Ayya Santacari and Anagarika Pasanna at Christies Beach

Ayya Santacārī Bhikkhunī, a Buddhist nun in the Theravadan tradition has come to live in Christies Beach, south of Adelaide in South Australia. We also have Pasanna, a trainee nun, known as an “Anagarika” living at the Vihara with us since New Year’s Eve last year. We regularly invite other nuns to visit and stay with us.

Ayya Santacārī hosts meditation, Dhamma talks and Dhamma discussions in the lovely peaceful shrine room and garden space throughout the week.  For those who have already learned to meditate, sitting practice times are also offered. You can see the schedule here.


A Residential Meditation Retreat at Woodhouse will be conducted by Ven. Dhammajiva Maha Thero.  Our good friends at the Adelaide Sri Lankan Temple at Crafers have invited this highly esteemed master to teach us meditation and mindfulness. The retreat will be held at:
Woodhouse Activity Centre, 37 Spring Gully Road, Piccadilly, SA 5151
