Triratna Buddhist Community

This retreat is by invitation only and led by a team of senior members of the Triratna Buddhist Order for men who are training for ordination.

Such area retreats are held three times a year at the moment. Two 'national' local retreats held later in the year at both Vijayaloka in Australia and Sudarshanaloka in New Zealand. And a combined retreat early in the year which rotates between the two venues.

If you are a GFR mitra visiting the area and would like to attend this retreat, please contact either Ratnavyuha through the Auckland Buddhist Centre or Siladasa through the Melbourne Buddhist Centre. We enjoy having visiting GFR mitras on these retreats, but space is limited and we may need to give priority to men training for ordination in this region sometimes.

There are similar ordination training retreats held in Australia and New Zealand by a team of senior women order members also.
