Sakyadhita International Conference in Australia

June 23, 2019 - June 28, 2019

The 16th International Sakyadhita Conference will take place on 23-28 June 2019 in the Blue Mountains of Australia, near Sydney.

The theme, New Horizons in Buddhism, explores changes within Buddhist circles worldwide, in response to current global concerns. What has Buddhism to offer in the face of our shared challenges? And in particular, what are the particular qualities which the female voice can bring in facing these concerns?

Our host country Australia, can well illustrate these challenges as a home to many diverse cultures, including many Buddhist traditions.

Please join us for this inspiring conference, which will include talks, workshops, meditations and discussions led by women from across the world, engaged in Buddhist practice, learning and service. There will also be Post Conference Temple Tour and Sydney city to visit the iconic Opera House and Harbour Bridge. People of all genders, lay and ordained of all ages, nationalities and perspectives are welcome.
