The Tashi Choling Dharma Foundation (TCDF) Inc is a not-for-profit organisation incorporated since 1994.  The organisation provides facilities and activities which benefit both the increasing numbers of people in the community who identify as Buddhist and those people, from all backgrounds and beliefs, who wish to have access to quality instruction in meditation and mindfulness to enhance health and well-being.


The aims of the organisation are (1) to provide teachers and formal courses of education in meditation and Buddhist philosophy conducive to the development of wisdom, compassion, inner peace, stability and good citizenship; (2) to foster open communication amongst spiritual traditions to promote religious and social harmony; and (3) to contribute to the welfare of the Australian community by undertaking and providing activities and amenities which facilitate the above.


The programs and activities of the TCDF are open to all, and regularly attract participants from across Tasmania, from other states of Australia and occasionally internationally.

The organisation undertakes a number of activities in support of its aims and objectives.  These include:

  • Ownership, management and operation of Dorje Ling meditation retreat and education centre in Lorinna on Lake Cethana in remote north-west Tasmania.  Dorje Ling is the second oldest Buddhist retreat Centre in Australia, hosting its first meditation retreat in 1977.  It is situated on 48 acres of native forest and parklands, and includes a hexagonal log meditation hall, a kitchen/dining room/dormitory, a fully renovated caretakers/managers house, a self-contained long-term retreat house/teachers residence and seven retreat huts.  A solar electric system serves the property, which also has ample space for camping.  The centre is used regularly for group meditation and yoga retreats, is used weekly by the local Lorinna community for activities focused on yoga and health, and is also used by many individuals seeking opportunity for quiet contemplation and rejuvenation.  The centre was built, purchased and is maintained by volunteer labour and contribution.
  • Provision of weekly classes in meditation and Buddhist philosophy, and access to a library, open to all, at Tashi Choling Buddhist Centre in central Hobart;
  • Organising and hosting visits by international teachers of Buddhist meditation to Tasmania, including facilitating programs of public talks, weekend workshops and more lengthy meditation retreats for the Tasmanian public;
