Welcome to Wellington Buddhist Centre, the hub of a community of people interested in practising meditation and exploring the teachings of the Buddha. We are part of the world wide Triratna Buddhist Community.

If you are new to Buddhism or Meditation, and want to learn more Wellington Buddhist centre is an ideal place to begin your exploration of the richness of the Buddha’s teachings. We try to engage with the Buddha’s teachings in the conditions of the modern world, free from the cultural baggage of traditional forms of Buddhism.

We aim to practice and present a form of Buddhism that is grounded in the core teachings and practices that underlie all the different ethnic schools of Buddhism. This means that you will get an appreciation of the overall scope of Buddhist approaches rather than focus on one tradition.

The Buddha once said that spiritual friendship is the whole of the spiritual life and in Triratna friendship is one of our central ideals. So if you are already familiar with Buddhism Wellington Buddhist Centre can support you in your practice by helping you meet like minded people.

You can find out more about us by a attending  a drop-in session, a course or by coming to our Open Night.
