In 2022 the Kunsang Yeshe Retreat Centre relocated to new premises in Katoomba. We are just a short walk from the railway station and are not far from the central business district which has many businesses and retail outlets, not to mention some wonderful tourist attractions.
With the help of many visiting teachers we hope to continue bringing an interesting and varied Buddhist Dharma program to the mountains. A Yellow Tara statue now commands centre stage in the Gompa. Yellow Tara is the goddess of good fortune and well being.
If you are interested in meditation or Dharma teachings please have a look at Upcoming Events. Our opening hours are listed in the Contact Us page. And if you can help out in any way, financially, by becoming a volunteer, or becoming a member please check out the Support Us page.
