Thursday Night – Meditation and Welcome Back Maitrijata

Thursday April 18 , 7:00 pm 9:00 pm

Everyone is welcome on Thursday Night with drop-in meditation classes at 7pm for regular meditators and an intro class for those with no meditation experience. Learn to meditate with instruction and guidance from an experienced meditation practitioner while meditating with others.

At 8pm connect to the spirit of Buddhism with a program of Buddhist talks introducing the core teachings followed by small group discussion. Discover each week how to put these teachings into practice from members of our Buddhist Community.

This week, we are delighted to celebrate the ordination of Maitrijata (“He who is born from kindness and friendliness” – formerly Rob Young) into the Triratna Buddhist Order. The ordination took place at Sudarshanaloka Retreat Centre in New Zealand on 28th March, with Siladasa conducting the public ceremony. Join us in welcoming Maitrijata back to the MBC, and to hear about his experience on the ordination retreat.


Venue: Melbourne Buddhist Centre/ 23 David Street/ Brunswick
