Notes and Events:

The Pure Land Learning Center is a non-profit incorporated association and was granted Tax Exempt status by the ATO in 2001. The center devotes its full effort in introducing the concept of Buddhism as an education. It guides us to be filial, respectful to our teachers, cherish our traditional values, and promote multicultural understanding between different religious and ethnic groups as The Buddha explained "WE ARE ALL ONE ENTITY".

We conduct weekly meditation, Dharma lectures, and supply free Dharma materials. All services are free of charge and everyone is welcome to join us. We follow the instruction of the Buddha to deliver his teaching to anyone who has needs or is interested in Buddhism, without discrimination and conditions.  We hope everyone who practices according to the teachings will benefit spiritually and physically, and will prosper in whatever they are doing. Only then can there be harmony among people, and world peace.

Our center is affiliated with the Pure Land Learning College of Toowoomba, Queensland. We operate independently from the college in the financial and management aspects, however, we share the same mission and objectives and receive guidance from the same master, Venerable Chin Kung.

Notes and Events:

Quang Minh Temple is a centre for the Vietnamese Buddhist community in Victoria, as well as the office of the United Vietnamese Buddhist Congregation of Victoria. The Temple is situated about twelve kilometres west of Melbourne’s CBD, overlooking the gentle Maribyrnong River.

Current Developments at Quang Minh Temple

In the next five years, Quang Minh Temple will emerge as one of the most significant Buddhist institutes in Australia, with plans for a new shrine, meditation huts and a Community Services Centre with additional training facilities. The fundamental aims of Buddhism are to encourage people to live in peace and harmony by providing essential cultural, social and educational services to the community at large.

Quang Minh Temple is currently engaged in a major project i.e. constructing a new Temple, Community Services Centre and Stupa on the site at 18 Burke Street Braybrook.

This new Temple will cost in the vicinity of $10 million dollars. Construction began in April 2006 and will be completed by December 2009.  The new structure will have three levels; one level will be completely dedicated as a ‘Community Services Centre’ with updated interview and training facilities incorporated in the internal layout of the building.

By providing dedicated areas/levels within the new Community Services Centre, we will be able to expand the delivery, range and quality of the services we provide, including increasing access to quality facilities to various agencies to provide additional outreach services on site.

The Buddhist community at Quang Minh Temple over the past 5 years has been delivering a number of community services from Braybrook in partnership with various agencies. These services include: Work for the Dole program; drug and alcohol counselling; health and education programs; and accredited training courses including aged care and youth services. The current buildings from which these services are delivered have become overcrowded, limiting the expansion and range of services provided.

As part of the new development, we at the Temple are keen to ensure that the services we offer reflect the needs of the community. It is our intention, in collaboration with key stakeholders in the region, to integrate programs in the community that reflect the most urgent, and in some cases, the long term needs of the community.

Notes and Events:

Founded in 1989 by the late teacher Zen Master Seung Sahn, internationally renowned Grand Master of the Kwan Um School of Zen, the Queensland Zen Centre – Dae Kwang Sa or “Great Light Temple” is a residential training temple for students of Zen Buddhism. 

The temple offers a training program consisting of daily meditation practice, monthly retreats, and introductory courses for persons interested in discovering their life direction.  In awakening the Bodhisattva ideal, one’s essence is realized and spontaneously functions for the benefit of all beings.

The formal aspects of Zen training consist of sitting and bowing meditation, chanting of sutras, and kong-an practice, a process of direct inquiry into one’s true nature as it appears in each moment.  The temple’s resident teacher oversees all aspects of Zen training including giving Dharma talks and kong-an interviews.

The temple’s resident teacher is Zen Master Sen Shin.  An ordained nun since 1990, Zen Master Sen Shin received transmission in Zen Master Seung Sahn’s lineage from Zen Master Dae Gak in 2006.

Zen Master Sen Shin also oversees the teaching at the Queensland Zen Centre’s practice groups at Nundah (Nundah Zen Group) in Brisbane and at Runaway Bay (Gold Coast Zen Group) at the Gold Coast.

About Buddhist Vihara Victoria

Buddhist Vihara Victoria Inc. (BVV) was established in 1994 under the guidance of the late Venerable Gangodawila Soma Thero. The association is affiliated to the Siri Vajiragnana Dharmayathanaya in Sri Lanka. From its inception, there were three major objectives for setting up this Vihara:

1) Setting up an education, research and Information centre to make the Buddha’s teaching (Dhamma) available to all who come in search of it

2) To be a focal point for the next generation of Australians to learn and follow the Buddhist way of life including practices of Dana (letting go), Seela (virtue) and Bhavana (meditation).

3) To safeguard and protect the welfare of all living beings and promote inter-communal peace, harmony and amity.

The Vihara, which started at Noble Park grew in numbers until, the pressing need for more space made it necessary to move to more spacious premises.
A residence for the monks was built on a five acre property in Berwick and the Vihara moved there in March 2001 and was named Sakyamuni Sambuddha Vihara.

Plans are underway to construct a hall to provide space for all those benefiting from the services provided by the Vihara.

These include; the Dhamma school, meditation programs, public discourses, cultural and religious festivals. This will also house the library and research facility.

    Notes and Events:

    The monastery situated on 99 acres, 9 kms from Bundanoon along the road to Goulburn, borders a national park stretching 30kms to Jervis Bay. Few monastic sites are its equal in terms of breathtaking views, a dozen friendly, accommodating monks, vegetarian food, pristine air and water, idyllic forest setting, wildlife - woodducks, peacocks, lyre birds, wombats and wallabies - tranquility and opportunity for meditation practice. Abbot, Ven. Noom, though only about 5th or 6th in line of seniority, presides with a balance between strictness and liberality, drawing on skills learned from Thai forest masters and as a successful businessman.

    Visitors or welcome to apply for permission to stay. A list of the precepts and monastic traditions is available on arrival. As there is a lot of free time, the Wat is ideal for experienced meditators or those not requiring structured meditation.
