UNIBUDS at a Glance

The University of New South Wales Buddhist Society (UNIBUDS) was first founded in 1981, by Dr. Ching Liang Lim and his small group of committee members which became the first Buddhist organisation on campus in Australia. Venerable Tsang Hui from Hwa Tsang Monastery and Venerable Chao Khun Samai from Wat Pa Buddharangsee are currently the patrons of UNIBUDS, and have been since it first established.

UNIBUDS is a non-sectarian Buddhist society and thus it supports all Buddhism schools and traditions e.g.: Theravada, Mahayana, Tibetan and so on. Over the years, UNIBUDS has grown and flourished to be the largest student Buddhist society on campus in Australia. The activities and events held during a year period include regular English and Chinese dhamma talks, weekly sports sessions, monthly meditation workshops, meditation retreats, social functions and lots more. UNIBUDS always maintains a harmonious relationship among members within the society and outside the society with other Buddhist societies in NSW.

UNIBUDS objectives are as follow:

  1. To encourage, foster, promote, develop and extend Buddhism within the University
  2. To bridge and develop a better understanding of the Dhamma Teachings from various Schools of Buddhism
  3. To promote Buddhist meditation practices
  4. To cater to the welfare of members
  5. To foster goodwill, mutual understanding and friendship among Buddhists, other religious groups and the Australian public
