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 for both newcomers and those with some experience. These include meditation and Buddhism courses, a range of regular weekly events from Sub 35 evenings, Buddhist devotional meditation/rituals and Buddhist Recovery Network meetings. We also offer non-residential and residential retreats and festivals throughout the year.

All are welcome to attend our open Monday night program (Dharma Night) where experienced members of our community give talks and lead explorations on Buddhism. We also offer group meditations on Monday evenings and Tuesdays, Thursday and Saturday mornings.


The Auckland Buddhist Centre is run by members of the Triratna Buddhist Order and those training for ordination. Many of us have years of practical meditation experience, both in terms of personal practise and successfull teaching. Straightforward, contemporary, effective and accessible meditation instruction is something we aim for.
