As well as offering a vibrant teaching program at the Buddhaloka Centre in East Malvern, in September 2014, monastics from the Buddhaloka Centre and from Sanghamittarama, our vihara for bhikkhunis, moved to the newly established Newbury Buddhist Monastery. NBM a beautiful 150 acre property at Newbury, about 100 kms north-west of Melbourne.
