About Buddha House
Avg. Price / day
Buddha House is a center for Buddhist study and meditation, located in the suburb of Magill, Adelaide, South Australia, and is affiliated with the Foundation for the Preservation of the Mahayana Tradition (FPMT) a global network of over 160 centers including monasteries, nunneries, publishing houses, healing centers, hospices, and meditation centers.
In the beginning
As a result of a visit to Adelaide by a Tibetan Lama in 1981 Lama Thubten Yeshe (and in 1982 Lama Zopa Rinpoche) a need for a place to study and meditate became apparent. From the humble beginnings of meeting at a student house, the center now offers a comprehensive program of teachings and practices, providing the South Australian community with the conditions for the study and practice of the Gelug Tradition of Tibetan Buddhism.
We are an entirely volunteer-run organization without any paid staff. All facility fees are used to support course offerings, teachers, and the buddha meditation center. We have a wide-ranging program from Learn to Meditate classes for beginners, to advanced classes on Buddhist philosophy and practice.
Buddha House provides authentic teachings by Tibetan Buddhist practitioners who have received their education at Kopan Monastery, Nepal, and Sera Je Monastic University,. This provides us with the unique opportunity to be a part of an unbroken lineage of spiritual teachings. In addition, Buddha House is a vehicle for people to engage in compassionate action toward others and an environment where the real issues in our lives and in society can be looked at and acted upon â€“ where theory and practice can be brought together and nurtured as a living whole.
