Welcome to Tharpa Choeling Australia

Our new Buddhist centre has been established in Wellington New South Wales. Set in the grounds of a former garden centre, we offer meditation, Buddhist workshops, with many more activities planned for the future.

Tharpa Choeling was named by Venerable Geshe Thubten Dawa, a highly respected Tibetan master in the Gelug Buddhist tradition. Geshe Dawa's main teacher is the 15th Lab Kyabgon Rinpoche. We hold His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama as the head of our lineage.

"Bodhicitta transforms afflictve emotions, suffering and fear,
and sickness and death
into the path to enlightenment."

Khunu Lama Tenzin Gyaltsen.
Consider we are surrounded by all beings in the universe and generate compassion for them. Think of the Buddha and feel great devotion to Him. Now, with compassion and devotion, pray:
Teachers, Buddha's Bodhisattva, please listen!
Just as You,
Who in the past have gone to bliss,
Conceived that awakened attitude of mind,
Likewise, for the benefit of all beings,
I will generate this self-same attitude.
