Central west gets live-in Buddhist retreat

Australian Broadcasting Corporation, Oct 9, 2007

New South Wales, Australia -- The central western New South Wales region's first live-in Tibetan Buddhist meditation retreat is being developed in between Cumnock, Molong and Manildra.

Orange-based committee Karma Yiwong Samtem Ling has received a donation of 75 acres of land to develop a meditation hall as well as a longer term retreat centre.

Group spokeswoman Rosalie Aguila says the facility will cater to people studying Buddhism and allow them to complete one, two or 10-day meditation, as well as three-year live-in meditation retreats.

"People that are really serious about meditation, high-level meditators, often have the intention to do this three-year retreat at some point in time," she said.

"They are supervised by a monk all the time, and they live in and that'll be closed off to the general public."
