About us

A Spiritual Community in East Fremantle

Dharmapala Kadampa Meditation Centre is part of the New Kadampa Tradition - international Kadampa Buddhist Union (NKT-IKBU).

Established in 1994 and developing from humble beginnings, Dharmapala KMC has become a thriving Dharma community offering classes in meditation and Buddhism for all levels of interest to the people of Western Australia. The Centre, which is in East Fremantle, offers a place of spiritual refuge for those interested in living a meaningful life according to the teachings given by Buddha.

The Centre is home to a residential community of ordained and lay practitioners, and is also where we conduct many of our classes, ranging from basic meditation through to formal study programmes. Drawing from the example of our lineage Gurus, the Teachers from Dharmapala KMC endeavour to present the teachings in a practical way so that everyone can apply them in their daily life and through them come to experience greater happiness.

What's in a name? Dharmapala means Dharma Protector. Here at Dharmapala KMC we try to protect Buddha's teachings as they have been passed down in unbroken lineage by putting them into practice in our daily lives and offering them to others.

You are welcome to drop in to the Centre for a visit during reception hours: Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday 9.30am - 12.30pm (except during retreat times or when the Centre is closed. Please check the calendar first). Someone will be happy to show you around, you can spend some time browsing in our shop, visit the meditation room or you can browse the books in our library.
