“The gift of Dhamma excels all other gifts” – The Buddha (Dhammapada no. 354)

Established in 1953, the Buddhist Society of Victoria (BSV) is the oldest Theravada Buddhist Teaching Centre in Australia. The vibrant teaching program at the Buddhaloka Centre in East Malvern is offered free to the community. The weekly teaching program, Dhamma School, the Teens Group and Cityzen (young adults) along with the Newbury Buddhist Monastery provide great opportunities for all ages, stages of life and varying levels of practice to discover and practice the Dhamma

The Newbury Buddhist Monastery is supported by the BSV and is set on a 150-acres of lush green pasture amidst the rolling countryside neighbouring the Wombat State Forest in Victoria, Australia.

For Ages 5 – 13

The school curriculum focuses on practical Buddhism in contemporary life, we discuss personal and public issues and how the Dhamma can be used to assist us to lead a more compassionate existence with our family, friends and animals.

For Ages 13 to 18

The BSV Teen Program supports secondary school students to learn the teachings of the Buddha (the Dhamma) readily applicable to their lives; and to create a society of Dhamma practitioners amongst themselves

For Ages 18 to 30

CITYZEN aims to help young adults cultivate wisdom and peace through meditation and the Buddha’s teachings. If you have plans to join a social group of like-minded and grow spiritually, you’re in the right place.

Love is not liking somebody. Anyone can do that. Love is loving things that sometimes you don't like.

Whatever disturbance is happening, it is disturbing you for one moment only. But if it echoes in your mind, it will keep disturbing you for a long time.

 

– Ajahn Brahm

Forget about the results. Creating the causes, that is your work. The results will come by themselves.
