Land of Beautiful Vision
What is Sudarshanaloka?
"Sudarshanaloka" means "Land of Beautiful (or Happy) Vision" this Vision is not just about the beautiful view of the hills and water and native bush, "Beautiful Vision" is also about Sangha working together to manifest their shared vision through collective work and practise...not just some abstract unreachable beauty, but the beauty of Sangha.
Sudarshanaloka is a Mandala of different people and activities including the Retreat Centre and resident Community; Lotus Realm Gift and Music shop in Thames; Buddhaloka, the Buddhist Centre in Thames Township (upstairs in the Post office building); Buddhafield, an outreach and Festival team and a network of friendships that spreads across New Zealand and across the World which is the Triratna Buddhist Community
This Mandala grows with each person who forms a spiritual connection with Sudarshanaloka, whether by coming on Retreat, visiting the Community or maybe helping out in some other area. This mandala includes YOU TOO! Sudarshanaloka is all about POTENTIAL and working together to MANIFEST our shared ideals, this IS our Practise! Come and Practise with us.
