Construction of Buddharatana Monastery of Australia Inc.
Dear Members of Buddhist communities/Friends of the Dhamma;
Hello; my gracious greeting to you! The Buddharatana Monastery of Australia Inc. was incorporated (Inc. 9886419) and accepted as a charitable institution on 6-10-2006 and registered on 5-11-2007 (ABN No. 11603517984).
Bhante Dhammavaro who was born in Taiwan and came to live in Australia in 1982, he has established a Siladidhamma Pavarasaya Monastery in Perak, Malaysia. Last year when Bhante came to reside his eleventh Vassas at Buddhist Vihara of Queensland, Goodna, he decided to launch the Buddharatana Monastery near this region, so this year with money raised in Malaysia he bought a piece of 20 acres land nested among several National Parks in Urbenville, NSW 2475 (2 hours from
Brisbane/Gold Coast) costing $130,000.
Then he set about to build the Monastery with a Titan colourbond shed consists of a prayers hall, 3 rooms, kitchen, 2 toilets/shower costing $45,000 with money raised locally.
Now in the process of doing this, there comes the crunch of connecting the power to Country Energy, which costs a wobbling $26,000, Bhante is now almost exhausted his financial resources, he henceforth appeals to the Buddhist communities and Friends of the Dhamma to chip in on this noble cause by helping generously.
