Welcome to the website of

The Melbourne Dharma House 

Tulku Chökyi Nyima Rinpoche and HE Phakchok Rinpoche traveled to Melbourne Australia during 2012 and offered Dharma teaching.


Following the suggestion made by Chökyi Nyima Rinpoche to some of  the

Ka-Nying Shedrub Ling  students based in Melbourne,  a number of Dharma students have made the aspiration to create a rural Buddhist study and practice center for lay practitioners.

With the blessings of Chökyi Nyima Rinpoche a shrine room for group practice has been established in Melbourne, and this is available to Practitioners of the Chokling Tersar lineage and Dharma students under the direction of our teachers at 

Ka-Nying Shedrub Ling



The Residential Dharma House.

In order to provide this venue for group practice a residential Dharma House has been created in an Eastern Melbourne suburb, with Chökyi Nyima Rinpoche's blessing. The residential practitioners will collectively make available the shrine room for regular group practices by dharma practitioners of our Ka-Nying Shedrub Ling teachers mandala, 

This venue creates a central location available in Melbourne for group practices in the Chokling Tersar tradition of Tibetan Buddhism, and provides a meeting location for practitioners based in Victoria to work towards fulfilling Chökyi Nyima Rinpoche's vision,
