About Us

The Sydney Buddhist Centre is part of a larger international Buddhist movement called the Triratna Buddhist Community (formerly called Friends of the Western Buddhist Order or FWBO). Although each city centre, retreat centre, and right livelihood business is independently run and managed by local members of the Triratna Buddhist Order, the network of friendships within the Order link all these different individual situations together. Therefore, the uniting force within this international Buddhist organization is simply friendship. And the Sydney Buddhist Centre is simply one jewel in this web of friendships.
