Welcome to the Sydney Buddhist Centre About us

The Sydney Buddhist Centre in Newtown offers courses in Buddhism and Meditation in a friendly, supportive environment. Our teachers are practising Buddhists who strive to incorporate the ideals and practice of Buddhism into daily life. Our meditation techniques can be used by anyone regardless of religious beliefs.

Our Newtown centre is part of a worldwide movement - the Triratna Buddhist Community (formerly the Friends of the Western Buddhist Order or FWBO) which was founded in 1967 by the Venerable Sangharakshita.

The Triratna Buddhist Community draws upon the entire Buddhist tradition and expresses itself in a fresh and dynamic way.

The Sydney Buddhist Centre has run activities in various locations since 1981. Join us for classes and retreats and meet people with similar interests.
