The Buddhist Chaplaincy aims to provide support to students and staff on campus. The Buddhist Chaplain provides assistance and advice/counselling to students on personal development, and work together with Student Life and Learning whenever required. The Buddhist Chaplain also gives talks on Buddhism at various faculties/departments upon request.
In addition, the Buddhist Chaplain also guides and assists the University of NSW Buddhist Society (UNIBUDS) in running the Society and sharing the teachings and peacefulness of the Buddha with everyone at the university.
UNIBUDS organises regular Dharma talks (Buddhist talks) every Thursday and Friday evening during the university semesters. They also hold regular lunch time meditation sessions at the Religious Centre and meditation workshops bi-monthly. In addition to the above activities, UNIBUDS also organise weekly social gatherings or sports activities for members.
Activities of UNIBUDS can be found on www.unibuds.unsw.edu.au
The Buddhists look upon the Buddha as a teacher. The essence of the Buddha’s teachings is to do good, avoid evil and purify the mind. It is by putting effort into practising the teachings ourselves that we can gradually develop perfection of wisdom, compassion, purity and peace like the Buddha. As the saying goes:
By ourselves is evil done;
By ourselves we pain endure.
By ourselves we cease from ill;
By ourselves become we pure.
No one can save us but ourselves;
No one can and no one may.
We ourselves must walk the path,
Buddhas only point the way.
