A rich tapestry of traditions has been woven by Asian cultures around the essence of
the teachings of the Buddha, who lived 2,500 years ago. The enduring nature of
Buddhism is symptomatic of its integrity as a spiritual discipline. Over the past
several decades Westerners have begun to learn from and participate in the diversity
and essence of Buddhism.
Over the 37 years since its founding, the annual Buddhist Summer School has
become one of the foremost gatherings in Australia for Buddhists from various
traditions to discuss and explore relevant topics, bringing insight and practical
advice from each tradition. The 37th annual Buddhist Summer School will offer
courses on Buddhist philosophy, practice and psychology by esteemed teachers.
