Don't miss this year's  Sakyadhita International Conference. It is an exciting opportunity to to travel to Korea, get together again with Buddhist friends from around the world,  explore Buddhist culture, meet like-minded Buddhist women and be inspired by both the country, the papers delivered and the teachings given.

The Conference will explore the theme ‘Living in a Precarious World  Impermanence, Resilience, Awakening'. It will explore implications of the Covid pandemic, plus sexism, racism, nationalism and war . .. not to forget climate changes and catastrophic climate events.  These will be looked at from a Buddhist perspective.

Sakyadhita International was formed in 1987 in Bodhgaya India under the patronage of HH the Dalai Lama. It seeks to build community to benefit Buddhist women and nuns, to reduce gender injustice and awaken women to their potential.

Every two years Sakyadhita International organises a conference where Buddhists- Sangha and laypeople -  come together to share issues affecting Buddhist women and the wider society.  Because pf Covid 19 the 2020  Conference was delayed and will now be held digitally Dec 26-28th 2021. 

The Australian branch was formed after the Indonesian Conference in 2015. It has national representation and is affiliated with Sakyadhita International.
