The Newcastle Buddhist Centre provides classes in meditation and Buddhism open to all, as well as giving educational talks to schools and colleges.

The Centre is a registered charity and is run by a governing council of trustees drawn from our local Buddhist community. The Centre is legally and financial autonomous from the wider movement and is financed through our activities and the generosity of members of our community. Meditation and Buddhism activities are facilitated by members of the Triratna Buddhist Order, and other experienced members of our community.

We are dedicated to communicating Buddhist truths in ways appropriate to the modern world and we look to address the question of how do we translate ancient practices and make them relevant to the high-tech 21st century? We hope to play a part in creating new and viable Buddhist traditions for the modern world — a contemporary context for timeless teachings.
