Introduction to Buddhist Philosophy and Meditation

(Currently suspended due to Covid)

Each month at Tara Institute, a senior student introduces a different aspect of Buddhist philosophy and meditation. The aim is to couple Buddhist theory with practical techniques that you can use every day; each class will give you something useful to contemplate. The evening usually ends with a brief question and answer session.


Classes are open to everyone, regardless of religious affiliation or current knowledge of Buddhism. While there can be between 50 to 150 people attending, there is no need to book. Simply come to the front entrance where there will be two people at the desk; you can just let them know you are new and they will introduce you to the Centre.


To assist in maintaining the Centre and the ongoing teaching program, we do ask for  a $5 facility fee to help cover administration expenses. After the class, please join your fellow attendees for tea and cake in the dining room.

If you have further questions, please call our office on 9596 8900 between 9am and 5pm Monday to Friday.
