The Amitabha Buddhist Retreat Centre Association, Inc. is a registered charitable
organization, ABN 64 335 416 792.
The centre does not charge a fee for attendance at any retreat or for any of our
Dharma materials. We like to foster the practice of dana, giving or generosity, for
all who attend retreats, visit our centre, or call asking for books and DVDs.
Over the centuries, a relationship of mutual support has evolved between the lay
and monastic members of the Sangha. This relationship has enabled Buddhism to survive
and grow. The lay person trains in the world and helps support the centre materially
because he or she is in a better position to do so than those training full-time
in the centre. The monastic trains in the centre, teaching and offering spiritual
support and encouragement through example.
The centre itself provides a physical focus where teaching and training can be given,
received, understood and carried into the world. Both the lay person and the monastic
mutually contribute to each other’s spiritual success.
We practice dana by offering the teachings without a price tag. You can practice
dana by making a donation of money, time and/or labor. Your donation allows us to
continue offering the teachings to others. This center was built and is maintained
solely by the generosity of all of you who value the teachings.
