Teacher: Stephen Archer  
Notes and Events:

Our vision is to promote the practice and realization of being fully awake to the truth of our experience.

Becoming fully present to our experience naturally evokes a response of reverence, compassion and joy. These qualities are the heart of our teaching and practice.

Original Nature Meditation Centre is founded on the ethical principles of the Buddha-dharma. Our work is dedicated to nurturing wisdom and peace in ourselves and others, and for the benefit of all beings.

We acknowledge with gratitude the lineage of our past and present teachers and we belong primarily to the Insight/Vipassana strand of the Buddhist tradition.

About Vipassana

Vipassana or Mindfulness practice is simple and direct. It is the moment-to-moment investigation of the mind/body process through calm, open and precise awareness. Learning to observe experience from a place of spacious stillness enables one to relate to life with a balance of wisdom and compassion. This experience fosters insight into the nature of who we are and increased peace in our daily lives

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.

Rime is the principals of a non sectarian approach to Tibetan Buddhism, the not for profit trust actively invites teachers and organises events at a minimal cost for the benefit of the community. See our website for upcoming events.

Raupo Bay Retreat is situated on a secluded bay with plenty of space in Banks Penninsula, it is available for any organisation to use for group retreats or come for a visit or stay for a solo retreat.

We meet twice a month on special practice days at the Nyingma Buddhist centre for Tsok (Tibetan) or Gana Chakra Puja (Sanskrit) - a Circle Gathering Feast offering. Dates are according to powerful astrological days - the 10th day of the waxing moon (Guru Rinpoche Day) and the 25th day of the waning moon (Dakini Day).

Tsok is primarily a practice of offering. It is a very rich practice with many layers of meaning, and it can be practised on various levels. Further it can be explained: “Ganapuja is a tantric ritual, made up of various phases, whose aim is the reconfirming of the “promise” or commitment (samaya) between the disciple and the master, and also between disciple and disciple. In addition to this, through consuming food and drink in the ganapuja, the practitioners develop their capacity to integrate contemplation with the sense-pleasures, as well as entering into the state beyond dualism, which is the inner meaning of the samaya” - Chogyal Namkhai Norbu Rinpoche, Dzogchen - The Self Perfected State, 1989.

Note: the door to the Community Centre closes at 5.30 pm and so for attendance at evening meditation or courses or other events after hours, it is important to arrive on time so someone can be there to let you in. A mobile phone number will be provided for latecomers enrolled in particular courses.
