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

Notes and Events:

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;

Vipassana Meditation Tasmania (Dhamma Pabha)

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.
