with you in 2019.
All that we have to offer is through the generosity of our Sangha Community. Thanks to all your efforts, the MBC had a successful 2018 and can continue to bring the benefits of the Dharma to the people of Melbourne.
