Welcome

unspecifiedThe 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 as well as introductory drop-in meditation classes. Public talks on Buddhism are offered by local and visiting speakers.

The Centre caters for visits from school groups, as well as providing speakers for schools and colleges. There is a well-stocked bookshop at the Centre and a DVD library of Buddhist films.

The Triratna Buddhist Community is an organisation whose charter is to make available the teachings of the Buddha to people of all cultures and backgrounds. We draw inspiration from all the great Buddhist schools to facilitate practice in a Western cultural context.
