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.

Everyone coming to Queensland Regional Buddhist Group locations is welcome to participate in the spiritual programs; which features courses, retreats, talks, guided meditations and discussions.  The sessions provide instruction on how to develop compassion toward all living beings and are based on the teachings of the historic Buddha as co-ordinated by Lama Tsong Kapa.

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.

Notes and Events:

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.

Vision
* Propagate Buddhism in the world
* Print publications about Buddhism
* Organize Buddhist programs on electronic media
* Organize Buddhist seminars and workshops
* Organize religious activities in the Buddhist temples

Mission

At the moment this foundation is conducting a Buddhist Sinhalese meditation radio program in Melbourne, Australia on FM 97.1 every Tuesday from 6.00-7.00 AM also can be heard on www.lakhanda.com, and selecting Sadaham Handa (voice of Dhamma)

Full moon day is a very significant day for the Buddhists; however, it is not a holiday in non Buddhist countries.  As a result, people forget the day of full moon. In order to uphold the significance of the day, our foundation is organizing Dhamma Sermon in the temples in Melbourne. We are also hoping to expand to the other states and to the world.

Next step…….

Our next step to set up a Buddhist Information Centre in Melbourne, a place that enables people that are willing to study Buddhism.

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.
