    Bodhi Tree Forest Monastery and Vipassana Retreat Centre
    Bodhi Tree Forest Monastery and Vipassana Retreat Centre was founded in 2006 by Venerable Pannyavaro (Pannya) an Australian monk of over 30 years service.
    Pannyavaro spent many years studying and practicing in Burma and Sri Lanka and received higher ordination in the Thai tradition. He is better known as the founder and webmaster of the websites: BuddhaNet.net www.buddhanet.net, World Buddhist Directory: www.buddhanet.info/wbd/ Buddhist eLibrary: www.buddhistelibrary.org

    At Bodhi Tree we are working on developing a meditation community to serve both lay and monastic practitioners on ninety-five acres of beautiful land at Tullera ten minutes from Lismore in the Northern Rivers of New South Wales, Australia. This land has been purchased as a sanctuary and hermitage – known as Bodhi Tree Forest Monastery and Vipassana Retreat Centre.

    Supportive Conditions
    Supportive conditions for ordained and lay practitioners to undertake intensive meditation practice are hard to find in western countries. To assist people to penetrate the heart of the Buddha’s teaching the Buddha Dharma Education Association plans to built a purpose built meditation retreat complex on its land at Bodhi Tree Forest Monastery. After having negotiated planning permission, we are currently work on the first stage of the build!

    The Land

    The land forms and tree cover at Bodhi Tree naturally divide the land making it easy for different activities to coexist here. From two streams with beautiful rock pools the land rises to a large flat plateau. There is a good balance of cleared and forested land with many impressive old trees, the creek valleys have plenty of flat and gently sloping areas. The plateau of 15 acres of rich red soil has expansive and uplifting views and is a natural choice for the Retreat Centre.

    Bush Regeneration and Revegetation Project at Bodhi Tree

    In 2006-2007, with a grant from the Envirofund, Bodhi Tree Forest Monastery planted 1,500 rain forest tree along our creeks and rock pools. Since then we have extended our bush regeneration and revegetation project over the past ten years and have now planted approximately 8,000 trees comprising local rainforest trees, koala food trees as well as fruit and nut trees, which are thriving!

    Rainforest Restoration
    Pannyas-trees-action-632x421.jpg

    When we acquired the land it was very rundown and degraded, which required a massive effort to remove invasive weeds and trees in preparing the land for planting. As there was very little regeneration of the native rainforest we have had to resort mainly to revegetation.

    Below is a sample of revegetation at Bodhi Tree Forest Monastery with new plantings and views of endemic subtropical rainforest we have established since 2006.



    On acquiring the 95 acres (36.91 hectares) of land for a Buddhist Monastery and a Community Retreat Centre in 2006, our focus since then has been to restore the subtropical rainforest, which had been totally destroyed, leaving the land in a degraded state with just invasive trees and weeds.

    More than 99% of the original subtropical rainforest in the Northern Rivers of New South Wales has been cleared since colonisation, leaving just remnants filled with endangered plants and animals. Our effort is and remains the on-ground restoration of critically endangered rainforest.

    The land forms and tree cover at Bodhi Tree naturally divide the land making it easy for different activities to coexist here. From two streams with beautiful rock pools the land rises to a large flat plateau on which the new retreat complex is being built.

    There is a good balance of cleared and reforested land with many impressive rainforest trees. The creek valleys have plenty of flat and gently sloping areas. The plateau of 15 acres of rich red soil has expansive and uplifting views and is a natural choice for the retreat centre, which we have now started to build.

    Hands_Bodih_Tree1.jpg The Rainforest Regeneration and Revegetation Project at Bodhi Tree

    In 2006-2007, starting with a grant from the Envirofund, the Bodhi Tree Forest Monastery with the help of volunteers has been able to plant approximately 1,500 rain forest tree along our creeks and rock pools.

    Since then we have extended our bush regeneration and revegetation project over the past seven years with the expertise of EnviTE assisted by the Green Army we have planted approximately 8,000 local rainforest trees, as well as koala food trees – donated by the Friends of the Koalas, including fruit and nut trees, which are now all thriving!

    Bodhi Tree has received a $5k grant from the Lismore City Council’s “Rural Landholders Initiative” project to extend our bush regeneration work and revegetating of endemic rainforest trees. So with that help we have planted another 1000 trees, to bring up our reforesting effort to approximately 8000 trees.

    Vietnamese Community Fundraiser

    Members of Sydney’s Vietnamese Buddhist community came together earlier this year for a Bodhi Tree fundraising evening. It was a very successful night, the benefits of which will help us to make a start of the building of our new retreat complex.

    Ven. Pannyavaro and the Bodhi Tree Retreat Centre team wish to thank all the volunteers who organised the night and the Vietnamese community for it’s generous support.
