Welcome to Wellington Buddhist Centre, 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.
In the meantime join our mailing list to keep up to date with events at the centre.
Next Open Night: – Triratna: a Unified Movement
Tuesday 24 April, 7 pm – 9 pm
In the second in our series on the six distinctive emphases of Triratna Achala will talk about how Triratna is a unified movement.
Triratna is unified in the sense that membership of it is open to all regardless of nationality, race, colour, education, class or caste, cultural background, gender, sexual orientation, or age: it seeks to welcome and value all as individuals. More specifically, the Triratna Buddhist Order is open to both men and women on fully equal terms.
Suggested donation: $15 (waged) / $10 (low income)
