About Shantideva Buddhist Foundation


The Shantideva Buddhist Foundation continues to enable Lama Tendar to bring highly trained monks and nuns to Australia, who have received monastic training in Dharma and have developed qualities of love and compassion to also teach.


They will be able to pass on these precious teachings to others and assist Lama Tendar, to achieve this second stage of his vision: Buddha’s teachings continuing in Australia to benefit future generations.


The name ‘Shantideva’ is inspired by the great Nalanda Master Shantideva, who is the author of the revered text “A Guide to the Bodhisattva’s Way of Life”.


This text has inspired many generations of Tibetan Mahayana Buddhists to cultivate and develop ‘Bodhichitta’ qualities themselves, to relieve the suffering of all beings.


Our vision is to have a retreat centre in peaceful surrounds to support students who wish to undertake short and long retreats to also develop these good qualities, under the supervision of highly qualified teachers.


The foundation will also offer many types of training in Dharma and the healing arts for individuals and groups who are committed to learning Dharma.
