Dhamma Pabha (which means “radiance”
or “glow of Dhamma”) is nestled in a forest in the slopes
of Mt Dromedary, forty minutes by road from Hobart.
The tall trees and the bushland setting
are far from the noises of civilisation, trains or traffic,
the only sounds being those of the native wildlife.
After twelve years of holding courses at
hired campsites, the first course was held at Dhamma Pabha
in December 1994 using temporary facilities.
From that start, facilities have been improved
and include a warm and comfortable meditation hall, kitchen
and office. The current building project is to complete single-room
Despite Tasmania’s isolation and small population,
a dedicated group of Vipassana students are building a peaceful
sanctuary of Dhamma in the forest there.
