Notes and Events:

Teachings at our centre are traditional and authentic, by one of the original Lamas who escaped from Tibet with His Holiness Dalai Lama, Ven Khensur Rinpoche.  He is very ably assisted by Geshe Jampa Gyaltsen, who was carefully chosen by Rinpoche, because of his extremely high academic and philosphical achievements, coupled with his great reverence for the teachings, his spontaneous and accurate insights and soft demeanour. His Holiness has described him as being "ïn the inner circle of my friends.

We usually hold an annual 11 day retreat in October, and many weekend teaching workshops throughout the year.  Ven Rinpoche gives initiations into Highest Yoya Tantra Deities, and various other teaching events.

We also have other classes, run by our Sangha and advanced students: Learn to Meditate, Introduction to Buddhism, Compassion and Medicine Buddha Meditation Days, Healing Meditation Days, Practice Days, Vajrayogini, Yamantaka, Green Tara, Chenrezig, Medicine Buddha Practices, Guru Pujas.

Notes and Events:

The Tibetan Buddhist Rime Institute was founded in 2006 under the direction of Tibetan Lama Khentrul Rinpoche in Melbourne, Australia. It teaches the Ri-me view of harmony within all Buddhist traditions and respect for all spiritual traditions. In addition, it is introducing the extremely precious, rare and unique Jonang Kalachakra lineage teachings in the western world, with the hope that these will flourish.

The Ri-me view means to understand the uniqueness of the teachings of all different traditions and be able to view these in a non-contradictory way, so they can benefit everyone.

In the western world we already have a very extensive education system which gives us a good understanding of the external world. However, there is very limited opportunity to learn how to control our thoughts and emotions and master the inner world. If we engage in this type of training, it can give us powerful inner strength and a deep level of happiness, which is independent of outside circumstances. Learning this wisdom in a Ri-me way is a most rare and precious opportunity, which can bring harmony, unity, appreciation and genuine love to the members of groups, communities and families, and within any relationship. The teachings give us practical and profound wisdom in a simple way for the benefit of everyone, regardless of one\\\'s beliefs or background, and can help us achieve a meaningful life.

For those who already have a solid foundation in Buddhism, the institute provides authentic Mahayana and Vajrayana teachings and opportunities for retreat. Our main goal is to propagate on the Kalachackra Tantra, which we are very privileged to be able to share, as it is a powerful practice for individual and world peace.

The Institute also undertakes many projects, one example being the fascinating annual tour of Tibet, with the goal of experiencing and learning about a different way of viewing life, along with a different culture, lifestyle  and authentic spirituality. Through this we can develop an enriched attitude, wisdom and inner capacity, helping us discover true happiness within ourselves. Also we have the opportunity to spend money in a most beneficial way, supporting people with extremely poor healthcare and in need of basic education.

Activities at the Institute include:

Meditation for beginners: Tuesdays 7.30pm - 9.00pm, Wednesdays 1.00pm - 2.30pm and Sundays 10.00am - 11.30am

Introduction to Buddhist philosophy for beginners: Wednesdays 7.30pm - 9.00pm

Advanced Buddhist philosophy: Thursdays 7.30pm - 9.00pm.

Dhamma Rasmi ("Rasmi" means ray of light or sunshine) is in a beautiful sub-tropical area known as the Sunshine Coast, 140 km north of Brisbane.

Forty acres were purchased in 1989 and another twenty acres in 1993. The land is gently sloping and partly timbered, with a small tree-lined creek. Facilities include a high-ceilinged octagonal hall for 200 students, dormitories for 30, a kitchen/dining building, and a reception/administration area with servers rooms. The next phase of accommodation includes six 2-bed cottages and shady tent sites.

A minimum of two courses are held at the centre each month. A growing number of meditators have settled in the area to help the management, and gain benefit by visiting for group meditation. Other frequent visitors are a family of kangaroos and smaller marsupials, who live in the eucalypt forest nearby.

These courses are conducted by Assistant Teachers to S.N.Goenka of the Vipassana International Academy, India.

Provides residential 10-day courses to the general public at the Vipassana meditation Centre located in West Brookton. Around six 10-day courses are held each year. During each day of the course, participants observe a basic moral code, refrain from talking with each other, and devote most of the day to practicing meditation. Daily instructions and discourses provide step-by-step guidance. With continued practise the mind calms down, develops concentration, and begins to observe the reality within - this is knowing oneself directly. All courses are funded by donation.

Contact: Martin Rose  
Notes and Events:

Dhamma Pabha (which means "radiance" or "glow of Dhamma") is nestled in a forest in the slopes of Mt Dromedary, forty minutes by road from Hobart. The tall trees and the bushland setting are far from the noises of civilisation, trains or traffic, the only sounds being those of the native wildlife.

After twelve years of holding courses at hired campsites, the first course was held at Dhamma Pabha in December 1994 using temporary facilities. There is now a warm and comfortable meditation hall, kitchen and office. The next project will be to build more permanent accommodation for the students. Despite Tasmania\\\'s isolation and small population, a dedicated group of Vipassana students are building a peaceful sanctuary of Dhamma in the forest there.

Ten-day residential courses in vipassana meditation are held every month. All ten-day courses begin the evening of the first day and end early morning of the last day. Vipassana means to see things as they really are. In a ten-day course students learn to develop heightened awareness and concentration, which is then used to examine their own mental and physical nature. By this practice they gain insight and detachment to free themselves from such mental tensions as anger, greed and fear.

These courses are conducted by Assistant Teachers to S.N.Goenka of the Vipassana International Academy, India.
