// ABKM in Brief

We are a group of practising Buddhist friends from all over the world.
The founding chapter is based in Melbourne, VIC, Australia. 

Our aim is to learn and practise the teachings of Buddha (Theravada) in a supportive and social environment.

Our programs and initiatives are designed to further our progress in our Buddhist life.


Buddha's last words were

"Vayadhamma sankhara - Appamadena Sampadetha "

All conditioned things are impermanent - Strive with Diligence
