Welcome to the Toowoomba Buddhist Centre
The Toowoomba Buddhist Centre is affiliated with the Triratna Buddhist Community, which was founded as the Friends of the Western Buddhist Order (FWBO), in 1967 by Sangharakshita. It is an international movement with activities in more than 20 countries, including India. The Triratna Buddhist Community is a non-sectarian Buddhist movement which seeks to promote the practice of Buddhism in a form appropriate to the modern world. Triratna means "Three Jewels", specifically the Buddha, Dharma, and Sangha, which are the central foci of a Buddhist's life and practice.
The Toowoomba Buddhist Centre provides a series of courses aimed at introducing interested people to Buddhism and Buddhist Meditation and it's application in Western life.

“In the same way I saw an ancient path, an ancient road, travelled by the Completely Self-awakened ones of former times. And what is this ancient path …? Just this noble eightfold path … I followed that path. Following it, I came to direct knowledge of aging & death, direct knowledge of the origination of aging & death, direct knowledge of the cessation of aging & death, direct knowledge of the path leading to the cessation of aging & death… I have revealed it to monks, nuns, male lay followers & female lay followers, so that this holy life has become powerful, rich, detailed, well-populated, wide-spread, proclaimed among celestial & human beings.”
[Samyutta Nikaya, XII, 65.]
