Welcome to Atisha ...

Atisha Centre is a peaceful retreat centre and hub of Buddhist education, nestled in the quiet native bushland of central Victoria, near Bendigo. Founded in 1981, the Centre provides a serene and welcoming setting for all who seek time out from busy lives or learning about Buddhism.
Situated in close proximity to Atisha Centre is the Great Stupa of Universal Compassion, currently under construction, and soon to become among the most significant Buddhist temples and pilgrimage destinations in the world, and the Thubten Shedrup Ling Monastery, where monks devote themselves to study, meditation and spiritual transformation.

Atisha Centre is a Mahayana Buddhist centre affiliated with the FPMT. Our spiritual Director is Kyabje Lama Zopa Rinpoche and we follow the teachings of His Holiness 14th Dalai Lama of Tibet. 
The Dja Dja Wrung people are proudly acknowledged as the traditional owners of this land.

“Atisha Buddhist Centre  is a Tibetan Buddhist meditation centre, providing opportunities for study and practice of a spiritual path, where people can develop their natural wisdom and compassion.”
