Amitabha Foundation Australia

79 Edgeworth David Ave (the former Uniting Church at the corner of Edgeworth David Ave and Palmerston Rd, Waitara NSW 2077

The Amitabha Foundation is a Tibetan Buddhist Centre located in a beautiful former church on Sydney’s north shore, close to Hornsby, Wahroonga and Waitara railway stations. The Spiritual Director of the Foundation is His Eminence Choje Ayang Rinpoche, a senior Lama in the Drikung Kagyu lineage who also holds and teaches from the Nyingma lineage.

We offer meditation courses, study and practice groups for people interested in the Buddhadharma, regular public drop-in meditation sessions and the opportunity to become part of a supportive spiritual community.

Rinpoche guides the Amitabha Foundation Australia, like all his centres world-wide, to express the “two wings of the bird” of the Buddha’s teaching. One “wing” is wisdom: providing the opportunity for people to receive, study and practise the authentic teachings of Buddhism in a warm and supportive environment which welcomes people from all backgrounds, cultures and degrees of experience in the Buddhadharma. The other “wing” is compassion: providing active service and help to both our local community and to disadvantaged people in Tibet, Nepal and India.

We offer the opportunity to support the development of our Spiritual Director’s great Buddha Amitabha Temple and Retreat Centre in Nepal, as well as the Phowa teaching centre he is developing in Bodhgaya, his monasteries, nunnery and Kalimpong retreat centre. We also support small business, women’s health and education projects in remote far east Tibet (Kham) and run a successful sponsorship scheme for Tibetan refugees in India.
