Auckland Buddhist Centre

Cancer Network Group Service



The Auckland Buddhist Centre is part of a worldwide movement called the Triratna Buddhist Community. At the heart of this community is the Triratna Buddhist Order which was founded over 40 years ago in the United Kingdom by Sangharakshita to bring the ancient wisdom of the Buddha's teachings into the modern world.

We offer a broad program of events and activities including meditation and Buddhism courses, retreats and festivals throughout the year.

After becoming familiar with our core meditation practices, all are welcome to attend our open Monday night program (Dharma Night) where experienced members of our community give talks on Buddhism. We also offer group meditations on Tuesday and Saturday mornings.
