Like a lamp that illuminates the darkness,
by kindling wisdom in our own hearts
we can inspire others to do the same.

About Aloka

As we develop greater inner peace and contentment, we can also benefit those around us and the world at large.

The Australian Buddhist Mission Inc. (ABM) was established in 1986 to support Venerable Mahinda’s efforts to promote the knowledge, practice and realisation of the Buddha’s teachings (the Dhamma) in Australia.  Since its establishment, ABM has endeavoured to make the Dhamma accessible not only to the Buddhist community but also to the wider Australian community.

ABM conducts a variety of activities at Aloka, including meditation retreats, Dhamma sessions, workshops and annual events such as Vesak.

It is our wish that the light of wisdom may shine in the hearts of many.

Visiting Aloka

Despite some phased easing of Covid-19 restrictions, in consideration that the public health situation is ongoing, the Committee wishes to advise that for the time being Aloka remains closed to visitors. The situation will be reassessed over the coming months, and we will advise when Aloka reopens.

Thank you for your understanding. May all be well, happy and safe.
