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.

Truly auspicious and a festive time,
A happy morning and a joyful rising,
A precious moment and a blissful hour
Will come for those who offer alms
To the ones who lead the holy life.
On such a day, right acts in words and deeds,
Right thoughts and noble aspirations,
Bring gain to those who practise them;
Happy are those who reap such gain,
For they have grown in the Buddha’s Teaching.
May you and all your relatives
Be happy and enjoy good health.
[Anguttara Nikaya (III, 150)]
