Sydney Sangha

Sangha is the community of Buddhist practitioners. In the Triratna Buddhist movement this comprises members of the Triratna Buddhist Order, mitras (friends) of the Triratna Buddhist Community and all the many people who participate in our activities.

The Sydney Buddhist Centre and Vijayaloka Buddhist Retreat Centre are owned, operated, maintained and loved by the Sydney sangha as part of our collective practice. We get to know each other, deepen our friendships and practice generosity, ethics and wisdom through these projects. We see this as an expression of gratitude towards the Buddha’s teachings and an opportunity to offer these teachings to others.

We have certain classes and retreats which cater for those who have been practicing Buddhism and who are familiar with the meditation practices we teach. This common understanding allows us to go deeper with ourselves and each other in our Dharma practice.

We also hold classes and retreats specifically for Order members, for mitras and for those who have asked for ordination. These are sometimes just for men or just for women.
