Drol Kar Buddhist Centre (Drol Kar means White Tara in Tibetan) was established in 1999, when a group of local people from Geelong and the Bellarine Peninsula invited Geshe Sonam Thargye to come from India to teach in Australia.The Centre first opened in East Geelong before moving to Newcomb, where it operated successfully until 2005. An opportunity to purchase a property and establish a permanent home saw the Centre move to its present location in 2005.
The new centre is situated in undulating farmland about 30 minutes from the city of Geelong on the Surfcoast in south-western Victoria. Just minutes away from the seaside towns of Anglesea and Torquay and the world renowned Bells Beach.
The Centre is surrounded by beautiful gardens and native bird life; a peaceful oasis for contemplation and reflection away from the fast pace of modern life. Drol Kar Buddhist Centre provides Tibetan Buddhist teachings in the Mahayana tradition, which offer effective methods to overcome the problems of suffering and dissatisfaction in daily life.
A variety of programs run on Sundays and Tuesdays including a weekly healing meditation group and community outreach programs.
