The Buddhist meditation tradition is equally relevant today as it was 2,600 years ago at the time of the Buddha. Happiness depends on mind and meditation is the supreme method for training the mind. We don’t have to change our belief system, we don’t have to become a Buddhist to practise meditation.
The Tibetan Buddhist Society Buddhist temple in Melbourne offers instruction in the beautiful grounds and temple of the Peaceful Land of Joy meditation centre.
