Queensland Regional Buddhist Groups Logo

Queensland Regional Buddhist Groups (QRBG) is a not for profit organisation based in Caloundra, Queensland.

Our resident teacher, Venerable Tenzin Namdag, is an Australian Buddhist nun trained in the Tibetan Gelugpa tradition of His Holiness the Dalai Lama. She has travelled widely and taught Buddhism in Australia and overseas.

QRBG currently has active groups in Bundaberg, Cairns, Caloundra and Maleny. Venerable Namdag travels regularly to these locations for teachings and conducts two residential retreats per year. Many members of these groups meet weekly or fortnightly to do  readings and meditate when Venerable Namdag is not there.

Any groups interested in inviting Venerable Namdag to conduct teachings or speak about Buddhism are welcome to contact us via our website or mobile.

Our aim is to provide Buddhism for all and everyone is welcome.

Everyone coming to Queensland Regional Buddhist Groups locations is welcome to participate in the spiritual programs; which features courses, retreats, talks, guided meditations and discussions. The sessions provide instruction on how to develop compassion toward all living beings and are based on the teachings of the historic Buddha as coordinated by Lama Tsong Kapa.

We uphold the Mahayana strand of Buddhism and our aim is to preserve the teachings in an unmistaken way. The teachings help to train the mind in loving kindness, compassion and patience.
