Chenrezig Institute, Eudlo

4.3
Chenrezig Institute is a centre for Buddhist study, meditation, retreat, and practice nestled in the foothills of the Sunshine Coast Hinterland in Queensland, Australia. Established in 1974 Chenrezig Institute was one of the first Tibetan Buddhist centre in the Western World and remains one of the largest.

Today, the Institute is home to a Tibetan Geshe (Lama), a large community of ordained Sangha (monks and nuns), students, residents, volunteers, retreatants, and guests.

Apart from the formal study programmes, Chenrezig Institute is a peaceful, calm and relaxing place to spend a few hours, days or weeks. Stroll along the bush paths, wander in the formal garden, sip espresso in the café, have a vegetarian meal, drop in for a meditation class or teaching, or just sit and listen to life.

  • Everyone is so friendly and the monks are very helpful. The meditation was so relaxing and I felt incredibly energized for several hours afterwards
  • Beautiful and peaceful. Nice views
  • Almost exclusively run by volunteers, local and international, with excellent vegetarian food and delicious cakes, and last but not least the courses offered for Buddhism, meditation and yoga are Excellent!
  • Went and stayed for a course over several weeks. The grounds are nice. The nuns are lovely. The monks are nice when they occasionally participate. The regular staff were nice. Unfortunately, the management (specifically Steve) is rude, pushy and has a personality entirely unsuitable for a Buddhist facility. I must say that his attitude and behaviour spoiled the visit for me. Would not recommend.
  • Delicious vegetarian lunch at `Big Love' cafe and life changing teachings in the Gompa.
