Beginners

3pm to 4.15pm: A four-week Introduction to Meditation course commences on the first Saturday of each month. These are offered by members of the lay community and outline the techniques, benefits and difficulties of meditation practice. No previous experience is necessary and there is no charge or fee for the classes - so they're priceless! You are advised to wear comfortable, loose-fitting clothing.

Experienced

3pm to 4.15pm: Instruction and guided meditation by a senior monk or nun.

Sangha Dana: Weekend Food Offerings

The Theravadan Sangha of monks and nuns is not permitted to handle money and is entirely dependent upon alms food for their survival. It is widely considered to be kammically meritorious to support men and women living the Holy Life as a monk or nun. Anyone is invited to come along on a Saturday or Sunday morning with a plate of food at 10am in the Community Hall to offer food to the resident sangha. After the food has been offered to the sangha, join the rest of the lay Buddhist community in a shared meal.

(Note: the food offerings occur on weekends outside of the annual Rains' Retreat period. From the full moon in July to the full moon in October, the monks and nuns reside in their monasteries to focus on their practice, and will not be present at Dhammaloka. You are welcome to offer food at either of the monasteries at 10am each weekday. See the Bodhinyana and Dhammasara websites for more information.

Library Hours

Friday 6pm to 7.30pm and 9pm to 9:30pm.

Saturday 2pm to 3pm and 4.15pm to 5pm.

Visit Perth 's largest Buddhist library with an extensive range of books, CDs, videos and cassettes available for loan to members. The Dhammaloka library also has a range of books and CDs for sale. If you are unable to visit during the listed times, check out the library shop online where many items available in the Dhammaloka library are for sale.

Sutta Study Group

2nd & 4th Sunday of the month outside of the Rains Retreat period, 3pm to 4.30pm.

The Sutta Study Group is led by senior members of the Sangha in learning about the Word of the Lord Buddha through reading the Sutta Pitaka (Discourses of the Buddha). Most often it is the Middle Length Discourses of the Buddha (Majjhima Nikaya) that is used. Copies are available in the library.

Open Day - Monday

MONDAY 12 NOON - 3PM

Our friendly volunteer will show you through the centre and answer any questions you may have on Buddhism. You are welcome to browse the Library shop and meditate in the meditation hall. Borrowing of library books however must be done on Friday evening or Saturday when our librarians are here.

"I know that to get fit and help others is a high priority for many of you.

Well, those two things are my passions, and when I saw an opportunity to help in construction of the Dhammasara monastery out while getting fit for Marathon des Sables I couldn’t pass it up."
