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.

Aims

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.

Activities

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;

Notes and Events:

Four Winds is located 80 ks south of Cairns, North Queensland, on a 66 acre property, 26 acres of which is in World Heritage rainforest. The property is close to rainforest, waterfalls and pristine beaches. It is an idyllic place to develop a meditation centre.

Peter and Nancy Cowham are the Directors of Four Winds. Both have a long association with Buddhist meditation and practice. Nancy was one of the early lay residents at Wat Buddha Dhamma after it was founded in 1978.

Peter spent five pansahs as a bhikkhu in NE Thailand between 1977 and 1983. His uppacchaya was Venerable Luang Por Chah of Wat Pah Pong. Peter was privileged to have practiced under Luang Por for he last five years of his effective teaching life before diabetes debilitated the famous Ajahn. Peter learnt to speak and read Thai and Lao and compiled translations of Luang Por\\\\\\\'s talks during the time he spent with him. A recent pilgrimage to visit Ajahn Chah\\\\\\\'s memorial at Wat Bah Pong has inspired Peter and Nancy to reconnect with their heritage and make available a retreat facility for Buddhist meditation and practice in the forest tradition of Thailand and Lao.

The developing facility is available for meditation and other related courses by appointment. Camping facilities and a meditation hall will be available once completed. Organizations wishing to utilize the centre should contact Four Winds by email on cde.fourwinds@gmail.com Meditation sessions are held regularly. Please phone or email for a current schedule.

Anyone wishing to visit Four Winds must ring first and be willing to observe the Pancasila while on the property. Courses will be advertised on our website (when it is completed).

Help for the Dying and Their Carers

Birth and death, sickness and health, are part of the reality of human existence. In particular, our attitude towards dying and death makes a great deal of difference to the way in which we experience them. Wheel of Life - Hospice Service offers training so that each of us can prepare for our own death.

Helping others wherever one can, according to their needs, is the true expression of compassion. Wheel of Life – Hospice Service aims to offer this gift of affection and love, companionship and emotional and spiritual support to those individuals and their families who are facing life-threatening illness, to the dying, to those who have died and to those who are left grieving.

The Coordinator of the Wheel of Life-Hospice Service is Venerable  Losang Chodron.

Wheel of Life is a community service of the Hayagriva Buddhist Centre.
