About the Centre
Chenrezig Institute is a Buddhist study, retreat and meditation centre perched on the edge of the Blackall Range in the Sunshine Coast hinterland of Queensland, Australia. We are tucked away in a rainforest setting, seven kilometres from the township of Eudlo.
The centre was founded in 1974 by Lama Thubten Yeshe and Lama Zopa Rinpoche. It was one of the first Tibetan Buddhist centres established in the western world and remains one of the largest. It is a registered non-profit organisation affiliated with the Foundation for the Preservation of the Mahayana Tradition (FPMT), a group of over 150 Mahayana Buddhist centres worldwide.
The centre is home to a Tibetan teacher, resident nuns and monks, and a community of lay students, volunteers, and guests. A range of secular and Buddhist programs are offered, through which people’s minds and hearts can be transformed for the benefit of others.
The program includes introductory classes in meditation and Buddhist thought, general teachings with the Tibetan lama, advanced study courses, regular ceremonies, traditional Buddhist retreats, Buddhist holy day celebrations, sacred art courses, wellbeing courses, and special events. Most events are now available online.
As well as our beautiful meditation hall, the very heart of our centre, we also offer a vegetarian cafe, an extensive library, an art studio, the Garden of Enlightenment memorial gardens, and extensive rainforest grounds, all of which are open to the general public. A range of simple accommodation is available for those wishing to stay.
