Buddha Bodhivana Monastery

Address: 780 Woods Point Road   East Warburton Vic 3799

Spiritual Director: Ajahn Kalyano  
Notes and Events:

Buddha Bodhivana Monastery is primarily a training monastery for Buddhist monks (bhikkhus), novices (samaneras) and postulants (anagarikas), but it also provides a supportive environment in which individuals, families, visitors and residents are given the opportunity to be in contact with the principles of the Buddha’s teachings and to cultivate those same qualities in their own lives. The monastery is a place to study, practice and cultivate the central elements of the Buddha’s Path: generosity, virtue, mental cultivation, wisdom, and compassion.

As our principal function as a monastery is to train monastics we wish to minimize time attending to administrative duties. Email is therefore reserved solely for making requests to stay at the monastery. We are unable to respond to general questions about Buddhism whether these concern school projects, college research or are of general interest.

note: temporary address, updated details to be added later

Amawatura Buddhist Centre was set up in 2015 by Dr Gamani Goonetilleka, Ven Ratmalane’ Sirisumana Nayake’ Thero, Ven Hapugoda Buddhadatta Nayake’ Thero with overseeing advice from Ven Dr Ratmalane’ Somaloka Thero, in Sydney Australia. We were Incorporated in March 2016 and subsequently registered as a ‘not for profit’ charity in Australia.

Australia is a very successful multicultural nation and we are proud to be a part of it. Access to Sri Lankan Buddhist monks in the Sydney region is limited as the small numbers of monks present at the Sri Lankan Buddhist temples in Sydney region are extremely hard pressed to find the time to engage in various Buddhist cultural aspects to help the Sri Lankan Buddhists and other interested persons in the diverse community. Amawatura Buddhist Centre (Inc) is proceeding to develop a ‘Sri Lankan Buddhist Cultural Centre’ involving establishment of a Buddhist monks’ residence, a ’place of Buddhist worship’, and a Buddhist Library. We hope to have a complete Buddhist cultural programme, much more than we offer now. Till we secure a permanent ‘Place of Worship’, all our functions such as ‘Poya’ Full moon day ‘Sil’ programs, Vesak and Katina celebrations, other significant events in the Buddhist Calendar which attract a reasonable number of devotees are held in Halls hired for the purpose. As of now our resident monks are available to visit households for Almsgivings, Buddhist blessing ceremonies, accept invitations for Buddhist sermons, Pirith Chanting and other necessary Buddhist Cultural activities to help the Sinhala speaking Buddhists and others in the Australian, Chinese, Cambodian, Vietnamese, Burmese, Indian and other communities. The idea is to offer spiritually essential Buddhist cultural support, teach Mindfulness, Insight Meditation, and interact with devotees in brotherhood. Our Committee has Sinhalese, Tamil, Chinese, Vietnamese, and Indian persons, all working together with the wider Buddhist community to enrich each other’s lives in a manner of ‘UNITY IN DIVERSITY’.

We are a small but Incorporated and registered charity in Australia and actively seek donations to complete this project towards establishment of a permanent ‘Place of worship’ to better serve the Buddhist public and others in necessitous circumstances in Sydney NSW Australia.
