E-Vam Institute Melbourne
Kagyu E-Vam Buddhist Institute in Melbourne is indeed now one of the most
progressive centers in Australia. Offering seminars on 'East-West psychology'
and wider social and ecological issues..... Despite its contemporary orientation,
the Institute has not lost touch with its tradition."
Excerpt from 'History of Buddhism in Australia',
Paul Croucher, News South Wales University Press, 1989, p114.
E-Vam Institute is a dynamic and vibrant Buddhist
centre that has been established in Melbourne for more than 20 years.
We offer meditation instruction,
courses, retreats and conferences
on various aspects of the Buddhist tradition from the perspectives of
the main denominations available in the world today. We invite you to
participate in this rich program.
E-Vam Institute welcomes your support in the form of donations and through regular pledges. Through your support E-Vam Institute has been able to provide a rich program of introductory and advanced courses to the public.
Donations have helped to develop a city centre in the central location of North Carlton, and a country centre (Maitripa Centre - Healesville) an hour drive from the CBD in the foothills of the Yarra Ranges. In addition to a full program hosted by E-Vam Institute, both these centres have been made available to other spiritual and health related organisations.
In recent years the upgrade of both these facilities has been a priority - a gradual transformation seen by many people over the years and includes the following:
- Internal renovations, expansion of the main meditation hall and painting at E-Vam Institute
- Internal and external painting at Maitripa Centre
- Renovation of both meditation halls and the toilet facilities at Maitripa Centre
- Extensive landscaping of the oval at Maitripa Centre.
- Full renovation and furnishing of all accommodation rooms at Maitripa Centre
Donations over $2 are tax deductible. Cheques should be made payable to the K.E.B.I Building Fund and can be posted to the Melbourne office.
