Rongton Buddhist Centre is a small, but dedicated, group of practitioners who are also associated with the national network of centres established within the Sakya tradition of Tibetan Buddhism, by Lama Choedak Rinpoche. Established in 2004 and incorporated as a not-for-profit association in 2009, the Rongton Buddhist Centre was named after a celebrated 15th century Tibetan Buddhist scholar Rongton Sheja Kunrig, who also founded the renowned Nalendra monastry outside Tibet's capital, Lhasa.
Rongton Buddhist Centre hosts retreats and teachings by Lama Choedak Rinpoche and Khenpo Ngawang Dhamchoe throughout the year, as well as hosting visits by other highly qualified Lamas from International Buddhist Academy. We also warmly welcome teachers from all Buddhist traditions.
Our centre also runs weekly meditation practice sessions, and regularly teaches Introductory Calm Abiding Meditation courses. Please note that Calm Abiding meditation does not requires one to be a Buddhist, and is therefore suitable for anyone who wishes to discover and develop their inner potential. Details of any up and coming visits by our precious teachers, and meditation courses on offer, can be found on our "Noticeboard" page. Should you wish to contact our centre for further information, please email us at email@example.com or phone Ven. Tsultim (0439 992 312) or Robin (0409 486 540).
