Compassion Mahayana Buddhist Centre
The Compassion Centre in Newcastle is a part of the New Kadampa Tradition International Kadampa Buddhist Union. Established in 1994, the centre is now a vibrant and friendly residential community, where everyone is welcome to come and find out more about meditation and Buddhism. They offer weekly drop-in classes that are open to beginners, in addition to more in-depth study programmes and retreats. Lending from Triodos Bank is to support the purchase of a new property to expand their residential community, working towards their long term vision of allowing more individual Buddhist practitioners to live together and further their spiritual development.
