Buddha House is a centre for Buddhist study and meditation, located in the suburbs of Adelaide, South Australia.

We are are an entirely volunteer run organization without any paid staff. All fees are used to support course offerings. We have a wide-ranging program from Learn to Meditate classes for beginners, to advanced classes on Buddhist philosophy and practice.

Buddha House provides

  • Authentic teachings by Tibetan Buddhist practitioners who have received their education at Sera Je Monastic University (India). This provides us with the unique opportunity to be a part of an unbroken lineage of spiritual teachings.
  • A vehicle for people to engage in compassionate action toward others.
  • An environment where the real issues in our lives and in society can be looked at and acted upon - where theory and practice can be brought together and nurtured as a living whole.

Our Centre is located at 1 Fisher Street Tusmore (Masonic Hall)
