Blooming of the Lotus Urban Hermitage

Address: 9/2 Harkin Court  Mitchell Park SA 5043
Tradition: Mahayana
Affiliation: Inspired by the Vietnamese Truc Lam/Bamboo Forest meditation lineage.
Phone: 0437169657
Find on:
Main Contact: Resident monk: Venerable Thích Thông Pháp.  
Notes and Events:

“Blooming of the Lotus Urban Hermitage” is the home of an English-speaking group meeting on Saturdays at 10 a.m. at 9/2 Harkin Court, Mitchell Park for meditation and Dharma study. Meditation is also available to those interested at 8.30 am on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday at Oasis Centre, Flinders University. We are closely associated with “Buddhism at Flinders University”.

Tinh Giác is Vietnamese for “Wake Up” and refers to both our initial awakening to the need for a path to help us live deeply and the continuous process of awakening throughout our lives. This name has been given to the group by the Most Venerable Thich Thanh Tu, a meditation master and founder of the modern Truc Lam (Bamboo Forest Lineage) in Vietnam. The name given to us has not been translated literally into English, but has been expressed in the form of a traditional Buddhist image in order to express more poetically the meaning of Tinh Giác.

  In order to realise the aspiration inherent in our name we focus on studying and practising the ethical principles of Buddhism (The five precepts), meditation in the Bamboo Forest/Truc Lam tradition, the teachings of the Buddha found in the sutras and the gentle building of a fourfold Sangha.

Buddhist books, DVDs, CDs and audiocassettes are available for a three-week loan from the library.

Bodhicitta Dakini Monastery

Address: Golden Valley,Near Launceston   TAS 7304
Tradition: Mahayana, Vajrayana, Tibetan Buddhist/Forest tradition
Affiliation: Bodhicitta Foundation NGO / Kalyanamitra Foundation
Find on:
Teacher: Venerable Ayya Yeshe  
Notes and Events:

We are a socially engaged Centre of contemplation that is slowly forming with the aim of providing training, shelter, emotional and spiritual support to Western nuns, monks and the lay community based around the traditional model of the four fold Sangha of nuns, monks lay women and laymen (and non binary people) founded by the Buddha.

 We will emphasise gender equality and nun driven leadership, because currently women are left out of most positions of power in Tibetan Buddhism and have historically received less support and education.

We invite you to be a part of this exciting project to offer teachings and establish the Dharma in the West to create a more compassionate, peaceful and sane world.

Our aim is to create a monastery and retreat Centre where monastics in the Tibetan tradition, who currently have to pay money to pay in lay Centres can live in the Vinaya, do deep practice and study as well as social service and gain the insights necessary to preserve the vast and profound Teachings of non sectarian Tibetan Buddhism.

We will also draw inspiration and influences from other traditions such as the Thai Forest tradition (such as using alms bowls, doing the Kathina cloth, alms round, tudong pilgrimage, living in simplicity in nature with a monastic routine), as well as the Plum Village Thich Nhat Hanh tradition, (beginning anew, non violent communication, communal harmony, mindful eating and living).

Bodhicitta Dakini Monastery is a non sectarian Mahayana monastery that welcomes people to stay and meditate and support our resident monastics. We welcome all people, but are a female led temple with a focus on contemplation and social justice work occasionally outside the monastery.

Golden Valley is a rural locality in the local government area of Meander Valley in the Launceston region of Tasmania. It is located about 59 kilometres south-west of the town of Launceston
