I believe that at every level of society - familial, tribal, national and international - the key to a happier and more successful world is the growth of compassion. We do not need to become religious, nor do we need to believe in an ideology. All that is necessary is for each of us to develop our good human qualities
- His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama

Daylesford Dharma School
Vision…a school community abiding in the view of compassion and universal responsibility.
The Daylesford Dharma School
was established in 2009 and is the first Buddhist primary school in Australia. It is a not for profit, independent school. Founded on the philosophical principles of Buddhism, children are taught compassion, wisdom principles, interdependence and respect for all life, with a focus on community connectivity and sustainability.
"The emphasis of this school is to teach the noble qualities of loving kindness and universal responsibility. We are not trying to change these children, but to awaken and nurture their own deepest qualities – their innate sense of loving kindness and compassion and their own natural tendency towards positive behaviour…"
Geshe Konchok Tsering, School Founder
