Tibetan Buddhist Society | Peaceful Land of Joy Meditation Centre
The Tibetan Buddhist Society continues the Tibetan Buddhist tradition in the West.
The Tibetan Buddhist Society's Melbourne property, the Peaceful Land of Joy Meditation Centre, is a beautiful, tranquil ten acre haven, with 2700 rose bushes in 400 varieties, 2500 trees, flowering courtyards and lake and bird life.
A magnificent traditional Tibetan temple, unique in the Southern hemisphere, was completed in 2000 and all classes are held there. His Holiness the Dalai Lama blessed the temple on 23 May 2002, describing it as a place for continuing study and practice of the rich Tibetan Buddhist philosophy, psychology and meditations.
The renowned Tibetan Buddhist master, meditator and scholar, Venerable Serje Geshe Acharya Thubten Loden, now 84, founded the Tibetan Buddhist Society in Australia in 1979. Geshe Loden (Geshe-la) trained as a monk from the age of seven. He left Tibet for India in 1959 after China invaded his country. To find out more please click here.
