Other frequent visitors are a family of kangaroos and smaller marsupials, who live in the eucalypt forest nearby.

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.

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.

The Wat Phrayortkeo Temple enters the stream of practice in the Theravada tradition. Wat Phrayortkeo (Lao Buddhist Society of NSW Inc) is a Buddhist centre offering a peaceful refuge and environment for self-awareness. This temple was set up by the Lao community who came to Australia as refugees in early 1976 after the Communists took over Laos. The Lao Community Advancement Co-op and the lay people set up a centre where they can have a temple, a kuti (residence for the monks) and a multi-purpose hall for the community. Once every month, especially during the full moon day, there is a Buddhist ceremony of Alms-giving. It is a time when all Buddhists and non-Buddhists are welcome to take part. If you want a glimpse of our Lao culture, art, customs and traditions, visit our website www.watphrayortkeo.com for all the festivals, Buddhist ceremonies, Lao New Year celebration and food festivals.
