Opportunity for new community at Naganaga Vihara, AustraliaPosted by Charlotte Lawes on Mon, 15 May, 2017 - 14:19
Could you be part of a new community at Naganaga Vihara, in the Mid North coast of New South Wales, Australia? Many of us in Triratna have wonderful memories of staying there. There is now an exciting opportunity to take on the property, as the current community move to a town nearby.
“Naganaga Vihara is looking for a new community to take over this piece of paradise. After 15 years of creating Naganaga, the current community has come to accept that we are ageing and no longer able to look after this beloved place. We need to move to a smaller property closer to our local town Kempsey and our growing local sangha there.
This provides a golden opportunity to others to make Naganaga their next home to grow and develop as they choose. Have you ever had a vision of living with friends and running a right livelihood project together in the country? A meditation community? A small retreat centre? A place where others can do solitaries? An opportunity to explore sustainable living? This might be your chance!
Dharmamati is interested in being part of creating a new community and would love to hear from anyone who would like to find out more dharmamati [at] gmail.com
He says: “I really want to support Naganaga and help keep it going. I’m always happy when I’m there and would hate to see it lost to the Movement. It is unique and so beneficial to the many people who come there from centres all over Australia, and indeed, the world.”
He envisions a Buddhafield type of approach with either a mixed or single sex community and possibly including couples. The most important criteria for him would be:
- you want to live in a rural, ecologically-minded community
- you are committed to Dharma practice
We would love to see Naganaga stay within Triratna so if you have any interest in finding out more, please contact us at naganagavihara [at] gmail.com or phone +61 2 65671416. You can also look at our blog for more info and lots of pictures.”
