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.

“They call him Buddha, Enlightened, Awake, dissolving darkness, with total vision, and knowing the world to its ends, he has gone beyond all the states of being and becoming. He has no inner poison-drives: he is the total elimination of suffering. This man, brahmin Bavari, is the man I follow. It is like a bird that leaves the bushes of the scrubland and flies to the fruit trees of the forest. I too have left the bleary half-light of opinions; like a swan I have reached a great lake.”
