Buddhist Society of Western Australia

We are a Buddhist non-profit association serving a local and global community irrespective of age, colour, creed or sexual orientation. Our aim is to establish and support both male and female monastics to practice in a secluded, forest setting close to the original way in which monastics practised in early Buddhist communities. This forms the basis for nurturing teachers in the present and future to offer wisdom and insight derived from personal practice to a diverse and growing lay community. We offer numerous resources and support to those interested in practising the Dhamma as laid out in the Four Noble Truths and Eightfold Path by the historical Buddha.

In the spirit of reconciliation, the Buddhist Society of Western Australia recognise the Traditional Owners and Custodians of the land on which we live, work and care. We pay our respects to Elders past, present, and emerging. We extend that respect to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in Australia.
