Ajahn Brahm in Sydney

Monday, May 3rd, Roselea Community Center, 7.30-9.30pm.

Ajahn Brahm is one of the most insightful, unpredictable, and popular Dhamma teachers in Australia and internationally. He is visiting Sydney to speak at this year’s Mitra conference. This is your only chance to see him speak in Sydney outside of the Mitra conference.

Most of Ajahn Brahm’s talks in Sydney have been near the city center, which is not very accessible for many people. We have chosen the Roselea Community Center as it is familiar to the Buddhist community (Aloka’s food fairs have been held here), and is close to the demographic center of Sydney’s Buddhist community. It’s going to be a very inspiring occasion, so make sure you come – and bring your friends!

Like all of Santi’s Dhamma teachings, this event is free of charge.

This event is part of the Buddhist Council of NSW’s Buddhist Festival Month. It is organized and presented by Santi Forest Monastery.

Location: Roselea Community Centre, 647 – 671 Pennant Hills Rd, Beecroft.
Entry Fee: By donation
