The Association’s primary weekly activity for 2021 will be our Thursday night Dhamma talk (Buddhist teachings) and meditation practice. Dhamma talks are focused on aspects Buddhism and Buddhist practice, and are usually conducted by our Spiritual Teacher Ven. Tejadhammo, but from time to time may be conducted by a guest teacher. An up to date schedule of guest teachers will be available for 2021 at https://www.engagedbuddhists.org.au/teaching/. The dhamma talk is then followed by a silent meditation of around 30 minutes. All welcome, no previous experience necessary.

Venerable Tejadhammo Bhikku is the Spiritual Director of the Association of Engaged Buddhists. Bhante teaches and conducts regular courses and retreats which are open to the general public, and is regularly invited to teach other groups of ordained Sangha. Apart from these teaching and retreat activities, Bhante works with people who are seriously ill in various hospitals, hospices and their homes in and around Sydney, teaching healing meditation, providing spiritual support and assisting people in dealing with the end stages of life.

Venerable Tejadhammo Bhikku was ordained by Venerable Tanchaokhun Phra Visalsalmanagun, Chaokhana Changwat, Phuket, in Thailand. Bhante has a background in Western Philosophy and Theology, and has studied and taught at Silpakorn University, Thailand. Before returning to Australia he taught in Thai universities and jails. Although ordained in the Theravada tradition, he has also studied with Tibetan and Mahayana teachers and has a commitment to the Dharma that he believes encompasses all traditional expressions of it. He is a founding member of Australian Monastic Encounter which seeks to promote inter-religious and inter monastic dialogue.

The sessions will also be available as Zoom meetings with the meeting opening at 7pm. Interaction via Zoom will be limited to chat as we are primarily making this available as a service to those who can’t attend in person.
